Pro-choice mob tries to block Pam Tebow from sharing her dangerous choice to keep Tim. Pam is scheduled to talk about the abortion recommendation in a Superbowl ad and her detractors call her a liar because, it is improbable for the doctor to suggest an abortion - an illegal procedure where they were, the Philippines.
While I am unaware of the facts behind Pam's medical case, I know that in Catholic moral theology, there is the principle of double-effect where some actions may be considered moral even if they have two effects - one good and the other evil. For example, operating on a cancerous uterus would kill the fetus attached to it or taking metronidazole can have the side-effect of a miscarriage. So, that is the context where Catholic doctors might have advised "abortion". It is not exactly "abortion" that was recommended but a procedure that can have that side-effect. It is a subtle difference but it is one that is consistent to the condemnation of abortion in all cases.
Update from an intro to her speech at Louisville Women's Ministries.
More than 21 years ago, she and her husband, Bob, were serving as missionaries to the Philippines and praying for a fifth child. Pam became ill and was treated with strong antibiotics before discovering she was pregnant. Doctors urged her to abort the baby for her own safety. She refused.
Update from Gainesville Sun.
Just before her pregnancy, Pam fell into a coma after contracting amoebic dysentery, a bacteria transmitted through contaminated drinking water. During her recovery, she received a series of strong medications. And even though she discontinued the regimen when she discovered the pregnancy, doctors told Pam the fetus had been damaged. "They thought I should have an abortion to save my life from the beginning all the way through the seventh month," she recalled. In her seventh month of pregnancy, Pam traveled to the country's capital, Manila, where she received around-the-clock care from an American-trained physician.
