OK, so this video isn’t the Tim Tebow Super Bowl ad, mainly because that hasn’t been released yet. Instead, this is a bald man standing up for Tebow, his mom, CBS (which is due to air the ad), and the group bankrolling it.
The U.S. is such a divided country it’s hard to ever see it being united in the way it purports to be. Just one such example of a division is the pro-life/pro-choice divide, which supporters of both sides being very hard-line in their beliefs.
That’s why the Tim Tebow Super Bowl ad – which tells the story of Tebow’s mom being advised to have an abortion due to illness, rejecting the idea, and then going on to have a healthy son who is a champion college footballer eyeing up the NFL – is such a hot topic right now.
I don’t see there is such a fuss being made. Surely free speech means any group has the right to air their opinion in a commercial. I may not agree with the underlying message that seeks to outlaw abortion but I don’t see why the ad shouldn’t air.
After all, what’s stopping the pro-choice lobby airing a rival ad?
