After hundreds of Newspaper and TV editorials, thousands of blogger posts, and even rival TV spots by Planned Parenthood, this is what it was all about—loving banter between a mother and her son? Of course it did have links to their entire story. Talk about overblown reaction from the Pro-Abort folks.
If you didn’t see the ‘controversial’ ads during the Super Bowl here’s one of the offending productions above. See it for yourself.
Powerline blog points out that the AP description doesn’t even come close to matching the real thing:
And a commercial by conservative Christian group Focus on the Family, perhaps the most anticipated ad of the night, hinted at a serious subject although it took a humorous tone too. Heisman winner Tim Tebow and his mother talk about her difficult pregnancy with him and how she was advised to end the pregnancy–implying an antiabortion message–but ended with Tebow tackling his mom and saying the family must be "tough."
Did Tim Tebow really talk with his mother about her difficult pregnancy in the commercial? No! That AP writer should be fired though the treatment probably does reflect AP’s usual slanted approach towards the news.
In another crazy approach to the commercial, now some writers are criticizing the ad for making fun of domestic violence—after all Tim tackles his own mother don’t you know. Will it ever stop? *Top
