The mother of former Heisman Trophy winner and current minor league baseball player Tim Tebow gave a powerful speech at the March for Life on Friday.
Pam Tebow recounted how she became pregnant while she and her husband were working in as missionaries in the Philippines. The doctors said she had a tumor and pressured her to have an abortion instead of carrying baby Tim to term. But the Tebows refused and put their trust in God, Pam said.
“In the beginning it was a difficult pregnancy. We thought we lost him so many times. The best doctor in town did tests and determined that Timmy was a massive fetal tissue a tumor and I needed to abort and abort immediately or I would die. If I had died in childbirth, God still would be God, wouldn’t he? But because of our love for the life in the womb, we chose to trust God and refuse to have an abortion,” she said.
“During this difficult, tough pregnancy, I had no medical care, but I clung to our loving God and suddenly the bleeding stopped and my husband flew me to Manila and a wonderful American-trained pro-life doctor saved my life and the life of our son,” she continued. “And when Timmy entered the world, he said ‘this is a miracle baby, I never witnessed such a miracle,’ because only a tiny piece of the placenta was intact. He was malnourished and we asked everybody to pray that he’ll grow big and strong. If you’ve seen him lately, you know those prayers were answered.
