Life Links 1/26/10

The National Organization, the Feminist Majority and other pro-choice groups are petitioning CBS to not run Focus on the Family's prolife Super Bowl ad featuring Tim Tebow and his mother Pam.

CBS doesn't appear to care.
CBS said it has approved the script for the 30-second ad and has given no indication that the protest would have an impact. A network spokesman, Dana McClintock, said CBS would ensure that any issue-oriented ad was "appropriate for air."
It's amazing what abortion advocates will say about an ad they've never even seen. NOW's Terry O'Neill can't seem to understand how ridiculous it is for here to make this statement.
Terry O'Neill, the president of the National Organization for Women, said she had respect for the private choices made by women such as Pam Tebow but condemned the planned ad as "extraordinarily offensive and demeaning."

"That's not being respectful of other people's lives," O'Neill said. "It is offensive to hold one way out as being a superior way over everybody else's."
Because NOW would never hold one view about anything out as being superior to the views of others.

The LA Times summarizes early testimony in Scott Roeder's trial.

A pregnant woman in Iowa has been arrested for "attempted feticide" after allegedly throwing herself down the stairs to kill her child because she was mad at her husband.
Police were called to a hospital late Tuesday after (Christine) Taylor reportedly told a nurse she intentionally fell down the stairs of her home because she wanted to end her pregnancy.
