F or the past three weeks or so leading to yesterday’s Super Bowl, the Philippines was often mentioned by columnists and writers in discussing the controversial ad about celebrated college-football quarterback Tim Tebow. A 30-second ad in the Super-Bowl TV coverage costs a million-dollars or more to air.


Here is a description of the said Tim-Tebow ad, as written by columnist David Gibson:


CBS' decision to reverse its previous policy barring advocacy ads to air the ad against abortion had sent Pam Tebow's story ricocheting around the Internet: how, as a Baptist missionary in the Philippines in 1987, she contracted amoebic dysentery while pregnant and was given drugs so powerful they caused a detached placenta and led doctors to forecast a stillborn baby or a child with terrible birth defects. The doctors reportedly counseled her to have an abortion that could save her life, but Pam Tebow refused. The result was Tim Tebow, superstar college football QB and pro-life poster child. -- David Gibson

Why it's a win for pro-life advocates


While the Philippines was not mentioned at all in the Super-Bowl ad, at least the Filipino homeland got free publicity in the weeks leading to the Big Game and, hopefully, in the coming days, as the said ad is dissected further by pundits. # # #
