Tim Tebow Super Bowl Commercial For Pro-Life Group Focus on Family

Pro-Life Super Bowl Ad Causes Confusion Not Controversy

After all the controversy, pro-life group Focus on the Family ran its Super Bowl ad yesterday. It stars crazy-successful college football player Tim Tebow and his mom Pam. When she was pregnant with him, she went against the urging of her doctors and chose not to abort him. Now she and her Evangelical husband believe Timmy is here to be a preacher, and playing football is not the end but a means to finding a platform.

Too bad the commercial is completely incoherent to anyone who doesn't know the backstory. It never says "abortion" or "pregnancy" or "choice." Instead, Pam Tebow speaks of her "miracle baby" and how many times she almost lost him. And then little Timmy, all grown-up, tackles her to the ground and they hug make up. And scene.
