An argument against Abortion!

Pam knows about the pain of considering abortion.More than 21 years ago, she and her husband, Bob, were serving asmissionaries to the Philippines and praying for a fifth child. Pamcontracted amoebic dysentery, an infection of the intestine caused bya parasite found in a contaminated food or drink. She entered into acoma and was treated with strong antibiotics before they discoveredshe was pregnant. Doctors urged her to abort the baby for her ownsafety and told her that the medicines had caused irreversible damageto her baby. She refused the abortion and cited her Christian faith asthe reason for her hope that her son would be born without thedevastating disabilities physicians predicted.The doctors "didn't think of it as a life, they thought of it as amass of fetal tissue," Pam said.While pregnant, Pam nearly lost their baby four times but refused toconsider abortion. She recalled making a pledge to God with herhusband, "If you will give us a son, we'll name him 'Timothy,' andwe'll make him a preacher."Pam ultimately spent the last two months of her pregnancy in bed and,eventually, gave birth to a health baby boy August 14, 1987.Pam's youngest son is indeed a preacher. He preaches in prisons, makeshospital visits, and serves with his father's ministry in thePhilippines.He also plays football. Pam's son is Tim Tebow.
