The Women's Media Center is putting pressure on CBS to pull an ad for the Super Bowl featuring former University of Florida QB Tim Tebow and his mother, the Associated Press and the Los Angeles Times are reporting.
The ad, financed by Focus on the Family, indicates Tebow's mother was glad she didn't have an abortion when she found out she was pregnant with Tim.
Focus on the Family spokesman Gary Schneeberger said his group was "a little surprised" by the controversy the ad had drawn. "There's nothing political or controversial about it," he said.
Terry O'Neill, president of the National Organization for Women disagrees, saying the commercial is "not being respectful of other people's lives."
