Focus on the Family is finding unexpected defenders after getting behind a $2 million pro-life ad featuring college football super star Tim Tebow and his mom, Pam.NOW
(National Organization for Women), NARAL
Pro-Choice America and a handful of other supposed “women’s rights” groups have been waging a war against CBS, Focus on the Family and the Tebow family for what they think is an abhorrence on society—a woman talking about how she chose to have a baby when the doctors told her she should get an abortion. That offensive baby was, of course, Heisman winner Tim Tebow.
“Pro-choice” advocates are turning on their own as they disagree with their extreme members who view abortion as the only noble “choice.”"Tebow's Super Bowl ad isn't intolerant; its critics are"The Washington Post

“I'm pro-choice, and Tebow clearly is not. But based on what I've heard in the past week, I'll take his side against the group-think, elitism and condescension of the ‘National Organization of Fewer and Fewer Women All The Time’…
