The Tim Tebow Superbowl Ad is yet to be aired on Superbowl but it is now receiving a big disapproval from women's groups who think that the ad is that the spot pro-life ad, an advocacy ad and is "inappropriate for Super Sunday."
So what's wrong with the ad? The 30-second ad will show Tim Tebow and his mother Pam, they will share a personal story that focuses on the theme "Celebrate Family, Celebrate Life." The women's groups that are against the ad sees it as an anti-abortion message. Pam Tebow was pregnant with Tim when she became ill and was advised by doctors to abort the child she was carrying. Pam ignored the doctors' warnings and gave birth to Tim Tebow, now a top notch former Florida Gators quarterback and NFL prospect.
The Women's Media Center has this to say about the ad:
"By offering one of the most coveted advertising spots of the year to an anti-equality, anti-choice, homophobic organization, CBS is aligning itself with a political stance that will damage its reputation, alienate viewers, and discourage consumers from supporting its shows and advertisers.
Here's what Tebow has to say:
“I know some people won’t agree with it, but I think they can at least respect that I stand up for what I believe”
