Tebow ad Facebook page draws 160,000 signers and climbing 

That Facebook page put up by Americans United for Life and LifeNews.com to support the Super Bowl spot featuring Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow and his mother has drawn more than 160,000 supporters, and the signups are expected to total around 200,000 by the time the spot airs this Sunday during the showdown between the Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints.

The Tebow spot, which was produced and paid for by Focus on the Family, tells how doctors encouraged Tebow's mother, Pam, to abort him due to pregnancy complications while she and Tebow's father were serving as missionaries in the Phillipines. The Tebows opted to have Tim anyway, and he grew up to become one of the most successful college football quarterbacks of all time, winning the Heisman Trophy and leading his Florida Gators to a national championship in 2007.

Pro-abortion groups led by the National Organization for Women tried unsuccessfully last week to intimidate CBS into refusing to air the Tebow ad. You can read their case here. For more background information and analysis on the controversy, check out this Beltway Confidential post last week.

Tebow attended this morning's National Prayer Breakfast, and Fox News reporter Molly Hennenberg has additional details on that apearance and the response from pro-abortion groups to the Tebow ad.
