Where Does NARAL Pro-Choice America Stand on the Tebow Commercial?

Posted: Updated:

I'm a big football fan, and I'm really looking forward to the Super Bowl. Spending time with family and friends, eating good food, maybe having a beer - you really can't beat it.

But this Super Bowl is going to be different.

Unfortunately, it looks like CBS is going ahead with Focus on the Family's ad.

The ad likely will focus on the story of Pam Tebow, the mother of University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow.

We've heard from a lot of supporters - asking where we stand on all of this - so we put together this short clip about our support for a woman's ability to make the choice that's right for her and her family:

Anti-choice politics have no place in the Super Bowl, so when the ad runs, focus on something else - anything else - besides Focus on the Family.

Go to www.ProChoiceAmerica.org/SuperBowl to find out how to use Facebook, MySpace or Twitter to tell the truth about Focus on the Family's agenda, and what you plan to focus on instead when the ad runs.

Me? I'm going to focus on... our great pro-choice activists!

As a proud progressive, I know I don't have to convince you that Focus on the Family wants to take choices away from women, including the choice to use birth control or access abortion if necessary.

So I wanted to leave you with a few facts about Focus on the Family ad in case your friends ask:

It's important that, as pro-choice Americans, we support every woman's ability to make the decisions that are best for her and her family - but Focus on the Family wants to take options away from women.

So please go to www.ProChoiceAmerica.org/SuperBowl and find out how you and your friends can tell the world that you disagree with Focus on the Family's agenda, and plan to focus on... something else when the ad airs.
