(Newser) – Tim Tebow and his mother will appear in a 30-second anti-abortion ad to air during the Super Bowl. The TV spot, for the group Focus on the Family, is expected to feature them discussing his 1987 birth. Pam Tebow disregarded doctors' advice to abort the pregnancy after she fell ill on a mission trip to the Philippines.

"Tim and Pam share our respect for life and our passion for helping families thrive," the CEO of Focus on the Family tells the AP. "Now that the ad has been shot, we're excited to tell people it's coming because the Tebows' story is such an important one for our culture to hear."
