"The Most Effective Ambassador-Warrior For His Faith"

More

Amy Davidson is off-put by the Tim Tebow story:

The problem is the proselytizing use to which the story of his birth is being putthis is the Trig factor. There’s something gaudy about it. There will be a Super Bowl ad about the happy outcome that attends not listening to medical advice. Ignore your doctors, trust in God, and your child, too, can win a Heisman trophy. Will there be empathy in there for women who aren’t ready to risk their lives in order to be given a quarterback?

Jan Crawford, on the other hand, sees a disconnect:

According to the women’s rights groups, Pam Tebow shouldn’t be able to talk about her choice. They won’t even allow the discussion. And that shows just how much the issue of abortion has been taken out of public discourse. Because of the Supreme Court’s ruling in Roe v. Wade, you can’t even talk about it.

Palin, unsurprisingly, grabs the story with both arms. I have to say I see nothing wrong with it. But then it affirms my own position - I am pro-choice for pro-life. I believe that women should have the choice to abort in the first trimester, but I also believe that choosing life if you absolutely can is something worth celebrating.
