“Planned Parenthood’s response to the Tebow family’s Super Bowl ad continues that organization’s history of deception. It features two African Americans, Planned Parenthood’s preferred target for abortion, talking about ‘respecting’ women’s choices without ever mentioning the ‘A’ word. Spare me. If abortion is supposed to be a choice that everyone respects, why can’t Planned Parenthood even allow the word to be spoken?”
— Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., commenting on Planned Parenthood’s response to the Tim Tebow Super Bowl ad.

NEW YORK, Feb. 1 /Christian Newswire/ — The Christian Defense Coalition, Expectant Mother Care and Generation Life plan to gather outside of the CBS headquarters in New York City on Tuesday, February 2, at 12:15 P.M. to show their support for the CBS decision to air the Tim Tebow ad during the Super Bowl.
The location is 51 West 52nd Street (Corner of 6th Ave. and 52nd Street) in midtown Manhattan.
Participants will be praying for all the women who view the ad and are facing challenging pregnancies.
These groups join with hundreds of thousands of Americans who have signed petitions and joined on-line groups applauding the decision of CBS to air a pro-life ad featuring Tim Tebow and his mother Pam.
The pro-life organizations rip the National Organization for Women and other feminist groups who have shown disdain and open hostility toward women who chose to keep their children and refuse to have abortions. Their hysterical rants and anger over this ad of a woman simply sharing her own personal story to embrace life, shows these groups have no regard for either women or the concept of choice.
The pro-life organizations feel it is important to make a public show of support for CBS and thank them for not bowing to the pressure from fringe extremist groups that have little regard for women’s rights or human rights.
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Washington, D.C. based Christian Defense Coalition, states:
“We applaud CBS for having the courage to televise this ad and not bow to the pressure from fringe extremist groups that have little regard for women’s rights or human rights.
“Our main purpose will be to pray for the thousands of women who view the ad and are facing challenging pregnancies. Our hope is they will embrace life and social justice and make the same compassionate decision that Pam Tebow made.
“The hysterical response of the Now Organization of Women and other feminist groups to this ad show they are neither for choice or women.”
Chris Slattery, Director of Expectant Mother Care in New York City, comments:
“Our organization works with women every day that face difficult and challenging pregnancies. In fact, we have saved 34,000 lives in the past 23 years.
“This life affirming ad by Pam and Tim Tebow brings a message of great hope and compassion to all women. Feminist anger over this ad supports what we have known about the so called pro-choice movement for years.
“That is, they have no regard for women or the dignity of life. Rather, they are consumed with an extremist value system that is both anti-women and anti-life.”
Brandi Swindell, Director of Generation Life, in Boise Idaho adds:
“This is not really a Tim Tebow ad but a Pam Tebow ad. It is the story of a woman who made a powerful choice to embrace life and human rights.
“It is an ad celebrating the power of women and the choices they make.
“The fact that the National Organization for Women and other pro-choice groups have so viciously attacked this ad shows their true agenda. That agenda is hostile to women and the choices they make.
“I applaud CBS for televising this ad and am stunned that groups would so attack a woman for choosing to keep their child. It is hard to believe that pro-choice groups would be so harsh and hateful to a woman who made a choice for life and justice.”

Much has been said already on the Tim Tebow ad that will air during the Super Bowl this year on CBS, so I’ll just point out one interesting quote from an ABC news article published today:
Karen Middlekauff, a UF law student and the president of Outlaw, an organization for College of Law LGBT students, said she believes that Tebow is still a representative of UF, and he has chosen to represent a viewpoint that shouldn’t be associated with the university.
What is the “viewpoint” Tebow is putting forth that “shouldn’t be associated with the university”? According to People Magazine:
The spot … is expected to tell the story of Pam Tebow, who became ill during her pregnancy with Tim but refused doctor recommendations to have an abortion.
Doctors recommend the death of a child in his mother’s womb, mother refuses advice and with faith and hope goes forth with the pregnancy, child grows up to be a strong, bold leader respected everywhere. Hmmm… this is not what an LGBT leader wants her university to be associated with? What exactly is hateful or wrong with this ad? This is bizarre.
A new campaign from homosexual activists to counter California’s Prop 8 is coming out with a series of commercials aimed at normalizing the public perception of gay couples and gay families, and promoting the legalization of gay marriage. The campaign is called GetToKnowUsFirst.org, their website declares:
In the wake of California’s passage of Proposition 8, a group of gay and lesbian families are taking to the airwaves with five 30-second Public Service Announcements (PSAs) that are airing on daytime and prime time television throughout the state.
They ran in urban and rural markets on broadcast and cable channels during the Presidential Inauguration and will continue through the spring. Their purpose is to capture the hearts and minds of people who do not understand why marriage is so important to us.
Marriage promotes families. Support marriage equality Get to know us first.
The following is one of the commercials (the rest can be found here) , note the prominence of church, prayer, and family in the ad: [Link to Video]
They are currently raising money to buy ad time during this year’s Super Bowl:
We successfully ran our ads on broadcast and cable television in 42 of California’s 58 counties before, during and after the Presidential Inauguration on January 20, 2009. These images of happy gay and lesbian families are new for many viewers and our work has just begun.
Next stop? The Super Bowl! Every dollar we collect will go to purchase ads during the most viewed sports event of the year (Sunday, February 1, 2009), replicating our regional DMA media buy strategy. No doubt, our PSAs will be the topic of many a water cooler conversation. I am willing to believe that, stacked up against the Cheetos, Fritos and Pepsi ads, ours will stand out as remarkable!
Homosexual propaganda, depicting the wonderful family life of gay couples with children, aired during the Super Bowl? It’s coming friends, whether or not this particular campaign is able to obtain the money it needs this year, it’s coming.
Violence among homosexual partners is two to three times more common than among married heterosexual couples. Homosexual partnerships are significantly more prone to dissolution than heterosexual marriages with the average homosexual relationship lasting only two to three years. Homosexual men and women are reported to be inordinately promiscuous involving serial sex partners, even within what are loosely-termed “committed relationships.” Individuals who practice a homosexual lifestyle are more likely than heterosexuals to experience mental illness, substance abuse,suicidal tendencies, and shortened life spans. Although some would claim that these dysfunctions are a result of societal pressures in America, the same dysfunctions exist at inordinately high levels among homosexuals in cultures were the practice is more widely accepted. Children reared in homosexual households are more likely to experience sexual confusion, practice homosexual behavior, and engage in sexual experimentation. Adolescents and young adults who adopt the homosexual lifestyle, like their adult counterparts, are at increased risk of mental health problems, including major depression, anxiety disorder, conduct disorder, substance dependence, and especially suicidal ideation and suicide attempts.
Given the current body of research, the American College of Pediatricians believes it is inappropriate, potentially hazardous to children, and dangerously irresponsible to change the age-old prohibition on homosexual parenting, whether by adoption, foster care, or by reproductive manipulation. This position is rooted in the best available science.
Homosexual activists are boldly proclaiming that they want to change society, and because the facts concerning homosexuality and homosexual parenting are not on their side, they will continue to appeal to people’s emotions to support their case. It is in a child’s best interest to be raised by both a mother and a father, that simple truth needs to be trumpeted loud and clear, especially as the public starts to really consider these questions. As Dr. Brown has stated elsewhere, “The truth will triumph!”
