One Feminist Sees the Light

As many of you may know, a pro-life advertisement will be broadcast during the Super Bowl next Sunday, featuring University of Florida football star Tim Tebow and his mother, Pam. He's the Heisman Trophy winner who is famous for showing Scripture references in his under-eye face paint during nationally televised football games.

When Pam Tebow was pregnant with Tim, she was advised by her doctor to abort. She chose not to, and look what that then unborn child has become.

Much attention has been brought to the ad in advance of its airing due to the reaction of the gang from the National Organization for Women (NOW), who apparently think pro-life views should never be heard in America. They are demanding that CBS not show the ad during the game because it is too divisive!

Those kind of responses from the left have become routinely expected, unfortunately. Apparently the "ladies" at NOW just cannot see how silly and bigoted their actions look to normal people, even those who are not convinced pro-lifers. However, one pro-choice feminist, Sally Jenkins at the Washington Post (of all places), can see it. Here is what she said.
"I'll spit this out quick, before the armies of feminism try to gag me and strap electrodes to my forehead: Tim Tebow is one of the better things to happen to young women in some time. I realize this stance won't endear me to the "Dwindling Organizations of Ladies in Lockstep," otherwise known as DOLL, but I'll try to pick up the shards of my shattered feminist credentials and go on.

I'm pro-choice, and Tebow clearly is not. But based on what I've heard in the past week, I'll take his side against the group-think, elitism and condescension of the "National Organization of Fewer and Fewer Women All The Time." For one thing, Tebow seems smarter than they do.

Tebow's 30-second ad hasn't even run yet, but it already has provoked "The National Organization for Women Who Only Think Like Us" to reveal something important about themselves: They aren't actually "pro-choice" so much as they are pro-abortion. Pam Tebow has a genuine pro-choice story to tell. She got pregnant in 1987, post-Roe v. Wade, and while on a Christian mission in the Philippines, she contracted a tropical ailment. Doctors advised her the pregnancy could be dangerous, but she exercised her freedom of choice and now, 20-some years later, the outcome of that choice is her beauteous Heisman Trophy winner son, a chaste, proselytizing evangelical.

Pam Tebow and her son feel good enough about that choice to want to tell people about it. Only, NOW says they shouldn't be allowed to. Apparently NOW feels this commercial is an inappropriate message for America to see for 30 seconds, but women in bikinis selling beer is the right one. I would like to meet the genius at NOW who made that decision. On second thought, no, I wouldn't."

I tell you, folks, we are winning! More and more Americans are seeing the light.
