‘They said I was a tumor’: Tim Tebow opens up about how his mom rejected abortion


Former NFL player Tim Tebow opened up at the Passion 2018 conference in Atlanta earlier this month about his mom’s decision to reject abortion while she was pregnant with him.

Tebow’s mom, Pam Tebow, is scheduled to address the 45th annual March for Life next week in Washington, D.C.

What did Tebow say?

Tebow, now a minor league baseball player, told attendees at the conference that he was born in the Philippines to missionary parents.

“I have a special birth story,” Tebow said. “The doctors said that I wasn’t even a baby; they said I was a tumor.”

“Then when I actually was born my four older siblings nicknamed me ‘Timmy the Tumor,’” he said.

Although there was a lot of “craziness,” with his mom’s pregnancy, she chose life for him, he said.

“She decided to trust God and not what the doctors were saying,” Tebow said. “And then I was born and it was a miracle — the placenta wasn’t attached the entire pregnancy … I was malnourished, but I made up for it pretty quickly.”

He said he has “amazing” parents and they are his role models.

The Tebow family has shared their story before, including in this Focus on the Family ad:

Pam Tebow will share her story on Jan. 19 at the rally preceding the March for Life and is the keynote speaker at the organization’s Rose Dinner following the event.
