Tim Tebow and His Mom Make Some Noise
Former University of Florida Quarterback Tim Tebow and his mother will take part in a 30-second Super Bowl Commercial that will have an anti-abortion message, according to an abcnews.com article. The article also said the commercial will tell the story of her 1987 pregnancy, where after getting ill during a mission trip to the Philippines, she ignored recommendations from doctor's to abort her fifth child and gave birth to Tim.
Evan Cohen, who hosts the Evan Cohen Show weekdays from 3:00 - 6:00pm on ESPN 760, said that everyone is entitled to their own opinion. But he also said that this was the wrong forum for this type of message.
I agree with Evan on both of these points. Everyone has the right to their own opinion. That is what makes everyone unique. I also think this is not the right place and time for this type of message. It is only going to cause more controversy.
Look out for this controversial commercial during the big game on Sunday which begins at 6:28pm.
