More on Tebow - College Football

I was amazed after reading more about the life of Tim Tebow, the great Christian QB about whom I have written before. What struck me this time is an article in Lifenews about him. According to the article Tim Tebow could have been aborted if his mother would have followed doctor's directions to abort her baby. Pam Tebow and her husband were Christian missionaries in the Philippines in 1985 and they prayed for "Timmy" before she became pregnant. Pam entered into a coma after she contracted amoebic dysentery, an infection of the intestine caused by a parasite found in a contaminated food or drink. The treatment for the medical condition would require strong medications that doctors told Pam had caused irreversible damage to Tim -- so they advised her to have an abortion. Pam Tebow 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. Pam ultimately spent the last two months of her pregnancy in bed and, eventually, gave birth to a health baby boy in August 1987. Is not that amazing? How many babies continue to be aborted that could have been perhaps governors, priests, doctors, perhaps even the Pope. When we will get through our thick skulls that ALL life is sacred and must be respected and loved from the moment of conception till the moment of natural death? May the Lord have mercy on us, stubborn and selfish creatures!!!
