Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow has a long history with the pro-life movement — even since before his birth, when doctors recommended that Tebow’s mother, Pam, abort him.
She didn’t listen to the doctors and the rest is history.
At a Kansans for Life event earlier this month, Tebow made a powerful statement about how saving unborn children from abortion is a better legacy than winning Super Bowls.
“It really does mean a lot more than winning the Super Bowl,” he said to the banquet crowd. “One day, when you look back and people are talking about you and they say, ‘Oh my gosh, what are you going to be known for?’ Are you going to say Super Bowl, or we saved a lot of babies?”
Tebow then provided his own testimony, saying that he was a “miracle” child for making it.
“You see, my mom 32 years ago had doctors tell her she needed to abort me because if she didn’t, it was going to cost her life,” he said. “And they didn’t even believe that I was a baby. They thought I was a tumor.”
“To make a long story short, when I was born, they found out the placenta wasn’t actually attached,” Tebow continued. “So, the doctor looked at my mom after 37 years of being a doctor and said, ‘This is the biggest miracle I’ve ever seen because I’m not sure how he’s alive.’ … I’m so grateful that my mom trusted God with my life and her life.”
