CBS Faces Pro-Abortion Pressure to Scrap Pro-Life Ad Featuring Tim Tebow
Washington, DC -- CBS is facing pressure from pro-abortion groups to scrap the pro-life advertisement Focus on the Family plans to run featuring Tim Tebow. He is the University of Florida football star whose mother chose life over abortion despite a debilitating medical condition during her pregnancy with Tebow.

The abortion enthusiasts are out in force, heartened by the election of their pro death leader, Obama.
Time for them to get “Browned out” too!
It still amazes us how vicious pro-abortion advocates can be, especially when they dont get their way, or sense that their cause is being threatened in a serious way.
For all their talk about respect of mothers, of choice, and of differences of opinions, none of those things apply to actual pro-life people. Or in this case, the mother of Tim Tebow.
Here is just one example. Its important for us to read this and realize the level of anger we are facing. This from Tommy Craggs at DeadSpin:
"Im guessing the Tebows ad, for spanky Jim Dobsons Focus on the Family, will extol the glories of family and motherhood and the value of children and other seemingly innocuous fare; it will also be 30 seconds of anti-abortion dog-whistling to the Christian right on a frequency somewhere beyond the range of only CBS executives. The moral, implicit or otherwise, will be: dont terminate your pregnancy; that blastocyst might turn into Tim Tebow.
"... But the Tebows message should be called for what it is, and what it is is outright quackery that doesnt differ appreciably from my going on television with a toy stethoscope and urging America to start treating itself with leeches."
Breathtaking, isnt it?
And this sort of vitriol is not even limited to individuals. As Matt Archibold points out, the Center for Reproductive Rights, in a letter to CBS, is flat-out claiming Tebows mom is a liar!
The wider audience however those who are not passionately pro-life or pro-abortion are seeing both sides of this issue for who they are, and thats always a good thing for pro-lifers.
Here at CatholicVote, we believe in supporting Tim Tebow, the brave choice of his mother, and the smart decision made by the CBS executives.

Brian Burch and Thomas Peters,
P.S. The fact that we are talking about a successful pro-life ad airing during the Super Bowl speaks volumes about our movement. We are growing more confident and more effective every day. Anyone involved in efforts to affirm the dignity of human life should feel proud next Sunday when this ad is broadcast to hundreds of millions around the world.
