The 2010 Super Bowl ads haven’t even aired yet, but one has already sparked a huge controversy. On February 7, 2010, CBS plans to airduring Super Bowl XLIV. The commercial, which is sponsored by Focus on the Family, is a personal testimony of how Tebow’s mother, Pam, risked her life in order to save her unborn child.
Pam was pregnant with Tim, her fifth child, during a mission trip in the Philippines. She became seriously ill, and the doctors suggested she have an abortion. Pam disregarded the advice of her doctors and later gave birth to a son, who went on to become a celebrated college football player and NFL prospect.
