Statement of Dr. Charmaine Yoest on airing of Tim Tebow’s Super Bowl ad

February 7, 2010

Statement of Americans United for Life Action President and CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest on the airing of Tim Tebow’s Super Bowl ad:

“This ad was funny, light-hearted, and had a positive message for everyone. The hate-filled reaction from pro-abortion groups reveals a radical abortion-at-any-cost agenda that is far out of step with the American people. Congratulations to Focus on the Family for inspiring us all in the face of extremism.”

I just think it’s funny how these pro-abortion people would rather the American people be exposed to commercials of like Paris Hilton washing a car in her bikini, than they would have the American people see the beautiful story of the Tebows.

Josh Roberson February 7, 2010 at 8:04 pm

I love how the ad made absolutely no mention of the word abortion, only showed the link to Focus on the Family. And yet these yahoos went off the deep end trying to keep it off the air… America is a sad place.

Stacey February 7, 2010 at 8:06 pm

I second that, Colin…I have been trying to get that point across all week. I don’t want to see alcohol and half-naked women either, I’d much rather watch the Tebow’s story:)

Gracia Sweeney Transom February 7, 2010 at 8:07 pm

Of course there is. These PP people and others like them make money on abortion — on promoting that there is a problem with having a baby. We can all count the multiple terrible ways in which they can earn revenue from the sale and promotion of abortion and it’s results. Anything that could possibly even just encourage families threatens their income. That is the reason for their attack. It would be wonderful if the public at large understood that these people run non-profit organizations granted tax-exempt status by our government and make millions of dollars on which they pay not tax. They pay no tax on their buildings, they pay no sales tax on the awful equiptment and products they buy to keep their murder going. It goes on and on. I know I’m preaching to the choir here, but until the American public really understands these things and becomes outraged by them, there will be no limitation on the activities of these organizations. They have the same privillages as churches and other organizations which do genuine good for their communities, our country, and the world.

Page McGaughey February 7, 2010 at 8:09 pm

I can’t believe this is the commercial that caused such a contoversy. it was just about a mother’s love and concern for her son. Do the adversaries have no heart! There wasn’t even any controversary terms, used; unless one considers family and love controversal! Great job Focus On The Family and the Tebows, and the pro-abortionist for the free publicity! May God be glorified!!!!

Carolyn February 7, 2010 at 8:10 pm

It went by so quickly, you had to really be paying attention to even realize what it was. I thought providing the link to FOTF meant that CBS has pulled its punches and opted not to show the whole ad.

Kevin February 7, 2010 at 8:11 pm

It was a great ad, and not one time she say anything about abortion or pro-life. It was Her story in a light hearted manner. I believe in pro-life. But as a Christian I believe God has given us All free-will and if a pregnant woman deems it necessary that she uses her free will to get an abortion then as a Christian I should be there for there for her both before and after. As a Christian I should not condemn nor condone someone who exercises free-will in this manner but I should still love them and hold them and tell them of God’s love and forgiveness. The one problem I have with both sides is it seems the movement on both side (pro-choice and pro-life) has forgotten the individual and the affects it has on the woman psychologically, emotionally, physically and spiritually.

The one thing I have learned through reading History is a government cannot legislate morality and when it has tried it has failed.

Sybil Ammons, Registered Nurse February 7, 2010 at 8:12 pm

Awesome commercial, All of those people including the liberal media who have made it such a huge controversy should be embarrassed. Keep it up Tim, you are God’s child and He is very proud of you and your mama.

Michael Daugherty February 7, 2010 at 8:13 pm

Well, we legislate against murder, and abortion is murder…so, yeah, THAT DOES WORK.

Kevin February 7, 2010 at 8:16 pm

Well Michael, right now it is ok to kill an embryo so in LEGAL TERMS a embryo does nto have rights. Again People miss the issue it is not about the abortion IT IS ABOUT CARING AND LOVING THOSE WHO DECIDE TO HAVE ONE and exercise FREE WILL. TO me thats the biggest issue.

Laya February 7, 2010 at 8:35 pm

Ummmm Kevin, as a Christian, you would believe that that embryo is an actual baby, and that God said He formed us in our mother’s womb, and where is the compassion for the baby who is being sucked out of his/her mom, or torn limb by limb, or has its brain sucked out? Why don’t you have compassion for him?

Pat Mesagno February 7, 2010 at 8:52 pm

Tim Tebow’s Ad for Pro-Life is a Great step in the Pro- Humanity direction. I am a true Believer of Pro- Life , not Abortion…….. & all of us Human Beings, who are made by God on earth, have an obligation to Him to protect all living Beings sent by Him. I commend Tim & his Mom for having taken up this challenge for Humanity & God’s people in the midst of all this world’s turmoil. I have raised 4 Children & now have 11 Grandchildren & I believe that they were given to us by God. We have a responsibility, because of this, to take care of & support His children….because he entrusted them to us to do so. Thank you again, Tim & your Mama for all your dedication to this special goal of “SAVING GOD’S CHILDREN”. Pat M.,Dunedin, Fl.

Kevin February 7, 2010 at 8:53 pm

You do not read anything. I SAID in “LEGAL TERMS”. Again the bigger issue is the person who is having the Abortion. PLease do not tell me ur a Christian that believes in Free Will, because if U did, then U would neither condone abortion (which I do not) nor condemn ( I don’t) the person who is having the ABortion. Instead If a person decides to have an abortion, it is my responsibility as a Christian to LOVE THAT PERSON NO MATTER WHAT and that GOD’S GRACE and MERCY can FORGIVE and COVER ANY SIN INCLUDING ABORTION. There is my compassion.

Patte February 7, 2010 at 9:12 pm

I am embarrassed for Focus on the Family & for the Tebows. That ad was a sickening squandering of resources. It gave no glory to God who has created human beings in His imagine & likeness nor did it give any honor to the pre-born child in the womb.

How hard would it have been for FoF to include “You shall not murder”? Those four little words would have spoken volumes while that ad said NOTHING.

Something is terribly, terribly wrong with FoF.

djg February 7, 2010 at 9:13 pm

I am pro-choice and firmly stand up for the Tebow family’s right to share their beliefs, just as I have the right to share my own. For all of you who are so steadfastly against abortion, how many of you have adopted a child that has been abused and neglected because it was never wanted in the first place? There are thousands of children in this situation as we speak–why aren’t you out there protecting them?

Kathy G February 7, 2010 at 9:13 pm

@ Carolyn, it was only a 30 sec. ad from the start. It was so light-hearted & a bit humorous, made me wondered if they re-did the ad. But credit CBS, from the start they were sticking with it. Bravo, it was a great ad!

Patte February 7, 2010 at 9:24 pm

Kevin, would you support a man who chose to exercise his free will to rape your mother? Would you be there for him before & after he raped her? Would you love the man who raped your mom and hold him and tell him of God’s love and forgiveness?

A rapist leaves his victim ALIVE. A person who murders an innocent child makes sure that her child is DEAD. Kevin, God has given us His commandments. They are written on our hearts & our conscience bears witness to the truth of them. When we shed innocent blood we violate God’s Law. God has prophesied in Revelation 21:8 that all murderers have their place in the lake which burns with fire & brimstone. How dare you SUPPORT a person as they willfully disobey the explicit command of Almighty God?

Kevin, you need to love God first. The Lord Jesus made it clear that to show your love for Him you must obey His commandments. (John 14:15) Don’t forget that the baby is your neighbor too. If you love someone, you don’t support the person who is going to murder them. When you truly love someone, you tell them the truth in Jesus Christ, which He has taught us has the power to set them FREE. Unless they repent, they will perish, Kevin. Here’s what biblical repentance is: http://www.cornerstoneorlando.org/pdfs/True%20Repentance%20Tract%20Contents.pdf

Laya February 7, 2010 at 9:25 pm

Kevin, just because it is LEGAL doesn’t make it right in God’s eyes. Yes, have compassion on the woman who has chosen to end her CHILD’S life because she is human, but if we don’t stand up for those who HAVE NO VOICE FOR THEMSELVES, then how far will it go? What if the Government made it legal to snuff out the grandparent who lives in your home and you care for because they are old, or your handicapped child because they are “useless”?? Since the parent is the legal guardian doesn’t that mean then that is their choice and they can kill their child?? And don’t say that all those scenerios can’t happen because what is right and what is wrong is redefined everyday.. It was legal in Rome to persecute and torture and kill Christians – DID THAT MAKE IT OK??????

proud2bchristian February 7, 2010 at 9:38 pm

Comment to DJG
Well DJG, my wife and I have adopted 4 special needs kids and there are many of us out here who have adopted. Don’t use that as a copout ;-)

Carol February 7, 2010 at 9:38 pm

How bout view it this way–The Lord, in His infinite love and compassion (knowing what will make us happy) says: “Don’t do it, don’t do it, it won’t make you happy.” The Adversary, on the other hand says, “Go ahead, it won’t matter, it won’t matter.” AFTER the WRONG CHOICE: Heavenly Father: “There’s a way, I still love you.” Adversary: “You have screwed up you’re damned.” That’s not saying that the Lord stops saying BEFORE that it’s wrong, or condemning us after. It does matter how we choose, and we need to speak the truth. The love comes before (No!) and after (You’re still loved, there’s a way). We can’t give up speaking the truth either before OR after.

Laya February 7, 2010 at 9:50 pm

djg, there are many of those people, you just don’t happen to know them – I know plenty

Patty February 7, 2010 at 9:54 pm

DJG,

I adopted two & they are the loves of my life.

Kevin February 7, 2010 at 9:55 pm

Thats exactly what I am saying, Carol. Laya, you are using a logical fallacy for argument called slippery slope. U cannot connect abortion to killing a living grandparent. There is no way you can make that jump. You apparently cannot read bewteen the lines. I ma saying in “legal terms”. Now you may assume what u wish but I will leave it at that. So Laya I guess you do not believe in Free Will and all those u use free will should be condemned becasue no one sin is bigger than the other all sins are equal. I would rather be friends with someon who has had an abortion and is working through it than a belligerent christian or a christian who acts completely against the word of God and gossips about others. I have had more friends that were Christian that treated me better than my so-called friends or church family.

I believe in free will which means choice, yet I am pro-life and I believe in GOD’s forgiveness for alll sins. For all have sinned and come short of the glory of GOD. Even htough we are under grace does that mean we can keep on sinning, No.

Laya February 7, 2010 at 9:56 pm

Patte, lets just praise God it was aired at all, CBS could have chosen to pull the whole thing after all the stink raised by NOW and NAGS. I did wonder if they had reshot it since it was so subtle, but noone has ever said that happened.

Kevin February 7, 2010 at 9:57 pm

that should read, “were not christians…..”

Brian February 7, 2010 at 10:01 pm

God may give us free will, but how does that make it okay to kill your baby? “Everything is permissible for me—but not everything is beneficial.” Who cares if it’s legal or not? The law of man doesn’t trump God who told us not to murder. Of course God forgives someone who has an abortion, if they repent, but how does that make it alright to do?

As far as legality, killing a fetus is in fact sometimes deemed murder by our judicial system. The double murder of Laci Peterson and her unborn baby would be the most well known.

Laya February 7, 2010 at 10:03 pm

Kevin, yes God has given you a free will to do whatever the h*ll you want to do, but it is our free will to NOT CONDONE those who go against HIS COMMANDMENTS and don’t follow his commission to LOVE GOD and LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR (as in unborn babies, elderly, handicapped) as yourself. Because you know what, soon and very soon, it WILL become legal to imprison and torture Christians and WHO WILL SPEAK UP FOR YOU?? (it happens all over the world RIGHT NOW) I hope all your non-Christian friends will be there for you then.

Judy Capistrant February 7, 2010 at 10:07 pm

It was a great ad. One comment that was made stated that as Christains we should be there before and after for someone who decides to use her free will for an aobtion and to not condemn them, either before or after…supporting them is true, if we have tried our very best to help them see that this is a child she is killing. We can not stand back and not try. By our baptism we are called to be apostles and spread Christ’s word, and His word is life for ALL. Those little ones should never be punished in such a terrible way, and no one should take a life that God has sent…

John February 7, 2010 at 10:23 pm

“The hate-filled reaction from pro-abortion groups reveals a radical abortion-at-any-cost agenda” demonstrates the author’s desire to stereotype the pro-choice movement. First, a reaction must occur after, and not simultaneous or previous to, an event. Secondly, the author infers an agenda for the opposition that is never stated nor implied by that movement – pro-choice is about allowing women to make the same difficult decisions as Tim’s mom did, instead of denying the choice based on idealogical reasons. I cannot support any “pro-life” agenda as long as it stereotypes the opposition as such a caricature of evil. Can we discuss this issue with civility? Or must you insist on vilifying everyone with a different opinion?

Kevin February 7, 2010 at 10:25 pm

Laya. Again youd did not read my posts I SAID I NEITHER CONDONE NOR CONDEMN.
My unchrisitans I would trust with my life over most of the Christians I have met. I am sure they will be, because GOD knows not many Christians have stood up for me or been there for me when I needed them most and when I was my lowest it was those unchristian friends that helped me out of some of my lowest points. Please do not patronize the people you do not know.

Judy, I completely agree with you that what I was trying to say without having to use two pages to say it. I thought people could read between the lines, I guess not. I 100 percent agree with giving the woman all the information she needs to make an informed decision and if she still wants to go through with it then it is my responsibility as a Christian to be there for her afterwards and love her unconditionally as God loves me. The one thing I will add is I do not know what someone has been through where she has come to reach that decision.

A friend of mine, before I met here, had an abortion because she was drugged and raped and the guy was pushing for to have an abortion. ANd she had already had 2 or three kids, she told she agonized for a month about the decision and knew she had a make choice quick and knew what she was doing. I asked her what if she would have had the child, she told me straight up she probably would have hated the kid and would not have loved the kid and probably mistreated it. Before making a judgment on someone get to know them. She is one of my best friends and someone I would trust my life with and if I had kids I would leave them in her care.

Yes I personally do not agree with abortion, but why don’t some of you get out and talk to people who have had an abortion and find out the circumstances instead of using a general blanket over everyone and judging them.

Kevin February 7, 2010 at 10:26 pm

I completely agree with you John. You are so right.

Brian February 7, 2010 at 10:28 pm

See, the pro-life movement is different than any other sort of ideological movement, which often are just trying to advance their own ideals or self-gain. But with abortion, it is a matter of our country allowing the murder of millions of babies. Don’t you see how that important that would be to stop? A woman can make the decision to have or not have a child many ways, not all of which include murdering the unwanted child and not all involve complete abstinence. I personally have never heard a good argument that it is not murder, and until I do I will do everything reasonable to stop this atrocity in America.

Laya February 7, 2010 at 10:37 pm

Kevin, that is a HORRIBLE situation your friend was in…I’m sure if you don’t have support, an abortion seems like the easy way out, just get rid of it. A lot of our suffering we bring upon ourselves when we don’t follow God’s laws. As far as your friends, I am really sorry that your “Christian” friends have not been there for you- God will deal with them if they are truly Christian. If you are on this earth long enough when the anti-Christ arrives on the scene and you are faced with the excruciating choice receiving the mark of the beast or suffering and dying because you chose Christ, I do hope your non-Christian friends are still sticking by you, and hopefully choose Christ because of your example. I pray we all make the right choice.

AM RN February 7, 2010 at 10:42 pm

Kevin, you are on a good track, as far as I am concerned. God did give us free-will, and all sin results in separation from God. Sins such as killing an unborn child are just as bad as cheating on a spouse or spreading false witness against someone or stealing. Killing an innocent child is equivalent to taking God’s name in vain. How many “Christians” have uttered curse words? Why are we not as up in arms about that as the killing of an innocent pre-born child? They have the same sentence if the sin is not repented of – death. We all make bad choices at times, and God still does His best to repair the broken relationship every time. He does not condemn us when we make a bad choice, the devil is the condemner.

What we need to do is help preserve each woman’s right to make a choice – an informed choice, not one that she has been given only partial information about and then pressured into making a decision that will benefit only one party. Two people lose when this happens – the mother and the baby. A woman experiencing a crisis pregnancy should be given written and verbal information about all her options – keeping the baby, giving the baby up for adoption, or abortion. The risks and benefits of each option should be carefully explained with no pressure in any one direction. Resources available for each option should be made available, so that the woman can find housing, food, education, clothing, and medical care should she need these resources to continue the pregnancy. An ultrasound should be done to confirm the gestational age of the baby and a copy given to the mother, along with the rest of the material. Then she should be allowed to consider all these options in the privacy of her own home for a few days. If she still chooses to have an abortion, then she should be referred to a clinic that follows all the emergency preparedness policies that every other outpatient surgery center is required to follow. If this policy were ever to be implemented, the number of abortions would likely to drop dramatically, which is why the pro-abortion groups would never support its’ implementation.

My personal experience with PP when I had my crisis pregnancy was pressure to abort the fetus, because it would “destroy my life” if I continued my pregnancy. Well, my life as I knew it WAS destroyed, but it was replaced with a life so much more enriched because I had a child in it. Now that child is a man, helping to defend the rights of all to make a choice, even if he does not support their choice. I do not agree with any choice that is made to end the life of a child, but I do support the right of every woman to make a choice regarding pregnancy, as long as she has been given ALL the information necessary to make an informed choice without pressure.

Brian February 7, 2010 at 10:44 pm

Being there to comfort someone is the best thing you can do after an abortion without question. But is allowing them to go through with it the best choice before?

But regardless of circumstances, when is it ever alright to murder a baby? No matter how many children you have, the circumstances of the pregnancy, etc, how does that justify murdering a child? Even if she would have mistreated it, does that make it ok to assume the child would rather be killed than be mistreated?

Loving everyone, especially those who have had an abortion, is definitely the christian choice. Refusing to condemn murder is not.

UPSET CHRISTIAN February 7, 2010 at 10:44 pm

@ Kevin: Y

Kevin February 7, 2010 at 10:47 pm

Laya, That is my hope and prayer also, that they will se my example and will want what I got. But unfortunately they have seen the same thign I have seen with some “Christians” the bickering, the belligernet attitude, the “i ma better than you” and yet still calom to be “Christian” it makes my witness harder thane ver, because I cannot disagree with them. The only thing I try to tell them and talk to them is you cannot judge people you have to read the word and follow the word not people. It is an uphill battle. I know the damages an abortion has on a person I have studied and researched it, I do not wish the affects on anyone. And at some point a woman who has an abortion will have PTSD and psychological, emotional, and physical affects. That is hwy I believe if we focus on these rather embryos or not, the movement would have much more impact. That is all I am trying ot get out focus on the consequences of the act of abortion rather than the act itself. I hope that makes sense.

Laya, I believe we are on the same page just are not quite communicating well enough :).

Tara D February 7, 2010 at 10:47 pm

John…I don’t know what you have read, seen and heard prior to today’s ad, but I have heard and seen and read the Planned Parenthood and Pro-choice supporters vilify and stereotype this ad, those who produced it, those who supported it, and those who were in it before even seeing any of it. This ad was about as nonjudgmental an ad shown all during the Super Bowl. And I find it so interesting that pro choice supporters think that we Football Junkies would all rather see the objectifying ads that are run every year rather than a family positive one…even the newscaster put it in perspective…Drew Brees holding his baby son in the middle of the Super Bowl Celebration, “…this is what it’s all about!” You made a blanket judgment on all of us based on one person’s statement, and judged the entire prolife movement yourself. I just want to celebrate a family moment with my 7 children, watching good football, and a positive message! And, yes, I want every child to have that opportunity.
DJG–funny, the government makes it easier to kill that child then to adopt one…I know…even with 7 of our own, we would gladly adopt to save a child.

UPSET CHRISTIAN February 7, 2010 at 11:16 pm

@Kevin:

You seem to be sort of confused on what being a Christian means in regard to abortion. I hope I can clarify some things for you. You said “as a Christian I believe God has given us free will”, but then you said a person can “excercise free will”, and then you said “I believe in free will.” You had it right the first time. You have the ability to CHOOSE. That is God giving you free will. You can’t “believe” in free will. Free will is a choice, not something to believe in. Second, you said we as Christian’s should “love another person no matter if they have chosen to abort a child or not”. I agree that we can not condemn the sinner because we ourselves are sinners. However, we can take action to make it illegal under the law to knowingly remove an embryo, fetus, unborn child, etc. from the womb. I believe that as as a Christian I am saved no matter what I do in this life. Does that mean that I should go and live a sinful life? No. God allows us the ability to choose. That doesn’t mean that we should choose the sinful road. That doesn’t mean that we should not be punished by law when we choose to break the law, such as the law against murder, and other crimes. God is a God of justice. He is 100% JUST. If someone murders someone else, should we forgive that person and have compassion for that person? Absolutely. Does that mean we agree with the Sin that they have committed? Does that mean we should set them free to be able to kill again? No. We feel that the action is against the law and therefore there are consequences. As Christians we need to speak for those unborn that cannot speak for themselves. Who are we as God’s creations, to choose to kill God’s pre born creations? We are not God. God is who chooses when to bring someone into the world and when to end their life. As a Human Being, I believe that there should be laws against killing a man, a woman, a child, and yes, even the unborn embryo, fetus, baby, or whatever word you want to put on it. An unborn life is still a LIFE. Once the egg is fertilized and it has the opportunity to become a fully realized human being, we as human beings should use our free will and CHOOSE to allow it the opportunity to be born. Being there for someone before they have an abortion means giving them wise council on how to avoid that choice and other alternatives. It doesn’t mean telling them that you are fine with whatever decision they make. We are called to do more than that in the Bible. Matthew 18:15-20 I pray that you will speak for God, and not for anyone else in the matter of abortion.

Joe Bruce February 7, 2010 at 11:24 pm

I LOVE THAT AD !!!!!

Praised be Jesus Christ! Now and forever!

And may God bless the Tebows for what they have done!

A L L E L U I A !!! That ad has made me so happy!

nell February 7, 2010 at 11:50 pm

Kevin, you are confused! Love the sinner hate the sin! No one is condemning the women who have had an abortion, it is those who push women into abortions like PP and NOW. WOMEN DESERVE BETTER THAN ABORTION!!!!

Stevie February 8, 2010 at 12:04 am

Keep spreading the message of God’s love Tim.

Burt February 8, 2010 at 12:54 am

Kevin: Two points.

First, I agree that we should love women before and after they have abortions. It’s good that you’re standing by that lady who had an abortion — she needs your support. A close relative of mine had an abortion when she was younger. I love her very much. Women are also victims of abortion, not just the unborn.

Second, while we should stand by and love the women who have had abortions — many in the pro-life movement do, in fact, support these women, like Rachel’s Vineyard and Silent No More — we must still recognize reality. There is no love without truth. Abortion kills a human being, a creature in God’s image, one for whom Jesus shed his blood. Free will means that we can freely choose good or evil. Killing a human being is evil. My relative, whom I love very much, chose evil with her free will. Recognizing this does not mean that I hate her. The more I love her, the more I will hate the sin, the cancer, that eats away at her soul. If she represses her guilt and stays in denial about it — if I help her do that — she will only fall deeper and deeper into the hole that she’s already in. She will dull, more and more, her sense of sin and her need for forgiveness.

We should love her, support her, and be there for her. Only God knows what her relationship with Him is. We should not judge her intentions or her status with God. While we aren’t judging those things, we should condemn sin, strongly and charitably, as Jesus showed us to do when He walked the planet. Not to do so would be to hide truth from them. And there is no love without truth.

Ashford February 8, 2010 at 1:52 am

Obama’s desire to repeal “Don’t ask, don’t tell” can actually help to fulfill the “days of Lot” (Luke 17, cf. Gen. 19), the fulfillment of which will hurry up the return of the Heavenly Commander-in-Chief who will make all things straight (pun intended)! Interesting Google articles include “Obama Supports Public Depravity,” “Separation of Raunch and State” and “David Letterman’s Hate Etc.”
For some dessert visit Yahoo and type in “Obama Avoids Bible Verses.”
PS – You’re invited to use these new pro-life slogans: “Unborn babies should have the right to keep and bear arms – and legs and ears and eyes etc.!” and “Unborn babies should have the same right to be born alive that abortionists had!”
PPS – Super Bowl suits me to a T – Tim Tebow!

Ceecee February 8, 2010 at 4:43 am

So now we know what all the fuss was about. So this is the ad that the hard core pro-aborts told us was scary, hate mongering, woman enslaving, dangerous, etc. etc. etc. Funny, I didn’t see anything that fit those definitions in this ad. Shows how stupid those hard core pro-aborts can be. Maybe if they would actually bother to look at an ad before passing judgment, they wouldn’t have egg on their faces right now.

If the National Organization for Women and the Feminist Majority paid as much attention to fighting human trafficking as they do to promoting abortion (and silencing opposition to abortion), maybe they would actually become a real women’s rights group that really sticks up for abused and oppressed women.

Hopefully at next year’s Super Bowl, Focus on the Family will do a longer ad, one that ends with the message to CHOOSE LIFE, and gives the phone number and internet addresses of where you can find some crisis pregnancy centers in your area. Hopefully the pro-death crowd will have accepted the fact that we have free speech in this country, and won’t be raising a stink over it. On the other hand, maybe it’s good that they raise a stink. It sure perks up people’s interest, and it’s free advertising too.

Jackie February 8, 2010 at 7:28 am

Thou shall not kill….that applies to any life…in or outside the womb. I am a Christian and support life. I am against abortion but do not HATE abortionist. Please don’t label me. I can choose to believe God’s word as being without error and powerful. I take God’s word literally. It saddens me when Christians get labeled as haters. That is the furthest description that we should have given to us.

If someone chooses to abort, would I love them anyway? Yes! I would be a hypocrite otherwise. My sins were forgiven. Now, if that person is or becomes a Christian, it is also my belief that they will realize that it is sinful to abort and confess that sin before God…not man. So, their sins will be forgiven, too.

If a young lady is raped and gets pregnant, she does have other options than abortion. She can give the baby up for adoption to people that are dying to have a child.

We are to love as Christ loved. I trust we do that.

P.S. For the record, I thought the commercial could have said more about Tebow’s life before birth and his mother’s decision to not abort. I don’t understand why HER free will/choice could not be aired.

How could anyone be “offended” by this uplifting story of life??? Congratulations to Focus on the Family and the Tebow family. Well done!

I for one am very happy to see such a faith based commercial. We Christians are put on the backburner way to much and it is time to state our rights! Believe it or not we do have the right to share our opinions as well. Great job Focus and Tebow’s.
