Could one of you folks please explain why this ad is anti woman. It isn't anti woman as far as I can see. It is simply a woman celebrating her choice, and no sane person would have a problem with that. It was her choice and it should be celebrated.

Well, if you don't get it you haven't looked beyond the surface. The ad is meant to be a lot more than the story of a woman's choice to choose to continue a pregnancy. It is meant to be a backlash at a woman's right to choose to have an abortion or not. The entire Tebow story is fishy anyway. Abortion was not legal in the country she was in at the time Tebow's mom was supposed to have made a "brave choice". The fact that the ad is the very first advocacy ad that CBS chose after refusing ads from progressive organizations, including a the United Church of Christ because it is accepting of gays, says a lot. And advertising to a primarily male audience about a woman's health issue is beyond the pale!

More about what it is about... It is sheer hypocrisy of CBS to refuse to accept "issue ads" from some groups that might not be to their liking, but then turn around and accept money to run an issue ad from a group they support. Marie, did you miss that point?
