Pam Tebow, the celebrated mother of football superstar and Christian role model Tim Tebow,will share the story of her decision against an abortion as the guest speaker at the West Coast Walk for Life next month.
Tebow will undoubtedly recount the story of her decision not to have an abortion.
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.
The doctors believed there was danger to Pam and that the baby would not survive, or if he did, would have very serious problems. His parents went to the best doctor in their area of the Philippines. The doctor told his mother in a slow monotone that “An abortion is the only way to save your life.”
As Tim says in his book, “According to [the doctor], the ‘mass of fetal tissue’ or ‘tumor’—me—had to go.”
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 she prayed for a healthy baby, but left that up to God. After Tim was born, the doctor who delivered him said only a small part of the placenta was attached, but it was “just enough to keep your baby nourished all these months.”
After birth, both Pam and Tim faced serious challenges. Pam said, “We were concerned at first because he was so malnourished.” But, as the world knows, Tim surpassed that to become a celebrated athlete winning the Heisman Trophy and leading the Denver Broncos to the playoffs.
Organizers of the 13th Annual Walk for Life West Coast invite everyone to join them on January 21, 2017 in San Francisco to hear Pam Tebow and others.
The Walk for Life West Coast began 13 years ago as a grassroots effort from locals who live in the Bay Area. Co-founders and Bay Area residents Eva Muntean and Dolores Meehan started the Walk for Life West Coast to show people that there are other options for woman than abortion. These women, and the over 50,000 people expected to join them at the Walk for Life, believe these options are actually more “pro-woman” than abortion, protecting a woman’s natural instinct to love her child and giving her choices to empower her to do so.
The 2017 Walk for Life West Coast will begin at 12:30 PM with a rally in the city’s Civic Center Plaza.
