Focus on the Family's decision to buy a Super Bowl ad

featuring Florida QB Tim Tebow and his mom has generated a gusher of publicity due largely to protests from pro-choice groups presuming the spot will push an anti-abortion agenda.

This extended segment from The O'Reilly Factor

is a prime example.

No surprise, then, that individuals and groups ideologically in-tune with Focus are trumpeting the commercial, too. Witness the clip above, created by the conservative American Policy Roundtable and featuring veteran Christian musician Phil Keaggy, as well as video testimony by Jay Riemersma, a Congressional candidate from Michigan. See it below.

Of course, neither the APR folks nor Rimersma have actually seen the ad. Imagine how much run Focus on the Family will get once it actually airs...
