Pam’s story is ‘anti-abortion’ and that is a good thing! Even”pro-choice” people have said many times that they are not “pro-abortion” and that being pro-choice doesn’t mean one believes abortion is a good thing. So why isn’t the true story of a woman choosing life over abortion with a good outcome a blessing for everyone to celebrate?
If you read what is written here, perhaps you read the post on Snopes and their inability to determine that Pam’s Story concerning the birth of her son, Tim Tebow, was true. They gave as their excuse that abortion isn’t legal in the Philippines unless the life of the mother is at risk. Pam clearly stated that the doctors thought she should have an abortion all the way through to the seventh month of her pregnancy in order to save her life.
Abortion to protect the life of the mother is legal in the Philippines. Perhaps this needs to be explained to Snopes in order for them to be able to determine the veracity of the story. The greater question, however, is should a pro-life commercial be considered controversial and should those who want to produce such an ad be pressured to cease and desist?
When ‘Focus on the Family’ bought commercial time to tell Pam’s story in 2006 there was an outcry from those who are apparently “pro-abortion” that the story might contain an “anti-abortion”message. I say “pro-abortion” because “choice” by its very nature means that some people will choose not to abort and that choice will be accepted and respected, as well it should be. When a person or group fails to recognize that life is also a ‘choice’ it follows that they have shown themselves to be, not pro-choice, but pro-abortion.
This seems to be the forgotten aspect by those who carry the ‘pro-choice’ banner. Women like Mrs. Pam Tebow have their integrity questioned or their story stifled simply because of the prejudice our nation now embraces against those who choose against abortion.
This is another example of our ‘up-side down land’.
This year perhaps all who are pro-life will continue to work together to support women and families like Pam and the Tebow family in their decision for life. May God continue to richly bless her for this choice.
