What is the National Organization for Women afraid of? Apparently a touching story about a courageous woman who chooses life in the face of adversity is just too much to take. And when her football star son decides to share that story on Super Bowl Sunday, well, that goes too far. Its divisive.
NOW and its affiliate organizations the Feminist Majority and Womens Media Center are condemning the Super Bowl advertisement featuring Tim Tebow and his mother Pam, calling it an offensive anti-choice ad.
Could you imagine anything more ironic? The organization that purports to embrace women and choice is desperately clamoring to shut down the most loving choice of all: the choice for life. Yet the women of NOW cant abide 30 seconds of a heart-warming story. What would producers at Lifetime Television say?
Lets be real. Whats the worst case scenario here? That if Americans hear this message they will choose to make sacrifices in order to have a child and bring a wonderful life in to the world? Thats hardly an abhorrent message.
These groups are not for women and they dont want them to have a choice. They only want women to choose the path of abortion. Never mind that abortion has been shown over and over to be destructive in numerous ways, both physically and psychologically. But, *please* dont tell people that there are alternatives.
In their efforts to cling to the old feminist mantra that we somehow need abortion, NOW sells American women short. They assume that women are so weak-brained and easily manipulated that they must be protected from a life-affirming message.
This fracas over the Super Bowl illustrates perfectly how NOW & Co. are losing their grip as their pro-abortion position sinks in public opinion. For the first time in decades,

Of course NOW has NEVER been “divisive”
Neither has Roe v. Wade
These people are outrageously dangerous
Earlier this year, NOW President Terry O'Neill, confessed to the National Journal that the organization is struggling. "It seems to me we are stalled out..."
Choice, my ass.
Why is NOW so afraid of this ad? Because it reminds these angry, embittered ,dried out, post-menopausal , childless harridans that they are just that: angry, embittered, dried-out, post-menopausal, childless harridans and they can’t stand to see a woman choose to bring life into the world and be happy for it. . In the nags world, misery loves company. (and abortion).
When it comes to trading in death and coldblooded genocide, the abortion peddlers don’t take a backseat to any of the butchers in mankind’s history. They are pros.
Look at Tim Tebow.
This ad might make women who have had abortions question whether it was the right 'choice'.
And it might give pause to women who are tempted to make the 'choice' in the future.
Tim Tebow puts a face to abortion.
He is no arbitrary 'product of conception'...
He is a living, breathing, good looking athlete...
..and every woman has to ask....'what if'
That's what NOW is afraid of.
It never was about “choice.” Like so many examples, the left perverts the meaning of words for its own advancement. They say “choice,” which, to most people, means an alternative, that one could opt for one way or another way, for one act or another act, etc. However, to the banshees at NOW and their leftist enablers, “choice” means nothing of the kind. No, to them, choice means only one option, one alternative, one act: abortion. To “choose” anything other than abortion is no choice at all, but some sort of fascism.
Why? -”Believe like WE believe, or be silenced!”
-courtesy of the party of peace, love and tolerance...
Love it! And Gloria Allred (sp?) on Kelly’s show today opined that because abortion was illegal at the time of Tim’s birth a CBS disclaimer to that effect should be part of the ad! Never mind that health of the mother would have been a mitigating factor. Talk about a derangement syndrome.
***trading in death and coldblooded genocide***
Keep repeating: They are not pro-choice - they are ONLY PRO-ABORTION.
Since 1973 FIFTY MILLION AMERICANS HAVE BEEN KILLED in this genocide.
Murdered by a scalpel or killed by a coat-hanger - abortion is still murder.
“Pro Choice” is really just a euphemism for pro death.
I will not say that every member of NOW is a Marxist lesbian.
I will say that every member of NOW I have ever known was a Marxist lesbian.
But that is not conjecture, it is a statement of fact.
What? Roe v. Wade was 1973
“The law of the land” since then. Tebow is what, 23 at most?
Math major, Gloria?
Sorry—I should have added “in the Philippines.” She’d checked on Philippine abortion law to come up with her argument against CBS’s decision to air. She either hadn’t discovered or refused to recognize that even Philippino law excepted health of the mother which, of course, was a factor in the ad. What didn’t come up at all was whether or not Tebows were assigned to Clark or other military base where, after 1973, abortion would have been legal (if not U. S. subsidized).
Since 1973 FIFTY MILLION AMERICANS HAVE BEEN KILLED in this genocide.
Can you imagining travelling to a foreign planet, observing its society, and upon asking how many people lived there, you were told “250 million; it would have been 300 million except we killed 50 million while in their mother’s womb. Convenience, you know?”
Nevertheless, your point is correct. In the first place, if Pam Tebow had wanted to abort her baby boy, she could have come back to the USA to do it: the Philippines was just a temporary assignment for her.
In the second place, the Philippines has a "necessity defense" written explicitly into statute law: if her survival were truly at risk -- a genuine toss-up between her life and the baby's life ---this law could be invoked to legally justify a life-saving procedure. (This law was quoted by another FReeper in a previous thread.)
So NOW and Gloria Allred are simply retailing falsehoods once again. Which doesn't surprise anybody. I think even their followers have come to expect it.
And in an age/era when contraceptives are virtually fool-proof except for user error, those numbers are really outrageous. Just more not having to be accountable/responsible. Why not? They can always have it 'taken care of'.
If abortion were illegal, a LOT more people would be motivated to use contraceptives correctly.
Yep, the day I had my now 37 year-old twins. I did what I could to counter.
well said. i have always wondered why the “pro-choice” crowd has such a problem with ladies who CHOOSE to have a child rather than an abortion. to me choice is a)give birth and raise the child. b)give birth and give the child over to another family thru adoption. c)abortion- the last resort of a desperate and dangerous pregnancy.
but the so called womens rights movement sees only one choice and that is abortion. for them the right to choose means a woman murders her unborn child
I think it is ingenous that they are aiming this ad towards men who are the primary audience for the Superbowl. Might make a few younger ones who might be in this position one day not to press so hard to end it and think about the baby first. :)
Most of the leadership of NOW is stuck back in the 1970’s. Feminism has passed them by a long time ago. Abortion is a sacrament in the church of NOW. It is their way of lashing out against their archenemy, patriarchy, which begins with the chief patriarch himself, God the Father. There is nothing that offends God more than the slaughter of infants on the altars of Ashtaroth, so killing unborn children is a rebuke of God the Father. But since men wrote the Bible, that too must be rejected. The hatred toward anything that might cast doubts upon abortion is evident in their fear of Tebow’s pro-life message. Logic does not apply to the leadership of NOW. It is all based psychological needs, not logic.
With all Hollywood at their disposal, surely NOW could spin something up if they wanted.
"Follow the money, honey"....the abortion mills provide the support to NOW.
This ad may get people thinking.
Thank you Impy.
