Pro-choice is really pro-abort

Because ... why would pro-choice groups protest against the Tim Tebow pro-life ad that's going to debut on Super Bowl Sunday? Why should they want to yank out the ad when in fact it talks about the choice that Tim's mother made, of carrying him full term despite the advice of her doctor in the Philippines?

Read Ms Datiles here:

When Justin Timberlake and Miley Cyrus praise Jesus as the Savior during nationally-broadcasted music awards programs, no one bats an eye. When professional athletes thank God after scoring a winning point, reporters offer them the microphone. But when football prodigy Tim Tebow decides to share on national TV the story of his mother’s heroic choice to give birth to him after receiving medical advice to have an abortion, he is attacked on all sides by pro-abortion groups, and a media frenzy ensues.

Tim Tebow’s story is all over the news. A winner of the Heisman Trophy, the former Florida Gaters quarterback is not only one of the most celebrated college football players of all time, but a pro-life, evangelical Christian who is proud that his mother chose life over abortion.

The harsh reaction of pro-abortion activist groups to the news that Focus on the Family bought a CBS Super Bowl ad featuring Tebow and his mother makes us think about the way the “right to choose” is portrayed by abortion advocates. It offers us a chance to reflect on our understanding of women’s rights, as well as the role of pro-life Christians who have a public presence.
Note of course that the Philippines enshrined the abortion ban in its constitution in 1987, most probably before Tim's mother got the shock of that advice. While it may have not been illegal for that doctor to give that advise, still, it would have been immoral.

The 1987 Philippine Constitution was ratified on February 2. Tim Tebow was born in August. If the doctor recommended abortion before February 2, then it would not have been illegal and the abortion itself would not have been illegal. Was the doctor trying to beat a deadline?
