The print version is slightly more detailed than the online version.
"The group isn't releasing details, but the commercial is likely to be an anti-abortion message chronicling Pam Tebow's 1987 pregnancy. After getting sick during a mission trip to the Phillipines, she ignored a recommendation by doctors to abort her 5th child and gave birth to Tim".
"Jim Daly, President and CEO of Focus on the Family, said the commercial comes at a time when 'families need to be inspired'".
"Now that the ad has been shot, we're excited to tell people it's coming because the Tebow's story is such an important one for our culture to hear", he said. "You won't want to miss it".-- --------------------------------------------------------------
No Jim, you're wrong. I'd rather watch Tiger Woods do an ad for KY jelly.
The networks most likely would refuse an ad for Planned Parenthood, because it would be too controversial. They've already refused anti-war ads. If they don't pull it. I ain't watching.
5. imagine all the pregnant women who are poor they could have helped with those dollars
women who need more healthcare than they can afford to ensure as healthy a pregnancy as possible. Or how about women like that poor woman who was forced against her will to bed rest when she told the doctor she could not as there was no one to take care of her two kids. imagine if the money had gone to a charity that provides childcare in cases like that.
17. I think it depends on the network -- last year's SB was on NBC, and I think they did

refuse some controversial ads. This year's game is on CBS.
On edit: of course, CBS also rejected a moveon.org ad several years ago because they said they didn't accept "issue advocacy" advertising. So if they've accepted this spot, it would appear they've changed their policy. Or their just hypocrites.
that this was such a crisis pregnancy that Mrs. Tebow chose to give birth in Manila. Now Manila is a nice place, don't get me wrong, there are many fine things in Manila, but when it comes to OB-GYN care, it's not exactly the Upper East Side. what kind of mother, faced with this much of a crisis, where her doctors are suggesting abortion to save her life, then goes to Manila?
The nerve of them, telling women that just because a doctor recommends that you have an abortion doesn't necessarily mean that it's the best thing to do. What kind of a message does this send??? The fuckers!!! The message they should be sending pregnant women is that if there is even a modicum of doubt at any time during their pregnancies, the best thing to do is abort first and ask questions later!
