The Tebows' Abortion Video

Pam Tebow's doctor recommended an abortion to protect her life. But Pam said no. "We were determined to trust the Lord with the children that he would give us," she calmly explains in the interview. "And if God called me to give up my life, then He would take care of my family."

Wow. She was ready to sacrifice her life—and leave her children motherless—to give her fetus a chance at birth. That's serious commitment. But this isn't just a story. It's a message. Looking into the camera, Bob Tebow delivers the closing plea to women contemplating abortion: "Don't kill your baby."
