Very classy. Apparently Mrs. Tebow got pregnant with Tim when she was living in the Phillipines, where abortions are not only illegal but asking for one will get you ridiculed, harassed and possibly referred to the authorities by medical workers who can face punishment themselves if they were to actually perform the procedure. So the whole “advised to get an abortion, instead kept baby and received gift from God” story is pretty suspect. I don’t really blame the Tebows, but I don’t know what it is with these focus on the family types that they can’t ever just tell the truth.
not to mention the whole “i *chose* life but i don’t think anyone should get to make any other choice” subtext.
there was actually a pretty good article about it on salon (you can find it linked on edge of the west) about how many women with that condition actually die and how “choosing life” in this circumstance might actually mean choosing abortion for the fetus and life for the mother.
