Snopes say they cannot confirm Pam’s Story.
I opened a forward today because it came from a cousin. It was entitled “Pam’s Story.” The email told the story of a woman named Pam who served as a missionary in the Philippines. She contracted Amoebic Dysentery during her pregnancy and was advised to terminate the pregnancy. She refused, and after a very difficult pregnancy gave birth to a son – a son named Tim Tebow.
This is a touching and interesting story, but there is another aspect that is also very interesting! Snopes cannot confirm the story?
How easy should it be to confirm this story?
If one reads the Snopes account, it isn’t long before the reader realizes the story is true. Snopes CHOSE not to confirm the story.
Now consider these facts: The Mother’s story was told to the Gainesville Sun in 2007 and later to Focus on the Family. Snopes doesn’t deny that the Tebow family served in the Philippines as missionaries. They do not deny that while the family served there the mother became pregnant. There is no question about the mother contracting amoebic dysentery. The uncertain outcome of the pregnancy is not questioned. The parents both say the story is true and yet Snopes refused to write TRUE as the outcome of their research, but rather call into question the integrity of the Mother and Father!
The reason they give: Most Doctors in the Philippines are Catholic and Catholics do not ‘usually’ suggest abortion.
Who do you believe – Snopes or the Tebow family? I believe the Tebows!
