Should CBS show Super Bowl ad featuring Tim Tebow and his mother?
The ad is being paid for by a group called Focus on the Family, and will star Tebow and his mother, who went against doctor’s advice and decided to keep Tim despite medical risks.
A national coalition of women's groups called on CBS on Monday to scrap its plan to broadcast the ad, which critics say is likely to convey an anti-abortion message.
"An ad that uses sports to divide rather than to unite has no place in the biggest national sports event of the year - an event designed to bring Americans together," said Jehmu Greene, president of the New York-based Women's Media Center.
CBS said it has approved the script for the 30-second ad and has given no indication that the protest would have an impact. A network spokesman, Dana McClintock, said CBS would ensure that any issue-oriented ad was "appropriate for air."
Tebow's response to the uproar: "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. I've always been very convicted of it (his views on abortion) because that's the reason I'm here, because my mom was a very courageous woman. So any way that I could help, I would do it."
We haven't seen the ad -- but will share it once we do -- but we'd like to know what you think. Should CBS broadcast the ad or is it too controversial?
