Did you hear about the 30-second ad that Focus on the Family plans to air on television both prior to, and during, the super bowl?
I just read about it recently at LifeNews and the Christian post.
Focus on the family has stated that they did not utilize any money from their general funds to finance this commercial but instead received donations specifically for this project. What caught my attention is that the young Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow will appear with his mother in this commercial.
As I've mentioned before, football was never my thing until I married an all out fan and now my two youngest sons play high school football. But Tim Tebow and his open love for Christ has captured the hearts of my entire family.
No one knows yet what exactly the ad will include but apparently it is a well known fact that Tebow’s mother refused to have an abortion while she was pregnant with him despite having suffered from amoebic dysentery. The drugs to treat that infection were thought by the treating doctors to have caused irreversible damage to her baby and the physicians advised her to have an abortion. Since Focus on the Family has long held a strong pro life stance, the assumption of many is that the ad will somehow contain a pro life statement.
Focus on the Family president and CEO, Jim Daily, said in a statement that the Tebow message comes at a good time because "Familes need to be inspired".
