Sarah Palin Calls Out National Organization For Women Over Their Opposition To Pro-Life Super Bowl Ad

Posted by Gary P Jackson on January 27, 2010

This is pretty typical. Progressives sell their souls to the cause, nothing else matters, so it really should be of no surprise whatsoever that a group claiming to support women sells out.

For the record, I am pro-life. I find it hard to justify abortion n any circumstance, but I’ll listen to opposing arguments. However, I don’t run a group that claims to speak for all women. If NOW was all it claimed to be, it would support all women, especially those who are pro-life.

Unfortunately, NOW is progressive first, pro woman second.

As Sarah Palin recently reminded us, the women of the original feminist movement were pro-life. These were strong women, women who could conquer all. As she wrote:

The pro-life movement is pro-women, and it empowers women with the message that we are strong enough and smart enough to be able to pursue education, vocations and avocations while giving life to a child. This movement is largely run by women. In fact, many of the earliest leaders of the women’s rights movement were pro-life – women like Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Alice Paul, the author of the original Equal Rights Amendment in 1923, who said, “Abortion is the ultimate exploitation of women.”

Today, more and more young women agree with these feminist foremothers, for they know in their hearts that the culture of life empowers women by offering them real choices. Unfortunately, rather than portray this positive message, the media often focuses on divisions among Americans on this issue.

With that in mind Sarah tweeted this yesterday: “What’s N.O.W. thinking? Censoring a pro-women/pro-child Super Bowl ad? Unbelievable. Pls see my FB post on this“:

Women’s Rights Groups: Your Double Standard is Showing

Women’s Rights groups, like NOW, commendably call out advertisers and networks for airing sexist and demeaning portrayals of women that lead to young women’s diminished self-esteem and acceptance of roles as mere sexed-up objects.

What a ridiculous situation they’re getting themselves into now with their protest of CBS airing a pro-life ad during the upcoming Super Bowl game. The ad will feature Heisman trophy winner Tim Tebow and his mom, and they’ll speak to the sanctity of life and the beautiful potential within every innocent child as Mrs. Tebow acknowledges her choice to give Tim life, despite less than ideal circumstances. Messages like this empower women! This speaks to the strength and commitment and nurturing spirit within women. The message says everything positive and nothing negative about the power of women – and life. Evidently, some women’s rights groups like NOW do not like that message.

NOW is looking at the pro-life issue backwards. Women should be reminded that they are strong enough and smart enough to make decisions that allow for career and educational opportunities while still giving their babies a chance at life. In my own home, my daughter Bristol has also been challenged by pro-abortion “women’s rights” groups who don’t agree with her decision to have her baby, nor do they like the abstinence message which she articulated as her personal commitment. NOW could gain ground and credibility with everyday Americans, thus allowing their pro-women message to be heard by more than just their ardent supporters, if they made wiser decisions regarding which battles to pick. They should call attention to and embrace the Tebow’s message, instead of covertly and overtly disrespecting what Mrs. Tebow, Bristol, and millions of other women have chosen to do (in less than ideal circumstances).

My message to these groups who are inexplicably offended by a pro-woman, pro-child, pro-life message airing during the Super Bowl: please concentrate on empowering women, help with efforts to prevent unexpected pregnancies, stay consistent with your message that for too long women have been made to feel like sex objects in our “modern” culture and that we can expect better in 2010. But don’t let your double standard glare so vividly as to undo some of the good to which you could contribute.

And CBS: just do the right thing. Don’t cave. Have the backbone to run the ad.

To the Tebows: thank you. America is listening. We appreciate you.

– Sarah Palin

This is one of the things that really makes Sarah Palin such a special person in today’s political environment. Sarah is unabashedly pro-life and embraces the culture of life with great zeal. Never afraid to stand up for those innocents unable to stand up for themselves.

We are to be judged by how we treat the least among us. In my mind that’s those with special-needs, our elderly, it’s our soon-to-be-born babies. The heart of our nation shines brightly when we take care of those who are less fortunate, who have more challenges than the rest of us.

–Sarah Palin

It never ceases to amaze me how these so-called “pro-choice” groups think. They push for a “woman’s right to choose” but you damn well better choose their way, or else. Isn’t progressivism great!

Here is the original press release from Focus on the Family announcing their advertisement featuring Tim and his mother, Pam:

Focus on the Family to Air Super Bowl Ad

Commercial will feature Tim Tebow and his mother, Pam

Colorado Springs, Colo (Friday, Jan. 15, 2010) – Focus on the Family will broadcast the first Super Bowl ad in its history February 7 during CBS Sports’ coverage of the game at Dolphin Stadium in South Florida.

The 30-second spot from the international family-help organization will feature college football star Tim Tebow and his mother, Pam. They will share a personal story centered on the theme of “Celebrate Family, Celebrate Life.”

Jim Daly, president and CEO of Focus on the Family, said the chance to partner with the Tebows and lift up a meaningful message about family and life comes at the right moment in the culture, because “families need to be inspired.”

Tim and Pam share our respect for life and our passion for helping families thrive,” Daly said. “They live what we see every day – that the desire for family closeness is written on the hearts of every generation. Focus on the Family is about nurturing that desire and strengthening families by empowering them with the tools they need to live lives rooted in morals and values.”

Daly added that all the funds to air the ad came from a handful of “very generous and committed friends” who donated specifically to support the project. No money from the ministry’s general fund was used.

The Tebows said they agreed to appear in the commercial because the issue of life is one they feel very strongly about.

Daly chuckled at some of the “will-they-or-won’t-they?” speculation in the media about whether Focus would indeed create a Super Bowl ad.

Now that the ad has been shot, we’re excited to tell people it’s coming, because the Tebows’ story is such an important one for our culture to hear,” he said. “You won’t want to miss it.”

For more information, call Gary Schneeberger @ 719-548-5853 or e-mail press@family.org

You can learn more about Focus on the family here.

Maybe someday the National Organization for Women will re-think their position on all of this and join the culture of life with the rest of civilized society, and stop backing the barbaric practices of the culture of death brought about by the progressive movement.

Sarah Palin: Women’s Rights Groups: Your Double Standard is Showing

Posted by Ron Devito on January 27, 2010

For the past few decades, the conventional wisdom held that supporting abortion is a core tenet of Feminism. This occurs despite the fact that one of Feminism’s Founding Mothers — Susan B. Anthony was pro-life. Feminists for Life, which Governor Palin is a member of, sells mugs with this quote from Susan B. Anthony: “Sweeter even than to have had the joy of caring for children of my own has it been to me to help bring about a better state of things for mothers generally, so their unborn little ones could not be willed away from them.”

Modern women’s Rights groups in embracing the pro-abortion movement have strayed away from this original founding principle to the extent that the conventional wisdom holds that you cannot possibly support women’s rights in any way, shape or form unless you are “pro-choice.”

Governor Palin’s Facebook Note, Women’s Rights Groups: Your Double Standard is Showing addresses the protest by women’s rights groups of CBS airing a pro-life ad during the Super Bowl.

The ad will feature Heisman trophy winner Tim Tebow and his mom, and they’ll speak to the sanctity of life and the beautiful potential within every innocent child as Mrs. Tebow acknowledges her choice to give Tim life, despite less than ideal circumstances. Messages like this empower women! This speaks to the strength and commitment and nurturing spirit within women. The message says everything positive and nothing negative about the power of women – and life. Evidently, some women’s rights groups like NOW do not like that message (Palin, 2010, ¶2).

Further, Governor Palin wrote, “NOW is looking at the pro-life issue backwards. Women should be reminded that they are strong enough and smart enough to make decisions that allow for career and educational opportunities while still giving their babies a chance at life” (Palin, 2010, ¶3). Governor Palin went on to address how these groups have been putting pressure on her daughter Bristol. They don’t like that she chose life. As Governor Palin addressed in this Note, and as Adrienne Ross addressed in Bristol Palin Embraces Abstinence; Oprah Suggests Retraction?, these groups seem to take issue with her pledge of celibacy till marriage so that she can focus on her maternal, education, and career responsibilities (Palin, 2010, ¶3).

Feminism is supposed to be about empowering and elevating women. Where is the choice in “pro-choice,” when the only approved choice espoused by some of these women’s rights groups is abortion? Is the message really “pro-choice,” or is it more “pro-abortion”? It almost appears that abortion, or support of it is a rite of passage in being considered a Feminist. They subscribe to the fanciful notion that a woman who becomes a mother is somehow having her rights trampled on. Meanwhile, women are subject to unimaginable acts of violence here and abroad; and our culture has become hyper-sexualized and women are trotted out as sexual play things, and not just by men, but by other women as well.

My message to these groups who are inexplicably offended by a pro-woman, pro-child, pro-life message airing during the Super Bowl: please concentrate on empowering women, help with efforts to prevent unexpected pregnancies, stay consistent with your message that for too long women have been made to feel like sex objects in our “modern” culture and that we can expect better in 2010 (Palin, 2010, ¶4).

Governor Palin concluded by calling on CBS to do the right thing by airing the ad.

Metaphorically Speaking…

Posted by Dr. Fay on January 27, 2010

Adrienne Ross wrote an excellent, hard-hitting blog this weekend about how Levi Johnston is parlaying lies, attacking his son’s family, and making excuses for not adequately supporting his son. Her post is filled with metaphors, comparing Levi to a dog that won’t lie down and shut up but just keeps running around barking and biting. In her last paragraph, she used the words “put down” metaphorically to say that Levi needs to be told to shut up.

Two of the Sarah Palin-hating blogs intentionally misunderstood Adrienne’s metaphor and tried to spin it as saying that Adrienne wanted to put Levi down as in euthanization. This was the farthest thing from Adrienne’s mind and would be totally inconsistent with the statement she made in the immediately preceding paragraph:

I believe there’s hope for Levi; I really do. And I hope he grabs ahold of it soon because he’s treading on very thin Alaska ice.

Since the hater blogs chose to misinterpret Adrienne’s metaphor by using a definition for “put down” that is totally inconsistent with Adrienne’s intentions, I decided to check an online dictionary. And here are the meanings for “put down” that are constistent with Adrienne’s intentions.

From Merriam-Webster:

to bring to an end : stop <put down a riot>

disapprove, criticize <was put down for the way she dressed>

to make ineffective : check <put down the gossip>

So Adrienne’s use of the word “put down” was totally appropriate for its context. It is to the haters’ discredit that they attempted to turn an innocent remark into something that it was not.

But then that is what we have come to expect from the evilmongers who habitually use lies and distortions to attack Governor Palin and her family.

Adrienne Ross is a valued member of the excellent team of authors on the Sarah Web Brigade blog and Sarah Palin Information Blog. She is also an author on US4Palin, C4P, and SarahNet. In addition, she is in a leadership position with the 2012 Draft Sarah Palin Committee. Like Sarah Palin, she loves her God and her country and walks the walk with her conservative values.

It is sad to see people so filled with hatred that they will turn the truth into a lie. But that is what is happening on a daily basis on the blogs that attacked Adrienne. However, the truth will prevail, as it always does in the end.
