The Truth Truck has been rolling throughout the Miami area for about a month in preparation for the Pro-Bowl and the Super Bowl, which are being held 1 week apart in the same venue for the first time in 30 years.
"Our Truth Truck was seen last Sunday by the largest crowd ever to attend a Pro-Bowl football game. This Sunday, we have the opportunity to witness to even more people - literally hundreds of thousands - who will be especially curious about our message, given the Tebow controversy," said [OR prez Troy] Newman.

In addition, LifeNews.com reports:
... Clyde Christensen, the assistant head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, has his own potential abortion story that changed his life.
Christensen's mother was an unwed teenager who gave birth to him when she was 15....
"I also can't help but look back and think of how easily my life and thus generations to follow could have been snuffed out before it ever got started," Christensen shared last year at a site for adopted people.
"I can't help but think of a 15-year-old, unwed, pregnant teen who made a courageous decision not to abort her child, but instead gave him a chance at life that over 50 million children since have not had. That child was me," he said.
Christensen was adopted [adopting mom and Clyde pictured left], with his mother leaving specific instructions at the Los Angeles County Hospital to place her child in a Christian home or saying she would take Christensen back.
He has still never met his birth mother - "but I am so grateful for her courage to have her child when it wasn't and still isn't to this day the choice of most."
The "pro-choice" movement knows they are losing and that ultrasound machines and commercials like the Tebows' are confronting the country with the undeniable humanity of each unborn child, just as Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin put a human face on the 3 million slaves in America, thus hastening their liberation.
From the abolitionist movement, to the child labor movement, to the civil
rights movement, and to the pro-life movement, written and visual
media are important components of American social justice causes. I'm
sure pro-slavery forces didn't like Stowe's book either.
When you're reduced to pitching a hissy fit that a mother brags about her baby, you're screwed.Posted by: Christina at February 7, 2010 11:18 AM
What a blessing for Clyde Christensen, Colts' Asst. Coach, to have TWO wonderful, couragous women to look to for inspiration in his own life -his birth mother, whom he hasn't actually met, and his adoptive mother. How much stronger he must be for this experience! And pro-choicer/aborts would diminish his worth in the womb by calling him a "choice"? It boggles the mind. So glad that he told us his story.
Not to be preachy, but Pro-choicers, please, re-think what you are advocating when you sit on the fence and don't take a strong stand for LIFE!Posted by: Janet at February 7, 2010 12:38 PM
Oh, and thank God for the Truth Trucks. How awesome that they've been in Miami ALL week!!Posted by: Janet at February 7, 2010 12:40 PM
I really shouldn't give the opposition aid and comfort, but I have a weak spot for the invincibly clueless. So with Jill's patient forbearance...
Dear Planned Parenthood, NOW, and all other baby bully organizations:
First, as Christina presciently observes in a comment above,
"When you're reduced to pitching a hissy fit that a mother brags about her baby, you're screwed."
Focus on the Family are expert fisherman, and you Big Mouth Bass took the bait. You allowed yourselves to be exposed for just who and what you are:
Haters of motherhood, fatherhood, family and babies.
What on earth were you thinking when you decided to commit all of your forces, even your reserves in a battle against the Tebow ad? WERE you thinking at all?!
FOF couldn't lose this one. You were outgeneraled. If the ad aired with no opposition from you, they won a small victory.
If the ad was shot down because of you, then they won a great victory.
And, as has come to pass, if you committed all of your forces and the ad aired IN SPITE OF YOU, then they won a Waterloo or Gettysburg at your expense.
Sometimes it's best to know when to just shut up.
What's that? You're not anti-child, anti-motherhood, anti-fatherhood because many of you have your own families?
It takes more than the biological act of reproduction to forge a mother's heart. Having experienced the beauty of procreation, knowing the utter dependency of the infant child on the mother, advocating the deaths of scores of millions of babies shows a certain disconnect in you.
Your shrill opposition to the Tebow ad betrays your black hearts.
This past month, you allowed the nation an unprecedented peek behind the curtain of the pro-choice movement. You'll never recover from it. Not content to let the pro-lifers have a brief warm-fuzzy 30 seconds, you have generated weeks of video and articles that will be played over and over for years to come.
You need to do some damage control, and fast. You need to jettison "CHOICE". It won't work anymore. You blew that one.
You need a new slogan, new verbal engineering. You need to somehow convince women that abortion is a good.
But I warn you, such a task is not going to be so easy as it was thirty-seven years ago. Science is gaining on you on all fronts.
There is an ever-growing body of medical literature showing a link between abortion and breast cancer, and an ever-growing body of MD's and Ph.D.'s such as myself who are committed to making that information accessible to the public.
There is an ever-growing body of literature showing that abortion induces its own unique manifestation of post-traumatic stress syndrome. To match it, there are burgeoning healing ministries such as Lumina, Rachel's Vineyard, and Silent No More Awareness, to name a few.
Don't laugh you fools. I was at the Supreme Court steps at this year's March. Silent No More had a dilemma. There were 70 men and women present to give their testimonies. They wanted to give everyone their shot without having to turn anyone away for the sake of time.
Were that not enough, 3D and 4D ultrasounds have completely unmasked the lie that it's just a clump of cells. The Endowment for Human Development has remarkable video and ultrasound clips:
Check them out while you reinvent your sales campaign.
And then there is the fact that this year's March drew well over 300,000 people, half of whom were under the age of 25. The significance? These young people know full well that if the escape hatch of abortion is welded shut, they won't have the same 'choice' that others have had.
A new generation is embracing the responsibility that you've ducked. Your blood should be running cold.
Good luck inventing a new vocabulary. Your movement's best days are behind it now. Like Hitler, you'll ride out the remainder of the war you started in your bunker as you go down to total defeat.
Check out my blog if you need more insight into yourselves. I can't say that I wish you luck. I do pray for your conversion.

I think this is just the tip of the ice berg. I am praying that people regardless of their politicial views will start to see abortion for what it is, Death, Murder, that these little ones are babies and not just a blood mass like I was told and so many other women and men out there. Those trucks with those precious little body parts on them, what do these Pro-Death people think that is, oh excuse me, that is just a blood mass!! Are you kidding me!!!
It is time for GOD's people and people who have a HEART to rise up and say
"WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF PP AND NARAL AND ALL THOSE SO CALLED WOMEN'S GROUP'S AND THEIR STINKIN LIES". I say "Get off your Blessed Assurance and do something"!!!!!!
Thank you Dr. Nadal! Bravo!

The pregame commercial has been released: http://lifenews.com/timtebow.htmlPosted by: Kelsey at February 7, 2010 3:55 PM
***Sisters of Mary (Ann Arbor, MI) to Appear on Oprah, Tuesday, 2/9 ***
Dear Friends of the Dominican Sisters of Mary,
In this age of instant communications, word travels fast, so you may have already heard the news: we will be appearing on the Oprah Winfrey Show on Tuesday, February 9, which also happens to be the 13th anniversary of the founding of our Community. Oprah was interested in doing a show on religious life as a hidden way of life which many people never experience, and so her producers asked us if we would be willing to welcome them. We accepted this invitation as an opportunity to share our life, and by extension, the Gospel, with an audience that we might not ever reach otherwise.
I've got the TV on waiting for the Superbowl! Brovo to Dr. Nadel!! Don't you just love how the pro-death crowd is quick to label anyone against abortion 'ANTI-CHOICE', yet they are the very people who are in fact anti-choice! No superbowl PL add seems really petty to me! And pro-aborts are the first bashers of anyone with a larger family. The Octomom, Kate and 8, and the Duggers! Don't forget pro-deathers, these women have a body and a choice too!!Posted by: Heather at February 7, 2010 4:33 PM
oops...meant DR. NADAL above post. Pati, the American pro-death movement can't "dumb us down" with the truth truck! You're right. I see little arms and a skull and bones! "Blobs" don't have human bones!Posted by: Heather at February 7, 2010 4:38 PM
is that the full commercial?Posted by: angel at February 7, 2010 5:17 PM
I just saw it. That was it?Posted by: Heather at February 7, 2010 6:00 PM
That picture is not of Clyde and his adoptive mother, it is Clyde and his wife, Debbie.Posted by: Sue Christensen at February 8, 2010 11:16 AM
