LKL WEB EXCLUSIVE: Super Bowl Ad Controversy

Posted: 07:00 PM ET

Jim Daly is president and CEO of Focus on the Family.  He will be our guest tonight on LKL to discuss the controversy surrounding the scheduled to air featuring quarterback Tim Tebow and his mother Pam.

What's So Controversial About Celebrating Family and Life?
By Jim Daly

The national media firestorm around our ad that’s going to air during the Super Bowl has been a little surprising to us here at Focus on the Family – especially since none of the groups and individuals criticizing it have actually seen the spot.

There are all kinds of assumptions and accusations about what the content of the commercial featuring Pam Tebow and her son, Tim, the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback, will be, and I can tell you pretty comfortably that they just aren’t accurate. There’s nothing political about the ad. Nothing shocking or divisive. Nothing “anti” anything. It’s just an inspiring story from the Tebows – as much as can be fit into 30 seconds, anyway – about celebrating family and celebrating life.

When did that become taboo for us to discuss in America?

I entered 2010 committed to expand the dialogue about important subjects like the sanctity of human life, and my hope is our commercial, and the national attention it’s received even before it’s aired, will move the bar in that direction. Bitterness, name-calling, political posturing, even accusing Pam Tebow of lying about her story, as some of our opponents have done – those are the weapons of culture war. We at Focus on the Family – unabashedly, unapologetically, unwaveringly pro-life – are more interested in cultural change. That’s the motivation behind our commercial – to get the country talking about the choices we have to make when faced with all variety of life challenges, not just unplanned pregnancies. And as one of only a handful of people in the country who has, of yet, seen the spot, I’m optimistic that’s exactly what it’s going to do.

When the estimated 100 million tuning into the big game really see what we’re saying, rather than what others are saying about us, I have every confidence they will be more inspired by love than mired in controversy. If that happens, pardon the pun, it will be a touchdown for life.

There is nothing wrong with advocating your side of the story or discussing the need for family life. I hope you have somewhere contained in your ad the large numbers of children who are in foster and group homes (orphanages) that would love to be placed in a warm and loving home.

Just as absolutely and vitally important to stress the need for assumed full life-time responsibility of the children we birth. This would include ability to support their every need both financially as well as emotionally!!!!

I also hope your ad does not contain any “shame based” innuendos for women who decide to have an abortion!

That being said! ((Enjoy the Game)) It should be a good one as I am looking forward to watching it this weekend!


Mike   February 1st, 2010 8:10 pm ET

The Saints are not a great team, some of the adds on television are not great commercials and some players are the not the greatest at their position. It is unlikely that Tebow will be a starting quaterback in the nfl over the long term. Clearly, he is not the greatest pocket quaterback, far from it, and it is possible that he may even change positions upon being drafted into the NFL.


Jill   February 1st, 2010 10:08 pm ET

I am a straight female, but I really don't understand the big deal. When I watch sports with my husband and 2 young children, there are always commercials for Viagara and Cialis. Is that appropriate for "family viewing"?


Judee   February 1st, 2010 10:09 pm ET

Why is okay to have beer commercials? How is any different if a parent has to explain to a youngster that alcohol is okay?


Paul   February 1st, 2010 10:13 pm ET

complete double standard by not airing gay dating site, and to say it is an "advocacy" commercial is ridiculous! It's not about gay marriage, it's about dating! Are you saying e-harmony/heterosexual commercials are advocacy for straight relationships?! And to say gays don't watch the superbowl is also ignorant! If there's any football game all the gays watch it is the superbowl!!


Patrick Farley   February 1st, 2010 10:16 pm ET

Almost every gaybar in America has the Superbowl on so to say its a bad market is crazy!


mark s.   February 1st, 2010 10:21 pm ET

not just no but .. NO NO NO !!!!! Maybe CBS should be able to tell this gay man how to run his company,,or how to run his house !!!! CBS has the right and should be no questions !!!! Period !!!!


Heather A Lockhart   February 1st, 2010 10:25 pm ET

Does Jim Daly choose life at the dinner table?


Bill   February 1st, 2010 10:25 pm ET

Pro Choice = Pro Murder. Too bad these Pro Murder people weren't aborted.


Adam   February 1st, 2010 10:27 pm ET

It seems as if cbs is choosing a side of the isle. I think they should keep it all out of the Super Bowl.
Cigarette adds are no longer allowed. So, Why are beer ads? Bith are legal to sell in America.


Ramon   February 1st, 2010 10:28 pm ET

CBS are total hypocrites to refuse to air a gay dating ad, yet air an anti-abortion ad! I would boycott CBS but they don't have any good shows anyway!


Steve Mueller   February 1st, 2010 10:28 pm ET

We hear plenty about the right for life...it's called a murder trial for a deranged right to lifer who shot a doctor in the head @ point blank range, at a church.


Terri   February 1st, 2010 10:29 pm ET

This man from "FOCUS" is truly offensive.
He's hiding the fact that the ad on Sunday's Superbowl just celebrates "life".
It's degrading to all women who have the right and choice to do that they desire with their body.

Roe vs Wade......I can't even believe this is back now as an issue. Palin should stay out of this as well.. ...She chose to keep her baby...allow other women to choose what they want.


Mary Reese   February 1st, 2010 10:29 pm ET

Hurrah for the CEO of Focus on the Family on their Tebow family ad. And look how many people will see this story on the Super Bowl. I'm grateful for CBS's willingness to run the ad. Ms. O'Neil's mind is very narrow. And for Larry to have these people on his show. Many people watch and this gets our message out to save the lives on the unborn.


calvin phillips   February 1st, 2010 10:30 pm ET

how is this ad disrespecting women? I support the ad, and hope that more pro life ads will run, it is a shame that because some people have a different view than them that somehow we hate someone, this is not true, just because we dont like what you are doing, does not mean that we dont like you,


Gloria R. Graves   February 1st, 2010 10:30 pm ET

I think it is wonderful that someone like Tebow and his Mom are telling the side of life that needs to be spoken about instead of always stressing abortion as a right. Women also have the right to hear about the value of human life also. I am so glad that Focus on the Family is sponsoring this ad. I applaud them!


Todd   February 1st, 2010 10:30 pm ET

Why don't we look that a woman has a choice...to engage in unprotected sex or not...not to use abortion as a contraceptive...and Teri stop with the personal attacks!


Katy M   February 1st, 2010 10:30 pm ET

Way to go Focus and CBS! Thank you CNN & Larry King for airing this interview. Why is the discussion about rights to murder even taking place in America? Being pro-life is being pro-women!!!! If the women who are pro-choice would realize that they are really pro-abortion thus pro-murder, then let them not balk at the evening news when children are killed in drive-by shootings. There is no difference except to say that abortion is a mother killing her child. That is much worse.


Ross   February 1st, 2010 10:31 pm ET

It's sad that standing up for life of our most defenseless citizens has somehow become an extreme viewpoint.


Ana Lewis   February 1st, 2010 10:31 pm ET

NO ONE SHOULD HAVE A PROBLEM BECAUSE WE ARE CELEBRATING ONE CHILD'S LIFE AND HIS MOTHER'S CHOICE TO HAVE HIM. IF MORE WOMEN HAD THE SUPPORT TEBOW'S MOTHER HAD, WE WOULD NOT BE HAUNTED TODAY BY PAST DECISIONS. THE COURAGE TO HAVE A CHILD IS MUCH MORE COURAGEOUS THAN TERMINATING A PREGNANCY....LET'S CELEBRATE THIS ONE!!! WE NEED REASONS TO CHEER ABOUT THESE DAYS.


Lisa   February 1st, 2010 10:31 pm ET

A woman's womb should be the safest place in the world for a baby.
We need more ads promoting this truth.


Mara   February 1st, 2010 10:32 pm ET

OMG I love me some Tim Tebow! Nice pix...


NotFromHere   February 1st, 2010 10:33 pm ET

I'm a Christian and applaud much of what Focus on the Family does, but they should not be airing anti-choice ads on the Super Bowl. If they love children so much and have $2 million lying around, why don't they promoted adoption, help unwed mothers and abused, unwanted children?


Katy M   February 1st, 2010 11:00 pm ET

You may want to check out the website at focusonthefamily.com. You will see how the FOTF initiative to adopt children out of foster care in three states so far has all but overwhelmed the social services in those states- Colorado especially. Also, the $$ for the ad did not come out of FOTF general fund... It was paid for by friends of the ministry who supported the idea for the ad.


rlc   February 1st, 2010 10:33 pm ET

I agree with Paul, A total double standard. I have very strong feelings on a woman's right to choose- especailly after trying to adopt a child. Why should some middle-aged lawmakers in Washington decide if a woman has the right to an abortion or if we ALL should we continue to pay for the health care, food, housing and other expenses of a woman who purposely got pregnant, perhaps takes drugs and drinks during her pregnancy, to take advantage of the system with abosultely no intention of raising her child?


Wanda Jones   February 1st, 2010 10:33 pm ET

Thank God for Focus on the Family and their pro-life views. Why would anybody choose death instead of life, especially when they have other choices. I would hate to stand before our creator with a pro-life stance. These children are precious to Him. This ad should not produce any controversy since it is in very good taste. If we could see what happens in an abortion, we would all be against it, surely.


liberal in Berkely CA   February 1st, 2010 10:33 pm ET

Larry, I loved at how at the end of the interview with abortion rights vs. anti-abortion, that you cut off the Pres of NOW from making a last comment. I guess we know you viewpoint. what about being a "objective" interviewer.


Adam   February 1st, 2010 10:33 pm ET

It's seems as though all who support the pro-life AD would be outraged if it were a pro-choice Ad.
Pro-Choicers should raise money for an AD in next years Superbowl and if it is rejected sue for discrimination. Trust me, It would be rejected.


Steve   February 1st, 2010 10:33 pm ET

Bill...Thank you for putting such a fine point on the hypocracy of your entire movement.


Pat   February 1st, 2010 10:34 pm ET

I believe the Focus on the Family and Tebow during the "Super" Sunday is perfectly okay. It is much more acceptable to me and my children than sitting and watching an ad on condoms and beer!
The objections are from liberals that their agenda should be accepted by everyone. Why not celebrate the fact that the great TTebow was not aborted.


Kendal Alvinson   February 1st, 2010 10:34 pm ET

Why are men trying to control women? Women are the individuals who raise our children. It's tiime men started thinking more about making this country a safer and better place to live. without killing those who may disagree with us. Women can take care of their issues and do not need men telling them what they can do and cannot do.


Jean   February 1st, 2010 10:35 pm ET

I think that if men could get pregnant, abortion would not be an issue at all.


Lisa   February 1st, 2010 10:35 pm ET

I'm simply astounded that abortion is still up for debate in America. Really? Wow. Get into the now people.


Henya, Ca   February 1st, 2010 10:35 pm ET

Why this guy is even talking he is a guy, most women that get abortion are Low income so if they have the baby than the government has to take care of it for the next 18 yr,
So no thanks Mr. I’m a women so don’t tell me what to do with my body,


kato   February 1st, 2010 10:35 pm ET

i think if gays should not be allowed to show their advertisement after paying their money, because of fear of children seeing. considering we have seen women kiss on grammy awards & a fabric softner with men smelling another mans tee-shirt. how are parents going to explain the abortion comercial, women have no right to decide for themselves? I don't know how to explain to my kids the abortion drama fairly. To me if your gay, be yourself. If your a woman who isn't ready, your decision is your own.


Connie   February 1st, 2010 10:35 pm ET

Abortionist say that a fetus is a blob of tissue. Can they take a blob of tissue, mix it together and nurture it for nine months and have a baby at the end of the nine month period???

Abortion is murder....PERIOD!!


Elizabeth   February 1st, 2010 10:36 pm ET

I am a 45 year old woman who had an abortion at age 16. Never a day in my life, not one, have I not regretted that choice. Please, let an ad like this save no only the life of many children, but the lives of many mothers to be as well.


Wendi S Leiber   February 1st, 2010 10:36 pm ET

Jim Daly's definition of "saving a life" is it's being born. i wonder if a woman left his baby on his doorstep for him to commit to his life to, if he'd feel the same way. Grow a womb, Jim, then talk to me about your choices.


Phyllis Moore   February 1st, 2010 10:36 pm ET

I think we are missing the point that Tiebow is getting prefenerral treatment into the pro football by using this ad.

How about all the other college footballs star who want name recognition at the super bowl? How many ads can we have?

Cheap shot as I see it in the day of really stiff competition for any job.

Nina Franzke   February 1st, 2010 10:36 pm ET

This is the Super Bowl not the Supreme court. Why are we even debating these issues? We should be worried about where we are going to watch the game and what we are going to eat and drink during the game. Like the World Series, the Kentucky Derby and the Olympics, the Superbowl is a small window in time that allows all of us to forget about the worries of the world. We don't need anti-abortion ads or any ad that provokes thought. We need mindless fluff for a couple of hours to forget about things for a while. Shame on CBS for being so greedy. I will not be watching the game this year because I need a break from all this BS.


Mickey Holcomb   February 1st, 2010 10:38 pm ET

This is a great opportunity to present the positive of choosing life. The only reason the pro-abortion people are agianst it is they don't want to show that there is a wonderful outcome when choosing life. Pro abortionists don't call themselfed Pro abortion, because it sounds awful, so they call it pro choice.......and the choice is abortion. Pro life is exactly that, pro life.


Nina Franzke   February 1st, 2010 10:38 pm ET

BTW...I am a Florida Alumni and I am greatly disappointed with Tim Tebow's decision.


Carl Reese   February 1st, 2010 10:38 pm ET

I am absolutely shocked by the stupidity of CBS with regard to Super Bowl Advertising! They reject a rather humorous ad about a gay dating service while allowing advertising by a notorious narrow-minded, hate-filled, bigoted organization like "Focus on the Family"??!! I've contacted my cable service provider demanding that they block all CBS channels and affiliates! Our Super Bowl Party will reflect our priorities...and they "ain't" Christian Fundamentalists!


Rosemarie   February 1st, 2010 10:39 pm ET

I'm thankful to God and Focus on the Family for bringing this ad to the Super Bowl, and thank God for people like Tim Tebow and his Mom for showing their beliefs and they will be blessed for it.........if we didn't have so many abortions then Americans wouldn't have to go to other countries for babies........God said " I knew you and formed you in your mothers womb" so women who choose abortion will have to answer to GOD someday for that ( unless they ask for forgiveness and turn their hearts to God).......God loves us all and will forgive the unforgivable..............Praise GOD, Tim Tebow, his Mom and Focus on the Family !!!!


Judith - Las Vegas   February 1st, 2010 10:40 pm ET

How can it possibly be offensive to tell a true story with a visiblly wonderful ending? I would be much more at ease discussing the values depicted by the lives of the Tebow family than explaining the sexual enhansement drug ads and why there are so many of them to my six-year-old grandson.


Patrick Byrne   February 1st, 2010 10:42 pm ET

Hey Jim what's your opinion about the gay ad


Pat   February 1st, 2010 10:43 pm ET

I just had to watch this episode.... I truly believe in gay marriage/ rights
I also am pro choice....BUT I have been a member of Focus on the Family for years....I have met many open minded and family forward people thru the site. BUT for this site to be turning to the far right in the way it has been lately.... shutting out so many voices...I will terminate
any correspondence from them tonight


Debby Brown   February 1st, 2010 10:44 pm ET

It is inappropriate for CBS to show a commercial from the Focus on the Family (an extreme right to life organization) to influence the public to be urged to "right to life/anti abortion" decisions, without also giving an organization like NOW (a pro-choice organization) to have a commercial. If Focus on the Family has the right, then the commercial by the gay dating service showing two gay men kissing, should not be denied. At this time NOW or some other women's rights organization, needs to step up and propose a commercial representing them. CBS is just opening the door for future commercials for Super Bowl to become a political "football."


Pammila   February 1st, 2010 10:44 pm ET

I am very upset that if I choose to watch the superbowl, that I will be subjected to anti-abortion ads! A woman has a right to free choice if she has a child or not. I feel mad that there are people trying to shame women to choose life. When it might not be the right choice for her. I don't expect to force a woman to carry to full term if she was raped, if she broke off a relationship and chooses to terminate the pregnancy. If a woman's health is at risk, I am not going to tell her that the baby's life is more important then her life. These people should be ashamed of themselves, they try to use religion to brow beat people to their views, shame on them!


Henya, Ca   February 1st, 2010 10:45 pm ET

Mr. King Please have respect for the President it’s not Obama it is President Obama, And in my opinion he is the best President we had that I can remember,


Tonja   February 1st, 2010 10:45 pm ET

Brave??Ms. Oneill- Is it really brave when a woman/girl comes into the ob/gyn office with her 5th pregnancy and 4 prior elective abortions? I would like to think that it would be ignorance, however, I believe it is more on the selfish and stupid line- definitely not bravery!
I do agree that FOTF can be somewhat extreme. Yet at the same time they are saving lives by educating women that are considering abortion. I am all for empowering us women- and education is necessary for that. I also feel that proper education and birth control would help end the majority of abortions each year.


Larry Flynn   February 1st, 2010 10:45 pm ET

You compare saving the unborn with sexual deviancy. It might explain why you have married so many times. You're quite bizarre.


Elizabeth   February 1st, 2010 10:45 pm ET

Here Here Judith. I can think of many far more offensive ads than one that celebrates life. Thank you Focus on the Family!


Wendi S Leiber   February 1st, 2010 10:46 pm ET

Jim Daly should take the over $2 million he spent on his ad and use it to educate, clothe, feed and insure each and every child he 'saves". He has no idea what becomes of these children or their mothers or siblings. Why not focus your energy on helping MEN BECOME BETTER FATHERS?


Katy M   February 1st, 2010 11:04 pm ET

Maybe you should read his auto-biography entitled "Finding Home". He knows a lot more than you appear to know.


John   February 1st, 2010 10:46 pm ET

anybody who pays for an add should be able to air that add if the network airing that add agrees. the argument that the gay dating service getting turned down is not valid. CBS would not allow Fox to air an add for one of their shows on CBS during the superbowl or any other time.


Bill   February 1st, 2010 10:46 pm ET

Why don't you call it what it is? IT'S PRO MURDER, not pro choice. What choice does the baby have?
Too bad Adam and Ramon weren't aborted.


sunny south florida   February 1st, 2010 10:46 pm ET

If I wanted to talk to my younger children about Pro Life or Pro Abortion it would not be a time to talk during the Super Bowl. THERE IS DEFINITELY A FEELING THAT THIS AD WILL HAVE AN UNDERTONE that women faced with making such decisions will only be making a wrong choice by not choosing the Pro Life route. This "Focus on the Family" group is one of the most extreme anti abortion groups out there. I just feel it's a huge disappointment for CBS to put our families in a position to watch and have to explain to our children our personal views on such issues during a time where we are watching a football game, a time where the family controversy should be what team we want to win not why someone should or should not have an abortion. CBS, bad choice, very bad choice, seems like a double standard, you will not air the commercial for the gay dating website but you will for anti-abortion groups? What does the future of Super Bowl hold for it's viewers: a time to watch advocacy group commercials? I enjoyed the Super Bowl commercials from the past, funny, entertaining, commercials BRINGING FAMILIES TOGETHER WITH LAUGHTER and NOT commercials TEARING FAMILIES / FRIENDS APART WITH DIFFERENCING VIEWS. Yes it's your choice CBS, just like it will be my choice to turn off the TV when your controversial commercials air .


Brenda Nichols   February 1st, 2010 10:49 pm ET

I am really tired of male spokespersons giving their opinions on anti-abortion on a public forum. I f men could get pregnant, there would abortion clinics on every corner.


Tracie   February 1st, 2010 10:49 pm ET

I think this is crazy. Why does any man have the right to comment. A surprise pregnancy will effect a woman's life forever meanwhile a man can move on with no baggage. Reach for his career goals, come home and continue a single mans life without sacrifice. It takes two but it seems the pressure and judgement by society is place on the women.


Cynthia Holliday   February 1st, 2010 10:49 pm ET

Terry McNeill sat there with a fake smile on her face and talked about aborting a life just like it was no big deal. She sounded almost like she WANTS woman to have abortions. She made the comment that she wouldn't want to have a serious conversation about abortion with her teenage daughter because she wanted her family to be brought together with watching the football game! Evidently the beer/sex commercials are ok. Talk about a screwed up perspective! My daughter and grandchild would be far more important than any football game, Super Bowl or not, it wouldn't matter!! I am sure that Terry has a very distorted view of how most woman want to be represented. She is part of the National Organization for Woman? She definately doesn't represent any of my morals or values, or love of life. Shame on her!! I don't know how she can live with herself. By the way, terminating a pregnancy is not "brave", it's COWARDLY!!!


Scottish Mama   February 1st, 2010 10:50 pm ET

Sounds like a personal advertisement to me. Sounds like Tim Tebow and mother need to see counselors. When did the funny NFL comercials become personal air your business junkets.
Mara your never gonna get it. Tebow won't have sex until he's married. So are they going to tell if he is celibate? They are telling his other personal business.
Gee I guess spending your billions on an almost aborted person is better than to save Hatian orphans.
You know know when some people have too much time and money on their hand.


Geneva Booth   February 1st, 2010 10:53 pm ET

Terry O'neal is a poor representative of the pro-choice movement, in one respect that is. Sarcasm, smirking, poking jibes at Jim Daly – no matter what side of the fence you are on, she looked anything but professional. To have or not to have a child is no laughing matter. On the other hand, since she believes so strongly in pro-choice she shouldn't mind my saying that just possibly her mother chose wrong!


Tracy   February 1st, 2010 10:54 pm ET

This issue is not about whether abortion is right or wrong, nor is about our religious views on abortion and/or homosexuality. It is about the rights we have in this country and ending discrimination. By not allowing a commercial for gay dating, CBS is discriminating against the LGBT population. We should be more concerned about ending discrimination against any population.


DR. GARY   February 1st, 2010 10:54 pm ET

First I must say. Larry you're show is the best. You are always so kind to those you interview.

We support life. I speak for 100 people that I know. We are pleased that Focus on the Family is using their funds for a good cause.

To keep silent is to be like America did when one crazy lady got prayer out of the school.


Lisanne McMurray   February 1st, 2010 10:54 pm ET

Even Norma McCorvey ("Jane Roe" of Roe v. Wade) has come to regret her history making decision and had a change of heart over the years. I can't help but wonder if Terry O'Neill has ever had an abortion. I have...twice... and these are my greatest regrets in life. Good choices need to be acknowledged in today's world of negative influences. What better time to make such an acknowledgement than when you have the attention of millions of Americans? I'm excited for Jim Daly and Focus on The Family and I'm thrilled that CBS would be bold enough to step up and give airtime to an ad that promotes the most basic, fundamental priviledge that a human being can ever recieve. Life should be celebrated....even during the Superbowl.


Cindy   February 1st, 2010 10:58 pm ET

Why does the gay organization want to run their first commercial (I assume their first; I have not seen them previously) on the Super Bowl. It seems there is some shock value planted in there. In all due respect, they could have chosen a forum much more conducive to their mission and it would have cost less money.


Ruth   February 1st, 2010 10:59 pm ET

If Focus on the Family is so concerned about aborttion, why don't they spend their $2,500,000 on teen pregnancy prevention programs? Then, abortion would not need to be an alternative. I think it's shameful to spend advertising dollars in programming that does not even reach the female target audience effficiently when so many American children are homeless and hungry. They've had my last contribution, so they better beef up their book, DVD and CD sales.


Katy M   February 1st, 2010 11:11 pm ET

Did you listen? The ad was paid for by friends of the ministry b/c they liked the idea and the ad. Take a fresh look at the Focus website so you can see that they are engaged in abstinence and helping foster children find permanent homes through a new adoption initiative began in 2009. There is so much to the ministry that people don't realize! Look and learn and give where God tells you to give.


REBECCA DAY   February 1st, 2010 10:59 pm ET

I FIND IT OFFENSIVE THAT CBS WOULD CHOOSE TO AIR THIS POLITICAL AD BUT NOT THE GAY AD. I WILL MAKE A POINT OF STAYING AWAY FROM CBS AND AFFILIATES. MR. DALY KNOWS HOW TRANSPARENT HIS MOTIVE REALLY IS. HE SHOULD TELL THE PUBLIC OF ALL THE ISSUES THEY PROMOTE. FOCUS CARES NOTHING ABOUT THE CHILDREN WHO ARE ABUSED, ABANDONED, HUNGRY,HOMELESS. WHAT IS FOCUS DOING FOR THOSE CHILDREN RUNAWAYS WHO FIND THEMSELVES ON THE STREET? PROSTITUTION, DRUGS. ABORTION IS LEGAL AND IT'S GOING TO STAY THAT WAY.


rlc   February 1st, 2010 11:01 pm ET

Rosemarie, I have news for you- and for all of the other narrow-minded, fundamentalists out there! People do NOT go to other countries for babies because of abortion. They go to other countries for adoptions because the system in the US is corrupt. Pregnant women have the ability to collect food stamps, get Medicare, have their rents, cell phones and cable TV paid by the adoptive parents and, then, can change their minds after delivery leaving the adoptive parents distraught and childless. Over five years ago, I thought that having fertitly treatments would be a waste of money since there were so many children out there who needed a good home. Obviously I was wrong. This is a very sad situation and the churches have been no help.


Steve 22   February 1st, 2010 11:05 pm ET

As a private company, CBS has a right to accept or decline any ad or company as a business decision. I think arguing a point on rumor and innuendo is ignorant. No one in the argument against the ad has seen it. Yet by arguing, they solidify CBS's decision because they are guaranteed more viewership to see what all the controversy is about. Why not wait until Monday for all the "puffery". In a world full of greed and pomposity, it's great to see what kind of man Tim Tebo is. His mom has every right to be proud of her decision.


Dale   February 1st, 2010 11:06 pm ET

thank you Jim Daly, Focus on the Family, the Tebow's and CBS for standing up and speaking the truth. The pro choice movement wants to make it out to be all about respect for women or accuse pro lifers of the lack thereof. The women (and their men) that make the decision to abort, many times later in life greatly regret their decision and many of them go through anxiety, depression and other emotional issues for life. Exactly how is that equated to respect for women? Abortion is not right anyway you slice it and the pro choice movement is hiding behind the "women's rights" line to look supportive of women, when in reality once a woman goes through with an abortion she gives up her right to ever change the fact that she has had an abortion or repair the damage done to her psyche. The only way to ever attain peace and forgiveness after the fact is through our Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ.

We humans fail to realize that we don't belong to ourselves but to the One God who made us. His laws are beyond the ages..beyond time and space. So let us respect LIFE and the DIGNITY of the human being, not because of what we as humans are capable of but because we are made in the image and likeness of GOD.


Scottish Mama   February 1st, 2010 11:20 pm ET

I heard the young man for the gay comercial say it was about a target audience, men.
What audience is the Focus group targeting, women so the women population on Superbowl is very small, maybe play it during sex in the city.


Patrick   February 1st, 2010 11:27 pm ET

The thing that isn't talked about, is at the time that Mrs Tebow claims to have made this decision to have Tim, she was living in the Philippines. At that time abortion was ILLEGAL there. So 1. her doctors probably didn't advise her to abort, and 2. she did not make a "choice" because there was NO choice to make.

In other words, this commercial is just another example of the far right bending the truth to fit their agenda


Brenda   February 1st, 2010 11:32 pm ET

Cant wait to see the ad, I'm sure it will be beautiful and encouraging! So appreciate an inspirational story on a superbowl evening... and celebrate the positive conversation it will create with our family.


Connie   February 1st, 2010 11:41 pm ET

Scottish Mama,
I am a woman and I like football and so do lots of women.
Actually a lot of people, including women, watch the game for the commercials.
Since your screen name is scottish "mama", I am wondering if one of your children was pregnant and came to you saying she was going to have an abortion I am wondering if you would think twice about encouraging her to have one since the baby would be a grandchild of yours. Would you think twice?


jefffromnyc   February 1st, 2010 11:42 pm ET

Actually, another one of Focus' programs is Orphan Care/ Adoption. I read that in Colorado, in one day, 250 children were adopted because of their efforts called Wait No More (that is what the website called it). I suppose if they ran an ad for that, the opposition would campaign as to why that was a bad idea. I understand that Dr. Dobson is leaving. Maybe Mr. Daly will bring a new feel to the conservative movement. Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson and James Dobson don't necessarily represent me well in my Christian beliefs.


Maria (OH)   February 1st, 2010 11:49 pm ET

Why are so many arguing over what will be an awesome commercial?Jim Daly – CONGRATS! You stayed calm and stated the facts tonight. While the so called pro-choice person (I could sense the evil) was rude and all about her point, which was clearly pro-abortion! Thanks for the great work you do to help those without a voice have LIFE! God's littlest angels. No weapon formed against you shall prosper when you protect his children. Many Blessings!


Connie   February 1st, 2010 11:56 pm ET

I bet "pro choice" people would be very upset if there were abortion clinics for dogs and cats, right?


Wendi S Leiber   February 2nd, 2010 12:22 am ET

what if one of the babies you save has an abortion someday, will u be sorry u saved it? Bill, you are basically wishing two alive persons to be dead. Worst kind of hypocrite.


Tom Joyce   February 2nd, 2010 12:26 am ET

I simply won't watch the game because of this.


John H   February 2nd, 2010 12:38 am ET

@Dodie...Great first comment. Fair and Balanced. Oh my! Have I been sipping the Kool Aid again? Couldn't find anything to disagree with here Dodie. I will also be enjoying the game Sunday. My team didn't make the playoffs so I rooting for the Saints. First time in. They deserve it. I am always for the underdog.

@ Jill...Couldn't agree with you more. I made essentially the same point under "Larry King Tonight." I can do without having Cialis and Viagra commercials et al foisted on my every night.


Dodie   February 2nd, 2010 1:07 am ET

@ John H

lol

There is always hope!!!!


Dave   February 2nd, 2010 1:11 am ET

I'd rather see a right to life add than two homosexuals doing a an abominable thing to each other. I wish they would stop destroying the name "gay." They tore up the name, they are trying to tear up what is normal. If everyone was homosexual... the human race would cease to exist. How wrong can wrong be? Put the breaks on this mental sickness. Treat it as it is... sick.


ZENmud   February 2nd, 2010 1:20 am ET

I've watched this long LK episode, including the current and previous debate (with a Conservative woman and James Carville)

Many have made the assertion that 'CBS is a company, and can make its own decisions regarding whose ads they choose to run.'

This is slightly incomplete. CBS, as NBC, or ABC or Fox, holds an FCC License, from We the People, and which is renewable based on proof of 'good behaviour', 'fairness', etc. WE can protest to the FCC when outrageous behaviour (The 'Nipple-Bowl'? Janet Jackson...) offends the public.

Commentator who recently stated that '3M for a gay dating net-network is probably a mistaken use of limited funds, BUT is already quite a coup mediatique...' (paraphrased).

So just remember CBS has a public duty... or risks aftereffects!

Johanne Smulders   February 2nd, 2010 1:27 am ET

I am grateful that the tide for actually keeping children safe is moving in the right direction....especially since the truth is to live an affirmed life by being responsible for our actions....God Bless Focus on the family.


June   February 2nd, 2010 1:28 am ET

What would you do if CNN were to broadcast the Super Bowl, not CBS? Would you refuse the commercial or not?


Sara   February 2nd, 2010 1:32 am ET

So lets see the ManCrunch ad on superbowl sunday! So funny! Focus on the Family should send their millions to Haiti, and really help people and families in need.


Christy   February 2nd, 2010 1:32 am ET

The National Organization for Women does NOT represent the view of most women in this country. I applaud CBS for their decision to air this ad! What can possibly be wrong with a message telling women, telling all of us, that choosing life is a good thing?


Maureen   February 2nd, 2010 1:33 am ET

After hearing of the decision to run this "Pro-life" advertisement, neither, I, nor many of the women I know, will turn on CBS and watch the Super Bowl. In fact, we will rethink watching any of the CBS shows. The right of choice is the law of the land and should remain so! Isn't it interesting how many men push this issue.....would it be so if they could become pregnant, instead of impregnating..I doubt it. They have no idea what a woman goes through when pregnant, by force, or if facing medical, financial, or emotional issues. The Super Bowl is no place for these types of ads. If they won't spark the gay rights questions, why should they spark the pro-life ones? This is a huge mistake by the network!


melissa Cox   February 2nd, 2010 1:33 am ET

Go Jim Daly! I thought he was great. And since nobody's seen the ad I think people should chill until there is something to talk about. I know the director/editor of the ad, and still haven't seen it. He's an amazing film maker, and I'm sure the ad will be a work of beauty,not riddled with politics and controversy–rather steeped with a beautiful story of an incredible athlete's journey. Can't wait to see it! Until then, let's discuss the ads we've actually seen.


Klev   February 2nd, 2010 1:33 am ET

I would like to know how many women that has post an opinion here, has had an option in the past to have an abortion, and what do you think now, if you did it.

Thanks


Garry Sagel   February 2nd, 2010 1:36 am ET

@NotFromHere

"If they love children so much and have $2 million lying around, why don't they promoted adoption, help unwed mothers and abused, unwanted children?"

You obviously know nothing about Focus on the Family. The money was put up by individuals. Focus is constantly airing radio programs promoting adoption, helping mothers, wed and unwed, and advocating for mistreated children. If you doubt me, call Focus tomorrow and request some CDs of said topics. The list will be so long, it will make your head swim. Thank you Jim Daly and Focus!


Denise from Ambler, PA   February 2nd, 2010 1:37 am ET

Larry,
I am Pro-Life and not opposed to the upcoming Super Bowl commercial. What I am opposed to is the continual onslaught of ED (erectial dysfunction) commercials that are aired all day long, 7 days a week, while young children are watching television. It is just outrageous and should be stopped.


Nathaniel   February 2nd, 2010 1:37 am ET

I normally enjoy the Super Bowl advertisements, but this year I'll be boycotting the first quarter so I don't have to watch the pro-life propaganda. After Larry King's broadcast announcing the ads placement, I'm sure many other people will do the same. I'm sure the other companies putting forth million of dollars to have ads next to this drivel are pleased to know that CBS' choice to air this is going to effect their revenue.


Kelly   February 2nd, 2010 1:42 am ET

To Terry – As a woman who had an abortion I can promise you my decision was NOT brave. It IS NOT something to celebrate. I live with the guilt of killing my child. If you have aborted a child of your own and celebrate this I am very sorry for you. I thank God daily for his forgivness and hope one day you too will see and understand the error of the message you are promoting. Women do not need to have the freedom to kill their unborn child in order to truely be free and empowered.


kevin   February 2nd, 2010 1:42 am ET

Abortion is murder clear and simple!! Do not use this law as a means of contraceptive. We have laws on the books in this nation that states we can't kill certain types of animals but can kill a child, does that make sense? Murder is murder, don't let this continue!! I applaud CBS's stand on this issue and Focus on the families!!!!


Allison Sinclair   February 2nd, 2010 1:44 am ET

Wake up CBS! This station claims they want to do more for advocacy. BS, they won't allow a gay dating site to advertise,but they will allow Focus on Family to air their spot. Focus on Family has a hidden agenda, they have always been anti everything from abortion to gay issues and same sex marriage. This group uses deceptive practices.


JP Aucar   February 2nd, 2010 1:46 am ET

Like many some of you said, I don't see anything wrong with this AD when there are so many other ad out there that are worst. its not like the ad is tell you not to do something its just giving you some facts. there are ad for beer, viagra, other thing that you would say oh my god who did they put this on TV


NehemiYah   February 2nd, 2010 1:47 am ET

Terry O'Neill sounds like such a self-righteous hateful woman. I feel like she represented her organization terribly on Larry King. She hasn't even seen the commercial. And what a hypocrite. She claims she is for women's rights, but doesn't want a woman to talk about how glad she is for not having an abortion. If you don't believe like she believes she labels you as EVIL and denying women's rights. That is all a front...like Jim said, plenty of money is being made from abortions.

I thought Jim Daly represented his side of the debate well and didn't seem hateful at all.


Maureen   February 2nd, 2010 1:53 am ET

I try very hard to listen to both sides of any political debate. That said, where exactly does the Republican Party find all of these obnoxious, female political commentators they put forth? They sure don't attract intelligent women to their side of any issue, at least not in any significant numbers! If anything, they give women in general a bad name, and it starts with a capital "B".....just horrible! They don't discuss anything, they are just brash and rude, and try to monopolize all interviews. The Republicans must be pretty desperate, if that's how they have to approach presenting their side of things.


rex   February 2nd, 2010 2:31 am ET

Seems that this add will be encouraging woman to ignore their doctor’s advice concerning their well being.

Sure, this one anecdote turned out well, but what about a similar scenario where both mother and fetus end up dying because of the decision to ignore their doctor? What about the surviving family that will now be without their mother?

The Tebow family took a gamble and got lucky. Others in similar situations may not be so lucky.


Robbie   February 2nd, 2010 2:32 am ET

While I fully respect Pam Tebow's personal choice and am glad it resulted in a happy ending, I do not respect Focus on the Family's long-stated agenda to overturn Roe v. Wade and outlaw abortion. In addition, I am saddened at their attempts (in the name of Christ) to demonize women who make a different personal choice. Other women with high-risk pregnancies, who know that their lives or the lives of their fetuses are at risk, should be given the same opportunity as Pam Tebow to make their own personal choice, a concept Focus on the Family actively opposes.


Miriam Dye   February 2nd, 2010 2:33 am ET

Terry promotes respect for all women.

It's unfortunate that Focus on the Family only respects one type of woman. By retelling and celebrating the story of a woman who chose to ignore medical advice and pursue a risky pregnancy, it celebrates a woman who "made the right decision" in FOF's eyes. If FOF was celebrating life, they might also provide equal air time to a woman who tells her story of choosing to follow medical advice and terminate a dangerous pregnancy so that she could continue her life. FOF does not appreciate that type of woman, so it chooses to eliminate that voice.

If Focus on the Family was genuinely focused on families, it would celebrate all families, those who are gay, those who choose to have children, those who don't. Instead, FOF silences and shames some families, and praises others.

Jim Daly's message is rooted in exclusion and elitism. It is unChristian.

CBS' partnership with FOF, and discrimination against the United Church of Christ and Man Crunch, puts it in bed with Jim Daly. *cringe*


John   February 2nd, 2010 3:37 am ET

I think Ms. Terry O'Neil should do every woman in the United States a favor and take out and ad on television showing an ultra-sound of a doctor performing an abortion. After all isn't she the one that says women should be fully informed. Maybe Larry King and CNN would do it for free. Anderson Cooper has no problem putting on television every night the tragedy of a natural disaster. Let's show the human disaster that abortion doctors and spineless presidents are causing in the United States. I wonder if Lincoln would have taken this long to free the slaves? Let's get it real America. The inalienable right to life is no longer protected in our society because of abortion. No wonder doctors no longer are required to take the hypocratic oath. Pray the rosary for the conversion of our fake Catholic representatives in Congress and the Senate


wydan   February 2nd, 2010 4:47 am ET

I'm thinking if he was playing in the Superbowl it would be relavent. I don't see why they have to bring religion into it. It is a personal decision. There is a time and place for this subject and the Superbowl is neither.


Jessica   February 2nd, 2010 5:27 am ET

What is the big DARN deal??? If you don't want to watch it then turn it at the time it is being aired, if you do then keep it there, come on America, there is definately too many ads about beer, sexual satisfaction products and tabacco, now tell me how you explain that to your kids?? Now you want to complain about a pro choice ad, and saying its a religious ad, so what, this is supposed to be a free country! So what if CBS denied the gay ad, that's their decision, we have a right to make our own decision! Hurray for CBS, stand your ground, do what you feel is right!


Arnie Falvo   February 2nd, 2010 6:22 am ET

Wish we could have equal but opposing point of view about how wonderful abortions would have been to eliminate the tragic rise of HItler, Stalin, etc, etc etc to the world stage!


Christine   February 2nd, 2010 7:01 am ET

Social intelligence is the ability to manage society and to act wisely in human relations.

CBS made a sound business decision regarding the Super Bowl ads based on what its target audience would consider obscene or profane programming.

The FCC has stringent rules broadcasting entities must follow. When defining 'obscene or profane' CBS not only looks to its legal team, but to their audience. IF the majority of their audience finds certain ads or programming offensive, then they would have to comply. IT is the public that determines much of what airs.

For example, some foreign television news shows run graphic photos and images on war, so you may see more bloody and dismembered bodies in news broadcasts. In the U.S., however, there is a limit to what broadcasters air and journalists print. Why? Because the majority of the viewers or readers would find the material offensive. Content is ultimately driven by viewership or readership.

In relationship to CBS running the dating ad, their decision was not based on morals or ethics. It was based on good business sense for the majority of their audience. The majority of Americans are not ready for that type of ad – yet. Given time, perhaps that sentiment will change – but for now the majority of Americans would find the ad offensive.

In closing – our society is becming more complex and our intellectual competences more sophisticated. We need to communicate on an intellectual level with each other, not an emotional level.

Thank you.


Patrick from BâIe   February 2nd, 2010 9:32 am ET

The new millenium 2000 is a milestone for conditions affecting the progressive evolution of man. Evolution goes in a different direction now. Things are changing; weather patterns, continental shifts, political, economic and social conditions, etc. More specifically, along with all these other changes, it represents more or less the beginning of individuals becoming responsibile, not only their own destiny, but the collective destiny of man. There has never been a time when the individual has had so much freedom and responsibility to affect the future and quality of life on the planet. Within this process there will emerge polarities and a middle way. The individual and to a lesser and lesser extent; governments, religions, sects, organizations, civil, political or economic models, etc., will have to learn through wisdom and trial and error to make choices that have to do with progressive evolution and to live with consequences when individual decisions are made from instincts and will forces not relevant to the future dignity and majesty of the loftiest form of life on the planet, one that has earned the freedom and the subsequent responsibility to insure progressive existence for itself and all lessor forms of life and substance, the human entelechy. Progressive minded indivduals, must use their freedom to acquire the necessary wisdom and make decisions that protect the harmony and balance that will be needed for the future. The guiding principle has to be one that willfully supports life in all its intricacies, recognizes the existence of the opposite forces but doesen't willfully employ them, and doesen't burn itself out in blurred detachment from the responsibility of the process.
With this overview in mind one can begin to tackle the political, social, economic and individual decisions affecting our time, and specifically the ones being considered on your most recent programs and these decisions in turn will determine the degree of harmony experienced by all in our future life on the planet.


eric   February 2nd, 2010 3:47 pm ET

Hi, I would just like to mention to the Focus on the Family group that if they would like to reduce abortions in this country, then they should support things that will help.
Gay marriage. Focus on the Family is against it, they should be for it. More married couples whom cannot have children will be more loving homes to adopt children into.
Sex education. Focus on the Family should be for sex ed with proper contraception use. This has been proven to reduce the number of teen pregnancies compared to abstinence.
They actually are a great group spreading good family values, they just have an uhealthy hypocritical narrow view of what good family values are.


Paul   February 2nd, 2010 4:48 pm ET

I'm pro-choice. A women has the CHOICE to have sex or stay abstinent. As soon as a women forfeits her right to stay abstinent, she has made her decision to give birth to the baby, if she were to become pregnant.


Fabiola   February 2nd, 2010 5:36 pm ET

it is a shame this add will be on Super Bowl Sunday. yes, let's celebrate life but for everyone, not only the privilege who can afford to support their kids no matter what their needs. Imagine this: a married working woman that needs to work in order to help her husband put a roof over their heads, food on the table and pay the bills, she gets pregnant and on top of that she is told her kid will be a special needs baby? who are we to dictate what can or what can't she do? will she be receiving a check from you or I if the baby does need special care? i dont' think so. Shame on CBS, i for one will not be watching the Super Bowl as much as i would love to see Brees win that ring.


Raffaele Zuccaro   February 2nd, 2010 5:38 pm ET

On the controversy with the Tim Tebow ad , to be played during the Super Bowl, I have a suggestion for Terry O'Neill, for her organization and others who support abortion rights!!!! Have them come up with 2 million, like Focus did, then play a video for their side of the ISSUE, say, for instance: Get their "STAR" abortion Doctor, performing an abortion, Inserting an instrument into a womens womb, 'Crushing" the fetuses head, or dismembering the baby, to extricate it from the mother- That will show just how opposed she and her gal friends just how "SICK" that Tim and his mother is- Yeah, pay to show how hard you Women work for their "freedom of CHOICE"?????


clarissa   February 2nd, 2010 6:00 pm ET

We haven't actually seen the commericial but It appears to be Pro Choice. Pam had the right to CHOOSE to have her baby AMA (against medical advice) . She had the right to make that CHOICE. It was the right CHOICE for her. I think if an unwed pregnant woman or any pregnant women watches this commericial (even though we haven't seen it) it should tell her to do what's right for her not what's suggested to her and definitely not what the laws of America has forced her to do.


ckelly   February 2nd, 2010 7:42 pm ET

Abortion is not the only choice a woman can make-unfortunately, many of the people who fight for a woman's "right to chose" and support pro choice programs forget this-I realize they want to make sure that women KNOW its their choice-but trust me most women do.

I find they come across as inhumane-even though that's the last thing they want to project. Its the lack of empathy , or recognition that an abortion actually psychologically harms women, years after they have chosen their abortion. -Its not like "choosing" a hair color; or a vacation destination.

And this is not a republican issue-many democrats are not in favor of abortion.-particularly late term abortion.

In Canada I have had the right as a teen to birth control with out my parents permission (free) as well as government paid for abortions-this has been available in Canada for 30 years- any woman to have an abortion, paid for by the province. Its very rare, for anyone to get into the whole pro-life/pro-choice debate anymore. In Catholic school I was taught about abstinence, Catholic/Christian family values, body development AND about birth control.

But there are definately limits Canadians accept-late term abortions. Its not a possibility here-unless its an emergency, at the hospital and the woman's life is in imminent danger-kind of like having to perform an emergency amputation. At some deep level of national consciousness-we know that late term pregnancy ending in abortion is not ONLY about "choice" per se, but about something deeper-this is life, a human being .In that same hospital where the early term abortion is preformed, premature infants live at 23 weeks.

I find it amazing that in my work and with my friends through life now into my 40's-women talk about their abortions in youth with a sense of shame or regret. I have had friends tell me-they wouldn't do it again, if given the choice. I am always very surprised and very empathetic when I hear these stories. These are not religious women, these are strong and successful women.

I am sure they accept their choices as part of a life's course-probably wouldn't change a thing..no one judges them. Its their business-BUT years later they talk about the lack of appropriate counselling; the loss and the lack of recognition for that loss-it hurts and scars still years later.

I think there is nothing wrong with an appropriate add for "right to life"- I also don't have a problem with Man Crunch having an "appropriate" ad run during the surperbowl.


bob   February 2nd, 2010 9:58 pm ET

why would a woman who deliberately becomes pregnant to milk the system for food and money ever get an abortion?


Teri in New Jersey   February 2nd, 2010 11:05 pm ET

I find it interesting that the doctor who was murdered was practically the only one in the country that performed this type of abortion. These abortions were very late term abortions. If those babies were born even earlier than that in a hospital everyone would be doing all they could to protect and nurture that premature baby. So this doctor is murdered. I believe what he practiced was wrong...immoral. Supposedly these are done if the life of the woman was in danger or carrying the baby was threatening the life of the "mother." What hospital that you know would refuse to do anything less than try to save both but if the baby's life was lost it wasn't in vane. Since when do so many women have their lives in such jeopardy that their only chance of survival would be to seek the services of this type of doctor? Nothing about this clinic makes any logical sense. I am a woman who has had an abortion when she was young and naive. I allowed myself to think that this would be an inconsequential act. It is not. No one should be allowed to persuade young women that this is an action that solve anything. It brings on a seperate set of issues. I don't appreciate a group of so called women's advocates defending this choice for all. Please put your energies into providing education and support for all. Men and Women. It takes two and then some.


bob   February 2nd, 2010 11:49 pm ET

is it just me or does Terry O'Neal look like she is on a high dose of benadril? Her constant smile looks like she has been caught red handed and is trying very hard not to lose it on national TV.

Those who really believe in pro choice would have no problem with this ad. Remember.. Focus on the Family actually worked with CBS to make the commercial acceptable. If pro choice then there should be no problem in presenting the other side of the coin.

Those who are pro-abotion and don't believe in choice (but rather hiding behind the vail of pro-choice) are finally exposed for what they really believe.

Those that are pro-choice need to look at who they support and make a choice themselves. Perhaps the real pro-choice should start their own organization.

another note:

Other organizations complain of rejection but made no effort to work with CBS to make commercial acceptable. Complaining to the media just got them 2 million worth of free publicity.

Focus on the Family got the coup d'etat. Not only did they pay 2$ million and their ad will air during the Super Bowl but they are also getting millions worth more of free publicity.

Whether you are pro choice/abortion/life. you have to admit this is brilliant.

DR. GARY   February 3rd, 2010 8:27 pm ET

I’m a Christian and I’m Pro Choice. Surprised? Here’s the way it works. You make the choice when you jump in the bed, floor or where ever. YOU MADE YOUR CHOICE! Right choices have consequences and WRONG choices have consequences. In other words you play you pay! Thou shall not kill. If you don’t think Abortion is murder you don’t understand life. You’re really a STUPID DUDE, I’M RIGHT!


DR. GARY   February 3rd, 2010 8:50 pm ET

You who are so anti God write some of the most stupid comments. If you don’t like the add, TURN THE STUPID TV OFF. You are so arrogant. They are paying for their add just like everyone else. You antichrist people are always down on the believers because we voice our opinion. and you can take yours on any given comment and it’s A-OK. Doesn’t work that way. THE REASON OUR NATION IS IN THE CONDITION THAT WE ARE IN TODAY IS BECAUSE BELIEVERS HAVE BEEN SO SHUT MOUTH. IT’S TIME THAT THE BELIEVERS WAKE UP, STAND UP AND SHOUT OUT TRUTH.
Based on God’s Word there is hope for our nation. We find the recipe in the Old Testament. Both Jew and Christian agree on this. The recipe is this.
II. Chronicles 7:14 "if My people who are called by My name (Those who believe in God.) will humble themselves, (Hard for people to do sometimes.) and pray and seek My face, (Obedient to God’s Word.) and turn from their wicked ways, (Many believers love their wickedness.) then I will hear from heaven, (God will hear us.) and will forgive their sin and heal their land. (Heal our nation from all the wickedness before it’s to late.)
15 "Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place. (God will hear the prayers if everyone who believes in God would do what these few verses tell us to do. The problem is.
Matthew 7: 21 "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
22 "Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?'
23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'
24 "Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:
25 "and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.
26 "But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand:
27 "and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall."
28 And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that the people were astonished at His teaching,
29 for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
I’m right, DIG!

15 "Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place. (God will hear the prayers if everyone who believes in God would do what these few verses tell us to do. The problem is.
Matthew 7: 21 "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
22 "Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?'
23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'
24 "Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:
25 "and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.
26 "But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand:
27 "and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall."
28 And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that the people were astonished at His teaching,
29 for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
I’m right, DIG!

I agree with Paul in, I’m pro-choice. A women has the CHOICE to have sex or stay abstinent. As soon as a women forfeits her right to stay abstinent, she has made her decision to give birth to the baby, if she were to become pregnant. AND THE MAN NEEDS TO KEEP HIS ZIPPER UP.

IT WAS SAID,On the controversy with the Tim Tebow ad , to be played during the Super Bowl, I have a suggestion for Terry O’Neill, for her organization and others who support abortion rights!!!! Have them come up with 2 million, like Focus did, then play a video for their side of the ISSUE, say, for instance: Get their “STAR” abortion Doctor, performing an abortion, Inserting an instrument into a womens womb, ‘Crushing” the fetuses head, or dismembering the baby, to extricate it from the mother- That will show just how opposed she and her gal friends just how “SICK” that Tim and his mother is- Yeah, pay to show how hard you Women work for their “freedom of CHOICE”?????
Perhaps our dear Mr. Obama would give them a bailout to do this.

If men don't like what women do with their bodies, as far as having freedom to choose abortion or not. Then the men should just get themselves FIXED!

You who are so anti God write some of the most stupid comments. If you don’t like the add, TURN THE STUPID TV OFF. You are so arrogant. They are paying for their add just like everyone else. You antichrist people are always down on the believers because we voice our opinion. and you can take yours on any given comment and it’s A-OK. Doesn’t work that way. THE REASON OUR NATION IS IN THE CONDITION THAT WE ARE IN TODAY IS BECAUSE BELIEVERS HAVE BEEN SO SHUT MOUTH. IT’S TIME THAT THE BELIEVERS WAKE UP, STAND UP AND SHOUT OUT TRUTH.
Based on God’s Word there is hope for our nation. We find the recipe in the Old Testament. Both Jew and Christian agree on this. The recipe is this.

Religion is really irrelevant in this matter, government law trumps religious beliefs in this matter.


Wondering...   February 4th, 2010 12:28 am ET

Why are we skirting around the real issues? Commercials, choices, Pro choice, pro life... Why are we not, instead pressing murder charges against those who are involved in taking the life of an innocent baby? If it's all right to terminate the life of a baby just 2 weeks in the womb, why not at 28 weeks? Why not 40 weeks? Why not a one-day old? Why not a 10 month old? What about if my child is now 2 years old? Can I terminate his life– do I not have that CHOICE to keep my child alive or not? What about if that child is a teenager??? Is it my choice to end his life? This is the danger of CHOICE. If I can make that choice at 2 weeks pregnant, why not allow me to make that same choice 2 years later??? Hopefully you are all outraged at this suggestion... I am outraged at the same suggestion by those who are pro-choice that think it is okay to make that choice to kill someone and to freely get away with it. Sickening.


lynne a   February 4th, 2010 3:34 pm ET

It's very interesting to me that all pro abortion minded people are alive. I would dare say that all people who are pro slavery ie human trafficking, etc are living a life of freedom. Those who are vulneralbe need someone to stand up for them regardless of the fact that the government of the USA says it's legal to terminate life in the womb. I would like to know where are all of the mournning centers for women who do mourn the loss of their children after an abortion? Some women do greive the loss of their children after they themselves have chosen an abortion. But, their grief is not addressed or basically ignored by society as a whole and if they do experience emotional pain later, it's never traced back to that event, they are prescribed pills and ignored. Doesn't make sense to me. Glad to be alive and glad to help the ones in the womb acheive life as well.


DR. GARY   February 4th, 2010 3:35 pm ET

Connie, Connie, you said, "You quote 2nd Chronicles 7:14 (above) Well, why don't you use God's name...It is JEHOVAH!? In most Blbles you can find Jehovah @ Psalms 83:18."
You are quoting form, KJV, I was quoting from NKJV. NIV, God, NASB, God. Most Bible literate people who know God’s Word know that God is God. Exodus 3:14 And God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM." And He said, "Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, 'I AM has sent me to you.'"
15 Moreover God said to Moses, "Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: 'The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is My memorial to all generations.' Many more Scriptures call God, God and not Jehovah. The word, God is used, 4,396 in the Bible. Jehovah is used only, 4 times in the KJV. Not even in any of the above translations I mentioned above.

JEHOVAH (Jeh hoh' vuh) English transliteration of Hebrew text's current reading of divine name Yahweh. Hebrew text, however, represents scribe's efforts to prevent people from pronouncing the divine name by combining consonants of Yahweh and vowels of Hebrew word adonai ("Lord") so readers would pronounce adonai rather than risk blasphemy by improperly pronouncing divine name. See God; Lord; Yahweh.

Bless you. I pray your eyes will be opened to Scriptures like John 3: 16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
17 "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
AND
Acts 16: 16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
17 "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
You are the Apple of God’s Eye. He loves you very much.


Carisa   February 4th, 2010 4:25 pm ET

The other day when this topic was discussed on Larry Kind live the woman's rights activist made a comment. She said that she didn't want to have to discuss this topic with her daughter. Has she ever watched the super bowl?! I would rather talk about families then why we shouldn't flaunt our body like Danica Patrick does in the Go Daddy commercials. I think she might be fighting the wrong battle.

She mentions that focus on the family makes woman feel bad for choosing to have abortions. I'm not sure that she really knows what she's talking about. I think most Christian organizations would nurture a woman after having an abortion just as much as they would nurture a single mom who made a tough decision to have a child. This is America, let both sides be fare and voice their opinion and let people make their own decisions. But I think this woman's right group might want to get someone on their team that makes a better argument.

As for the gay dating commercials, I'm not really sure what the big deal is. The service is available for people so I guess I'm just not sure why people care if they advertise. If your against it that's just a great opportunity to have another discussion with your kids. And if you don't like it, turn it off. It does seem a little like a double standard. However, with that being said it should be the networks decision. Let's not take away the "right to choose". Pun intended.


Connie   February 4th, 2010 4:49 pm ET

Dr. Gary:

Can you post your e-mail address please. I need to communicate via e-mail, not this forum.
thanks,
Connie


Carrie   February 4th, 2010 5:01 pm ET

Ok let me get this straight... it's okay to show beer and bare bodies for our families to see, but not okay to show a man whose mother chose to preserve his life instead of end it?

I am a Christian and am pro-life. We need to be teaching abstinence education. It is the only sure proof way to not get pregnant with a child you don't want. This will help with the overflow of children needing to be adopted. This would also help with the number of dependence on government assistance.

If women aborted every baby the doctors suggested be aborted because they "thought" would be handicapped, we would be without some really great people.

This issue DOES involve men. They should have a say in whether THEIR child lives or is murdered.

Ultimately the choice is a woman's, however most women will tell you that is a choice they regret.


DR. GARY   February 4th, 2010 5:15 pm ET

Larry will not allow that. Sorry. Thousands would then have our email addresses.


Michael   February 5th, 2010 5:21 pm ET

Well as usual, the liberal left is as ignorant of the facts and lacking in tolerance for other viewpoints, as they always are. Quickly (I hope!), let me dispell some of the insipid rumors I've seen here:
1) The money for the ad came from private donors, outside of Focus. Not one penny of their own limited resources was spent.
2) Homosexuality and abortion are TWO DIFFERENT SUBJECTS! Let's try and keep that straight. (Pardon the pun!)
3)Focus on the Family spends millions of dollars and hundreds of hours each year, supporting and counseling women who have chosen to parent their babies. They also have services to aid women in adopting out their infants, as well. All without accepting ONE SINGLE DOLLAR of federal funds, unlike Planned Parenthood, who takes millions in taxpayer money every year to facilitate the brutal killing of over 1 MILLION BABIES annually.
That's just three inaccuracies I chose to address here. There are
more, but space is limited.
God bless!


Carisa   February 5th, 2010 5:54 pm ET

Good point Michael- I do find it interesting that planed parenthood takes federal dollars and has so much to say about the private donations that focus on the family receives. I would think that in itself is a clue that more American's are supportive of focus on the family because they are giving their own money.

Michael   February 5th, 2010 7:30 pm ET

Marina-
BTW...the earth is not "overpopulated," as you assume. Cerrtain countries are yes, but not the entire planet. Another BTW... so-called "overpopulation" is not the cause of "hunger, anger, wars, etc.," it is our sin nature, passed on to us through Adam and Eve. Hunger is the result of greed. Anger stems from many different causes. War generally results from oppression or aggression. These problems have nothing to do with how many people there are, but what kind of people they are. "For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God." None of this though, is a good enough reason to kill an innocent baby. If it was, than the genocide in Darfur would be totally acceptable, right?
God bless!


Carisa   February 5th, 2010 8:14 pm ET

Marina, this discussion started because someone is defending the right for women to make a choice, an educated choice. In order to make an educated choice you need to both sides. This discussion is about the commercial and if it should be aired. Women should make the choice to be educated. How can you talk about education if you are not supporting the right to educate on both sides of any and all issues. It's good to teach children about family and abstinence if not to teach them about pregnancy but HPV and other potentially deadly STD's. It's just smart to talk about other options.

You talk about animals and how animals are the only species that don't have the right to choice. Animals are also the only species that are not taught self control and the value of having one partner. They can do whatever they want when they want. Animals would not be a good reference when talking about choice, sexual partners or babies.

Sorry Marina but you might want to come up with some new material to make your point if you actually want people to listen and understand your point of view. Like you said it’s about educating people and making sure their informed, not making them feel bad for their beliefs.

P.S. I'm a middle of road person but would never ever be able to have an abortion myself. I don't believe in making choices for others and I do know that using abortion as a form of birth control is sick and wrong.


marina   February 5th, 2010 10:29 pm ET

Of course abortion is not good and it is an extreme measure.
But any birth control method is not 100%, so if an accident happened
NOBODY could force the woman to have or not to have the baby.
Only the woman with her family can decide this problem!
And it’s absolutely their choice!
About commerticial – it is better to see both sides approximately in even proportions, but I didn't see any commertial about the other side with remainding about responsobility: if you have a baby – you must
provide goog life for this kid!


bob   February 6th, 2010 5:12 pm ET

marina,

you are right and that is why we have free choice. However, to make a decision one needs to have all the facts whether it is choosing a job or making an investment to name a few. The prochoice camp does not give all of the facts so how can a woman make an informed decision? Is there any video of an actual abortion? No because it is so gruesome that most women would CHOOSE not to have one, and when pro lifers choice gruesome pictures and videos the pro choosers are all up in arms and talk about it being evil. Are they saying that the pictures and videos are fake? Why do they get upset? Why do they get upset about this commercial?

Perhaps we Christians are not any better then the pro-choosers. We as they want to enforce our opinion and values on others. Pro-choice did not start out as pro-choice. It started out as pro-abortion. It changed to pro-choice as a marketing scheme to get more people on their side of the camp and it is working. (what do you think the majority would support.. pro-abortion or pro-choice).

Perhaps the pro-lifers should do something similar.. change from a platform of pro-life to a platform of pro-education. With pro-education you can make sure that a woman is well informed before she makes a decision.

Pammila   February 6th, 2010 10:55 pm ET

There is a difference from being educated on both sides of the issue, and just being subjected to propaganda by the other side. Like they are trying to brain wash you into following their view in the matter.

The pro life group, don't know how to stop at just educating, they have to be insulting in making their point and get graphic and vulgar.

I lost respect for that group a long time ago, and I won't be changing my mind about them anytime soon.


Pammila   February 7th, 2010 11:11 am ET

Instead of fighting about this subject, people should really be getting together to solve the problem.

Right now as it stands:

* The religious community don't believe in birth control.
* If a teenager gets pregnant the family will not allow them to put the child up for adoption.
* The woman ends up stuck on public aid.
* A person who is not of good character to raise children sometimes resulting in abuse.

We could really fix the problem:

* If schools were allowed to teach sex education early to all the kids.
* Health Departments were allowed to give out free birth control.
* Adoption was encouraged more for woman that were fit to carry full term.

I still believe that even if we change these things, abortion would still be needed in these circumstances:

* Rape
* Incest
* Risk to mothers life.

Besides when you suppress woman's rights to free choice, .it causes these problems.

* Hidden pregnancies, therefore the mother is not getting prenatal treatment.
* Emotional distress, such as panic, and helplessness. May even lead to suicide.

So really how is that ever an advantage to the pro life groups, to know they bare responsibility for loosing both the mother and the baby.

It is the closed mindedness of the religious groups that think it has to be 100% their way, but not face responsibility for the consequences of their actions.

There are these religious family clinics that pressure teens and women into keeping their baby. How do they know for sure that that is a good idea. What says that that mother does not later suffer post par-tum depression which results in the murder of her children. I know these cases are far and in between, but there is a good number that just end up neglecting them, or mistreat them. They are stuck feeling like they have to keep them and raise them, even when it is not in the best interest for the mother or the child.

I know what I am talking about, my mother pawned me off on my grandparents and when she was forced to take me, she just stood by while I was abused by her husband. I was eventually removed, but not until after 2 years of abuse. I grew up with emotional damage because of it, and I can say there has been days that I thought of suicide. I might of been better off if I was just not born.

Here is some food for thought. The Mormon religion believes that up until a certain age a child is without sin, and if that child for some reason dies before that time their soul just goes back to heaven. That they will wait until another host body is born to carry their soul. I am not religious but there you have it. Plus their are the groups that believe in reincarnation. I think the American Indians look at it as if your body dies, your soul just blends in with the spirits of the earth. That it is all one system working together.

No one should force a woman to live with life alerting mistakes or abuse causing pregnancy. It is ultimately up to each woman how they handle their situation. You can't force your will on others, it is just cruel.


DR GARY   February 7th, 2010 5:08 pm ET

Pammila, Good logic. I say since Abortion is legalized I attended a conference in Newark Ohio where they were trying to have a bill that once a person reached a certain age (in 70’s), birth defects, retardation etc. that the family would have no choice. That person would be put down like an animal. Logically, sounds like the right thing to do perhaps with a person of your thinking. But this group of people cost us, billions of dollars a year in, nursing homes, medications, transpiration etc.. Just think. You would never have to worry about Medicare going bankrupt. Because there would be a cutoff age. Would that be right, God no!! But we could sure justify it because your days would be numbered on collecting. No man has the right to say who should live or die. Abortion or Euthanasia. I’m Pro Choice. Your choice is to jump in the bed or stay out of the bed. That’s where choice begins. That’s why we don’t need to spend tens of thousands of dollars on passing out condemns, birth control pills in the school. Just teach no sex outside of marriage. God’s design. Every decision we make in life has consequences.
I listened to a nurse who worked for one of the largest Abortion clinics in our nation. She told the doctor she could increase the business by doing certain things. And she did. She also told us they passed out condemns in the schools. She said we passed out the lowest quality we could get. We passed out the birth control pills. We knew that they were not mature enough to be consistent and take them. So we would get BIG BUSINESS. It really worked. Also she said, “If we can get a girl to come in for one Abortion 80+% will come for at least two more. How sad! She said I was getting six figure bonuses because the business grew so much. THANK GOD SHE SAW THE LIGHT GOT OUT OF THE BIG BUSINESS OF MURDERING THE UNBORN. Her story goes on. But MURDER IS WRONG AT EVERY LEVEL ACCEPT, PROTECTING OUR FAMILIES, WAR. BLESS YOU WHO READ.
I THANK GOD FOR AMERICA THAT WE STILL HAVE THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND THAT THE GOVERNMENT CAN NOT DO OUR THINKING. LET’S KEEP IT THAT WAY.


Pam   February 8th, 2010 3:18 am ET

This is America, where all have the right to, "Life, liberty, and the persuit of happiness." Where is the choice for the unborn child? The mother made her choice when she became pregnant, knowing it would be a possibility. Does that negate the baby's right to life? Or, the baby's right to choose?


bob   February 8th, 2010 11:07 am ET

"You shall not murder." Deuteronomy 5:17 (NIV Bible)
What is truth? This seems to be the question in the pro-life vs. pro-choice debate. We need to set aside our emotions and "rights" and determine the ONE TRUTH about abortion. Is abortion murder? If it is, then most civilized human beings would agree that it is wrong. Life begins at conception. So, terminating a pregnancy is murder.
People have turned "truth" into what they want it to be and then they wonder why there are so many children and youth who are confused about who they are and the difference between right and wrong. We need to wake up and seek God, our Creator, who loves us and sent His Son to save us from our sins. Read the Bible and there you will find TRUTH.
