Tim Tebow Superbowl Ad Response

In case you were unaware, there was an anti-abortion ad shown during the Superbowl that featured Tim Tebow. The ad was paid for by Focus on the Family in a lame-ass attempt to get people to stop having abortions by using a new logical fallacy I'll dub the "You Just Killed Beethovan" gambit, in honor of that silly old email forward that asks:
Q1: If you knew a woman who was pregnant, and she had 8 kids already, three who were deaf, two who were blind, one mentally retarded, and she had syphilis; would you recommend that she have an abortion?

If you said yes, you just killed Beethoven.
Ah yes, memories. Ok, well it seems that Jimmy Kimmel wanted to respond to the advert in his own way. Here you go!

I know. How dare Focus on the Family spend their own money to "advertise" a positive message! It is lame to think unborn children have a right to life whether or not they're the next Beethoven; all 50 million+ of them.

How dare they try and resist a backhanded way of population control of minorities. What do they think this is, a free country? With free speech comes guidelines and responsible speech and not intolerant rhetoric like anti-abortionism.

Someone should revoke their privilege to free speech!

(one day abortion will be illegal)

Ok, Jon, a question: If abortions were illegal, what punishment would you suggest for a woman who has one? Should she go to jail? Execution? A fine? Maybe a ticket of some sort? What?

It's not black and white. You can't make something that certain people need, medically, to save their life, illegal.

Focus on the Family is certainly free to do with its money what it wants, but don't think there won't be the rational world out here to push back against your stupid "either/or" mindset and religious blathering about "souls".
