Women's groups to CBS: Nix the Focus on the Family Super Bowl ad


Calling CBS' decision to accept an advocacy ad to air in the Super Bowl "outrageous," women's groups are urging the network to pull a Focus on the Family commercial and asking like-minded people to sign a petition.

The Women's Media Center, a non-profit group that was founded in 2005 by Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan and Gloria Steinem, is organizing the protest with the backing of the National Organization of Women and other groups, according to USA Today.

The ad in question was described by the non-profit Christian group Focus on the Family as featuring college football star Tim Tebow and his mom portraying a "meaningful message about family and life."
