Okay..I've been watching the news and listening to the news all weekend. Much talk has centered around the "controversial" Tim Tebow ad.
The ad shows Tim's mom talking about her experience in choosing life and the obvious results of that choice.
Feminist liberal groups like NOW are up in arms, saying the ad is divisive and attacks a woman's right to choose. Whatever, they either can't afford their own ad or they really can't counter this one. What are they gonna do? To make an equally effective ad for their side they'd have to show women or a woman talking about how her choice to abort her child was awesome and she's so much better for it. Um....probably won't go over too well.
The thing that got me going was that all the "pundits" seem to be focusing on the wrong idea. Someone asked why show it during the Superbowl. The Superbowl is primarily a male audience. I say why not? Men make the decisions to abort or not, as well as the woman. Since when did a woman create a life on her own? Why shouldn't men be informed and able to "choose"? If they get to pony up the dough to do the deed than they should be demanding some say in the matter. The best question I heard was why not show it during the oscars? The host said, come on! No one watches the oscars! ;) That at least made me laugh.
One "news" show begins by talking about Tebow's Christianity. How's he's so great for talking about it and living it. Okay, wonderful. But again, you don't have to be Christian to be pro-life. This is not about religion. This is about life. A life. A baby. Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, Hindu, whatever..as HUMANS we should all be concerned about the life of an unborn child being snuffed out.
By taking the focus off the baby, the media, even those conservatives who probably don't realize what they are doing, are trivializing the entire issue. Perhaps it's just simply about a life. A child who may not have been here IS here. Because his mother(for whatever reason) chose not to have an abortion and the result is this wonderful human being, who by the way happens to be fabulous at football and not so hard on the eyes.
