Tim Tebow will be appearing in a 30-second Superbowl ad created by “Focus on the Family,” a pro-life group spending $2.5 million on their message. The commercial will tell the story about how Tebow’s mom refused to abort him when she contracted a near fatal disease while on a missions trip in the Philippines.
The highly anticipated ad has become a controversial issue amongst supporters and protesters of abortion. Tebow has yet to speak out about his decision to pursue the commercial and stand behind his fate.
$2.5 million seems like an awful lot of money to spending on a Superbowl commercial about pro-life. We can all agree that they’ll be reaching the largest television audience of the year, but this issue might be a little bit out of place when it appears next to the SOBE lizards.
