Sports vs. Abortion

If you have not heard yet. CBS has said that they will broadcast an anti Abortion ad( during the super bowl) about a story of Tim Tebow and how his mom was sick when she was pregnant with him. The doctor told her to have an abortion she denied it ,and then he was born. The problem is now that many pro choice advocates are demanding CBS to not air the ad. Now here is a what i would like to say first the ad has not been aired yet so how can we say if it is really all that controversial. My thinking is that organisation are aloud the freedom to air their belives wether you believe in it or not. It is freedom of speech. I think the real question is: will you change your mind just because of a 30 second ad. I think maybe. but i do say to those pro choice groups you can still put out your argument on tv too. One last note i do think that we should spend less time talking about something that you may or may not agree with during the super bowl more time on just enjoying the super bowl.

  1. The issue with the ad is that CBS has barred any political ads before (like moveon.org) and will not allow any counter-messaging from pro-choice groups. That is the outrage.

  2. It is very, VERY nice and refreshing to read someone with their head on straight when visiting Liblogs.

    Thanks for the great post.

  3. The question actually is whether the ad is based on lies which many people suspect.

  4. Apparently the ad is so positive and tasteful that the pro choicers are going to look stupid for opposing it.

  5. First of all America and Canada both enjoy freedom of speech. Secondly, both countries are also capalitalist. Is it possible that CBS has felt the economic crunch like the rest of us and is changing their policies to make a buck? both sides you should be able to have their views aired if they can pay the ticket price. That is exactly what happens during political elections.

  6. Check out Michael Coren's recent talk at Queen's University entitled "Abortion: Canada's National Shame"
