GAINSVILLE, FL – One of college football’s most celebrated figures is quickly dropping on the popularity polls.
Tim Tebow’s last month certainly has not gone according to his script. Losing the national title to Alabama, giving less than stellar performances for scouts, and now the controversy concerning his upcoming pro-life Super Bowl ad only adds to the bumps in the road.
It comes as no surprise that Tebow is as religious as they come. He wears his religion on his sleeve and he came to be known for wearing bible passages on his eye black. Two national championships and one Heisman trophy have quickly disappeared from the football legend’s view. He’s been mired in a less than positive view by the public over the last month.
Focus on the Family, the group that financed the commercial, wanted to highlight Pam Tebow’s decision to give birth to Tim despite a doctor’s recommendations to do otherwise. Groups such as Planned Parenthood, who advocate pro-choice, have come out in full force against the ad. “Tebow’s story was compelling, but every woman must be able to make important medical decisions for herself and her family,” said Planned Parenthood’s president Cecile Richards.
We must wait on the edge of our seats till the ad airs this Super Bowl. Until then, Planned Parenthood has released a counter video including former professional athletes Al Joyner and Sean James. Check it out.
