Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — The following are two cartoons that poke fun at the pro-abortion opposition to the Focus on the Family Super Bowl commercials featuring Pam Tebow and her son Tim Tebow.
The ads aired before and during the Super Bowl and reached 106 million people during the game and polls show half of Americans heard about Tebow’s non-abortion story prior to the game thanks to the mountains of free publicity and discussion.
Two polls have found Americans strongly support the pro-life commercial.
A Marist Poll published this past week showed 60 percent of Americans agreed with CBS’ decision to air the ad while just 30 percent said no and 10 percent were undecided.
And a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 45% of Americans who plan to watch Super Bowl XLIV agree with CBS decision to run a pro-life advertisement featuring Tebow during todays game.
Another 30 percent disagree with the decision to run the ad prepared by Focus on the Family and another 25 percent are unsure.
Focus on the family has prepared two ads — one version airing before the Super Bowl and one during the game — which tell the story of Tim Tebow’s birth. His mother, Pam Tebow, was advised by a doctor to consider an abortion because she was taking heavy medication after suffering from dysentery during a missions trip to the Philippines.
Pam Tebow refused and Tebow went on to become the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback who led the Florida Gators to become the NCAA college football national champions.
The Rasmussen poll found that 49% of Super Bowl watchers say they have followed news stories about the ad at least somewhat closely. But 50% say they haven’t followed the news about it closely, if at all.
Super Bowl viewers 30 to 49 are much more supportive of CBS allowing the commercial to than those in any other age group, according to Rasmussen; but, the Marist poll found younger Americans were the most supportive.
