Tell CBS execs & the NFL to Scrap Anti-Choice Super Bowl Ad

Opponents to reproductive freedom have rolled out their tired old playbook again -- and this time they've recruited Heisman Trophy Winner Tim Tebow and teamed up with CBS to push an anti-choice agenda during the Super Bowl.

Tell CBS executives and the NFL to scrap the ad!

CBS recently announced it would air an anti-choice ad during the big game, paid for by the notoriously intolerant and divisive Focus on the Family. The decision is a direct contradiction of CBS's own policy of banning advocacy ads. Over the past few years alone it's rejected commercials from organizations such as PETA, United Church of Christ and MoveOn, and even ones that carry only an "implicit" endorsement for a side in a public debate.

CBS executives say, "there is nothing political and controversial about it," but Focus on the Family has a long history of discriminating based on gender, sexual orientation, choice and religion.  Therefore, it's up to us to set the record straight.

The anti-choice, anti-tolerance message has no place during the Super Bowl.
