2-8-21, WesternJournal* – No complaints THIS year for Superbowl #55 if you were a Tampa Bay ‘Buccaneers’ fan; especially if you wanted to see Tom Brady win his seventh Super Bowl – he did! The Buccaneers 31-9 thrashing of the Chiefs was lovely although a boring game. And then there were the commercials - in short, dreadful.
And yet, in the midst of all the miserable commercials, a bright light blared as Toyota aired a powerful pro-life ad featuring American double amputee female swimmer Jessica Long, who’s won 23 medals in the Paralympics and is set to compete in her fifth games in Tokyo this summer. 
Do you believe in the sanctity of all life? In Toyota’s ad, Jessica is shown swimming in a pool. We then hear a voice-over on a phone call. “We found a baby girl for your adoption, but there are some things you need to know. She’s in Siberia, and she was born with a rare condition. Her legs will need to be amputated. I know this is difficult to hear, but her life, it won’t be easy.” … the future Mother says: “It might not be easy,” the mother responds, “but it’ll be amazing. I can’t wait to meet her.”
In a sea of terrible ads, this one managed to stand out. Toyota’s ad was indeed pro-life and, apparently, you’re going to be shouted down by people who believe it objectifies disabled people. However, Toyota acknowledge that yes, there was a pro-life element to the ad. It was tender without being saccharine, meaningful without being preachy. It reaffirmed the value of all life and emphasized the beauty of adoption.
During one of the worst Super Bowls in the worst NFL season in history, the Toyota advertisement was a breath of fresh air because it honored life.
