Washington D.C., Feb 2, 2010 / 04:51 am America/Denver (CNA).
Over 50,000 people have reportedly submitted comments to a website in support of college football star Tim Tebow’s appearance in a pro-life Super Bowl ad.
The Susan B. Anthony List set up the site BlockHardForTebow.com to show support for the ad, in which Tebow and his mother Pam discuss how Pam refused to abort Tebow despite a life-threatening infection.
“When someone this prominent is willing to put himself out there with a positive message about Life, we need to defend him,” the site says.
The website, launched Jan. 27, allows visitors to send personal comments of support to Tebow. It also hosts a short ESPN video about Tebow.
The ad, sponsored by Focus on the Family for broadcast on CBS, has drawn protest from the National Organization for Women (NOW) and other pro-abortion women’s groups.
