Pam knows about the pain of considering abortion.
> More than 21 years ago, she and her husband, Bob, were serving as
> missionaries to the Philippines and praying for a fifth child. Pam
> contracted amoebic dysentery, an infection of the intestine caused
> by a parasite found in a contaminated food or drink. She entered
> into a coma and was treated with strong antibiotics before they
> discovered she was pregnant. Doctors urged her to abort the baby for
> her own safety and told her that the medicines had caused
> irreversible damage to her baby. She refused the abortion and cited
> her Christian faith as the reason for her hope that her son would be
> born without the devastating disabilities physicians predicted.
> The doctors "didn't think of it as a life, they thought of it as a
> mass of fetal tissue," Pam said.
> While pregnant, Pam nearly lost their baby four times but refused to
> consider abortion. She recalled making a pledge to God with her
> husband, "If you will give us a son, we'll name him 'Timothy,' and
> we'll make him a preacher."
> Pam ultimately spent the last two months of her pregnancy in bed
> and, eventually, gave birth to a health baby boy August 14, 1987.
> Pam's youngest son is indeed a preacher. He preaches in prisons,
> makes hospital visits, and serves with his father's ministry in the
> Philippines .
> He also plays football. Pam's son is Tim Tebow.
> Last year, the University of Florida 's star quarterback, became the
> first sophomore in history to win college football's highest award,
> theHeisman Trophy. Tim's notoriety and the family's inspiring story
> have given Pam numerous opportunities to speak on behalf of women's
> centers across the country.
> She was the keynote speaker at the Oct. 23, 2008, benefit banquet
> for two Louis ville ministries. A Woman's Choice Resource Center
> offers such services as free pregnancy tests, post-abortion
> counseling, adoption information, and material support. Necole's
> Place is a companion ministry that provides support services for
> women in need.
> Several Louis ville-area Kentucky Baptist churches and Long Run
> Baptist Association help support both ministries.
> A Woman's Choice board chairman, John Schmitt, reported at the
> banquet that in the 20 years since the resource center opened, 4,500
> children have been saved from abortion -- 400 in this year alone.
> Speaking of the thousands of lives saved, Pam Tebow said, "That just
> blows my mind. Every little baby you save matters."
