WATCH: Tim Tebow tells powerful story about his mom choosing to “trust God” at March for Life event

During an emotional appearance a the virtual 2021 March for Life event, former NFL player Tim Tebow said his mother decided to “trust God” even when her doctor urged her to have an abortion.

“There were so many setbacks and heartaches,” Tebow said ” butthe whole time she continued to trust God. Then it came time to give birth. The doctor, who had been doing it for over 35 years and this was his specialty, helping women to give birth and he helped deliver that baby.”

“In over 35 years of doing it, he looked at her and said of all my years, this is the greatest miracle that I have ever seen because I have no idea how he survived: the placenta is not attached and there’s so many different issues,” he continued “and I don’t know how he had the nourishment and the food to be able to survive. This is a miracle baby.”

“Here is your baby, Mrs. Tebow. And that day, I got to meet my mom, and I’m so grateful that my mom gave me a chance at life, because many times could she have made the choice to do something different. But because of her pro-life story, I now get to share my story,” Tebow added.
