Planned Parenthood Responds to Anti-Choice Super Bowl Ad
Former professional football player Sean James and Olympic gold medalist Al Joyner are featured in a new pro-choice ad by Planned Parenthood. The ad launches a counterattack against Focus on the Family's controversial anti-abortion ad featuring Tim Tebow, scheduled to air on CBS during the Super Bowl.
The ad, despite featuring two dudes, is unabashedly pro-woman. The message essentially boils down to this: "We are men. We are not going to tell you what to do with your own bodies. Please don't listen to that Tebow guy." And you know what? That's pretty awesome.
If only this ad could air during the Super Bowl. Unlike the Tebow ad, which sounds calculated to play on one's emotions, this encourages rational thought and responsibility. Not a bad message to send to the young women of our nation.
