Every year, millions of Americans tune in to the Super Bowl — some focused on football and others on the commercials. Every year, companies compete to see which commercial the nation will fall in love with. But who can argue with a commercial that literally saved a little girl’s life?
In 2010, Tim Tebow and his mother Pam shared a snippet of their pro-life story during the Super Bowl. A full-length version of their story was available on Focus on the Family’s website, and many Americans went to the site, searching for more. One of these people who searched was Susan. She had just found out she was pregnant and was planning on getting an abortion. However, Susan recognized Tim Tebow and was drawn in by the commercial’s positive message.
Later, at home alone, Susan found the video below, where Pam Tebow shares more of the details on how she rejected a recommended abortion and gave life to Tim:
After watching this and the Super Bowl commercial again, Susan felt a tug on her heart. After talking with a Focus on the Family staffer, she made a new choice: she would give life to her child, too. Little Avita Grace was born months later. Today, she’s a beautiful 6-year-old: a baby saved by a Super Bowl commercial. (You can read more of Susan’s and Avita’s story here.)
Another Super Bowl commercial to remember is the Doritos’ ultrasound commercial that illustrates the beauty and humanity of every child — starting in the womb.
