Tim Tebow joined the virtual 48th Annual March for Life on Friday (Jan. 29) and told the story of how doctors encouraged his mother to abort him due to medical complications during her pregnancy.
Tebow said she disregarded the doctors’ recommendation and instead decided to trust God although there was a great chance the pregnancy could have taken her life.
The pregnancy came with a lot of setbacks and heartaches, Tebow explained, that when it came time for an experienced doctor of over 35 years to deliver Tim, he said, “This is the greatest miracle that I have ever seen, because I have no idea how he survived.”
The doctors explained that the placenta wasn’t attached, which can cause many issues including lack of nourishment the baby needed to survive.
“I am so grateful that my mom gave me a chance at life. Because of her pro-life story, I now get to share my story,” Tebow says, through tears. “But it’s only because my mom gave me a chance.”
“I believe that every single life matters to God,” the ESPN commentator boldly said. “You know who else I believe stood and stands for life…Is our Savior Jesus. He said in John I came to give life and life abundantly…He had a mission that was a rescue mission for us. That mission was to come down to this earth and go to the cross and defeat death and overcome the world. That was His mission. But He also had a motivation…Hebrews 12:2 tells us fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith. Who for the joy set before Him endured the cross despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
