ANALYSIS/OPINION:

After hearing all the fuss about the Tim Tebow Super Bowl commercial (“Old Guard feminists sound their thunder over Super Bowl ad,” Nation, Monday) I was surprised when viewing it to find that it was so mild and inoffensive. Never once was the dreaded A-word (abortion) even mentioned. It was just about the love between a mother and her son and a reminder that sometimes wonderful things come about because of sacrifice.

Of course, the radical feminists immediately condemned the violence in the commercial (a brief scene in which Tim tackles his mother) even though the comic violence portrayed was less than that found in a typical cartoon. This reminded me of Jesus’ description of those who would “strain at a gnat and swallow a camel” (Matthew 23:24). What about the real violence perpetuated daily against the truly innocent victims of abortion mills?

Meanwhile, studies are predicting that by 2020, there will be countries where 12 percent to 15 percent of the male population will be unable to find wives because government child-limitation policies and selective-sex abortions will have killed so many girls. Where are the protests regarding this lost generation of women and unloved men? Most of those involved in the abortion rights movement make the tobacco industry appear compassionate and honest by comparison.
