This sums up how I feel about the Super Bowl ad pretty well, actually...

"We strongly support the right of every woman — including Mrs. Tebow — to make important personal medical decisions for herself."

I read that message this morning (I'm on their mailing list, too), and felt pretty good about it.

Yeah, one of the things that's most annoying about so many of these pushes (this one and the Palin story, for example) is that they can be summed up with "I'm so proud we made the right decision, and that means the government should outlaw it so that no one else can make that decision for themselves." Oh, and simultaneously claiming to be in favor of "limited government" that doesn't interfere in people's lives.

If they put up an ad about how they believed that was the right decision, and urging others to make the same decision, while we might disagree, no one would dispute their right to say that, and it would actually be consistent.
