To Show Support for the CBS Decision to Air the Tebow Ad During the Super Bowl, Groups to Hold Prayer Vigil and Witness in NYC on Tuesday, Feb. 2
February 2, 2010
NEW YORK, (christiansunite.com) -- The Christian Defense Coalition, Expectant Mother Care and Generation Life plan to gather outside of the CBS headquarters in New York City on Tuesday, February 2, at 12:15 P.M. to show their support for the CBS decision to air the Tim Tebow ad during the Super Bowl.
The location is 51 West 52nd Street (Corner of 6th Ave. and 52nd Street) in midtown Manhattan.
Participants will be praying for all the women who view the ad and are facing challenging pregnancies.
These groups join with hundreds of thousands of Americans who have signed petitions and joined on- line groups applauding the decision of CBS to air a pro-life ad featuring Tim Tebow and his mother Pam.
The pro-life organizations rip the National Organization for Women and other feminist groups who have shown disdain and open hostility toward women who chose to keep their children and refuse to have abortions. Their hysterical rants and anger over this ad of a woman simply sharing her own personal story to embrace life, shows these groups have no regard for either women or the concept of choice.
The pro-life organizations feel it is important to make a public show of support for CBS and thank them for not bowing to the pressure from fringe extremist groups that have little regard for women's rights or human rights.
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Washington, D.C. based Christian Defense Coalition, states:
"We applaud CBS for having the courage to televise this ad and not bow to the pressure from fringe extremist groups that have little regard for women's rights or human rights.
"Our main purpose will be to pray for the thousands of women who view the ad and are facing challenging pregnancies. Our hope is they will embrace life and social justice and make the same compassionate decision that Pam Tebow made.
"The hysterical response of the Now Organization of Women and other feminist groups to this ad show they are neither for choice or women."
Chris Slattery, Director of Expectant Mother Care in New York City, comments:
"Our organization works with women every day that face difficult and challenging pregnancies. In fact, we have saved 34,000 lives in the past 23 years.
"This life affirming ad by Pam and Tim Tebow brings a message of great hope and compassion to all women. Feminist anger over this ad supports what we have known about the so called pro-choice movement for years.
"That is, they have no regard for women or the dignity of life. Rather, they are consumed with an extremist value system that is both anti-women and anti- life."
Brandi Swindell, Director of Generation Life, in Boise Idaho adds:
"This is not really a Tim Tebow ad but a Pam Tebow ad. It is the story of a woman who made a powerful choice to embrace life and human rights.
"It is an ad celebrating the power of women and the choices they make.
"The fact that the National Organization for Women and other pro-choice groups have so viciously attacked this ad shows their true agenda. That agenda is hostile to women and the choices they make.
"I applaud CBS for televising this ad and am stunned that groups would so attack a woman for choosing to keep their child. It is hard to believe that pro-choice groups would be so harsh and hateful to a woman who made a choice for life and justice."
