I really did. I don't know if I didn't expect it to be on so early in the game, or just that I didn't know who she was, but I paid no attention to the Pam and Tim Tebow ad. Here's the one which actually aired during the game last night.
What was the fuss about?They didn't even mention the "a" word. I actually like the ad, and thought the unexpected bit of slapstick was great. Good job with the ad says the Traddy!
UPDATE: Apparently there is a buzz in the blogosphere that this ad was a waste of time and money. I don't know what the pro-life movement expected to see air during the Super Bowl. The ad was touching, funny, and directed the viewer where to get more information if they wanted it. The ad wasn't targeted at those already committed to the pro-life movement, as that WOULD be a waste of resources. It communicated a mother's joy at the life of her son, and the courageous choice she made to continue her pregnancy despite her doctors advice. The ad was inoffensive and frankly, spot-on target!
The pro-choicers, in screeching their defiance over the ad, have revealed that they are not pro-choice as much as they are, as I have said repeatedly, just pro-abortion. To them, pro-choice really means killing your baby. They want nothing to do with the women who choose to keep their baby. For them, there is no choice other than death.
Also, in a world of Tiger Woods and all these other punks in sports whose only concern is a paycheck, it is outstanding to see Tim Tebow take a stand on the right side of an issue.
So, to all the pro-lifers who got to see apro-life ad during the Superbowl but don't think it went far enough, give it time. We can win more converts to our side if we do it carefully, with tact and reason. Good job, Focus on the Family!
