Tim Tebow's mother refused abortion

Tim Tebow: Through My EyesWhen Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow was in his mother Pam's womb, doctors told her that she should abort him. Strong drugs she had received to combat an infection resulted in severe placental abruption, causing serious damage to tiny Tim Tebow according to the doctors.

The doctors "thought I should have an abortion to save my life from the beginning all the way through the seventh month," Pam Tebow told the Gainesville Sun. She rejected the doctors' advice, choosing instead to focus on praying for her son. After he was born, Pam expressed concern that baby Tim was "so malnourished," but in retrospect she says "he definitely made up for it."
