CBS has agreed to air-- and, according to recent reports, has helped put together--an anti-abortion ad during this Sunday's Super Bowl featuring University of Florida star quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow. The ad, funded by the conservative Christian group Focus on the Family, includes Tebow and his mother, Pam Tebow, encouraging pregnant women to continue their pregnancies as she did. Critics, such as women's and gay rights groups, note that CBS is breaking precedent by airing the ad, as networks have generally avoided political advocacy during the Super Bowl in the past. Nevertheless, both Tim Tebow and CBS are standing behind their decision to promote Focus on the Family's message.
