What’s the controversy on Tim Tebow’s Super Bowl ad?

During Super Bowl 44, the Focus on the Family commercial featuring Philippine-born and 2007 Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow has finally aired. This commercial sparked some controversy between pro-life and pro-choice groups.

Check out the video:

Now I don’t see anything offending for pro-abortion groups based on the commercial. It just talks about how Tim was born despite her mom’s difficult condition during pregnancy. To understand the standpoint of the pro-abortion groups, we should know how the circumstances were during Tim’s birth.

Tim was born in Makati City, Philippines where her parents were serving as Christian missionaries. Tim’s mom suffered a life-threatening infection while pregnant with him. The fetus she was carrying at that time experienced a severe placental abruption and doctors recommended an abortion to protect her life but she declined and that’s why she calls Tim a “miracle baby”.
