Why is a commercial about Pam Tebow's "choice" to keep her baby controversial?

Yesterday, I posted the upcoming commercial featuring Tim Tebow and his mother's decision not to kill him in 1987. Though the commercial is clearly Pro-Life, why is the "Pro-Choice" community up in arms. Erin Matson a V.P. of the National Organization for Women called the commercial "frankly offensive." She claimed it was "hate masquerading as love. It sends a message that abortion is always a mistake." And Jehmu Greene of the Women's Media Center plans to hold "CBS and the NFL and the other Super Bowl advertisers accountable for inserting an exceedingly controversial issue" into the Super Bowl. (Link to story here.)

Why is this controversial? Aren't these people supposed to be in favor of "choice"? Shouldn't they be applauding the "choice" that Pam Tebow made?

Or are these people finally showing their true colors. They're not "Pro-Choice." They're simply, and sadly, "Pro-Abortion."
