And Doug, guess who is celebrating after Obama's 1st 100 days (hint, it is not unborn babies)?
Read Obama's 100 Days of Death by Jill Stanek.
Living in the Philippines as missionaries, Pam and her husband, Bob, who now heads the Bob Tebow Evangelistic Association, had been told the baby she was carrying needed to be aborted because she had complications due to medication used for an amoeba infection.
“They didn’t recommend; they didn’t really give me a choice,” Tebow said. “That was the only option they gave me.”
At the same time doctors were telling her to have an abortion, Bob Tebow had been out preaching in the field. “He was so burdened about abortions taking place in America,” Tebow recalled.
“Lord, if you give us another son, then we’ll raise him to be a preacher,” Tebow recalls her husband praying. And so, with four little children and their parents heads bowed, the Tebow family prayed for a miracle.
“We all prayed for Timmy by name,” Tebow said. “It was a very serious prayer. We prayed that God would give us a Timothy.
“It was just amazing that God spared him, but we knew God has His hand on his life” Tebow said. “We all, through all these years, have told Timmy that.”
Tebow said she and her husband have told all of their children they are special and God has a “special” plan for their lives. Tim’s situation, however, was more intense because of the less predictable outcome.
“I guess it was a little more dramatic because we saw the miracle of Timmy’s birth and we continually reminded him, God has a special plan for your life,” Tebow said.
“It was sweet, it was a really a great beginning because you know when something is hard to come by, you value it so much,” Tebow said. “We value all our children, but all of our children value Timmy because they’d all had a part in praying for him.
“He is a well-loved kid,” Tebow said.
And it’s likely that security, fostered by a loving and caring family—along with a hearty dose of God-given talent—that’s allowed the young man to flourish as a leader both on the football field and on the mission field.
“Whether it’s fighting for the National Championship or fighting to see the Gospel brought to a country where people have never heard the name of Christ—I think that’s what probably has made him a good leader, that he’s passionate and that he’s not afraid to stand alone,” his mom said.
Tebow said she’s thought about Tim in the context of being the youngest child and how typically younger children follow their elders, but thinks the notion that he was raised very securely has helped him to develop into the strong leader he is.
Heisman Trophy Winner Tim Tebow Could Have Been a Victim of Abortion

Congrats to Tim Tebow for winning the Heisman!
And God bless his mother for supporting life!
University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow became the first sophomore in the history of the NCAA to win the coveted Heisman Trophy as the best football player in the nation. However, Tebow's accomplishments may never have been supported has his mother followed a doctor's recommendation to have an abortion.
With 29 passing touchdowns and 22 rushing touchdowns, Tebow displayed the kind of versatility that has become more valued at the quarterback position.
Pam Tebow and her husband were Christian missionaries in the Philippines in 1985 and they prayed for "Timmy" before she became pregnant.
Unfortunately, as the Gainesville Sun reports, Pam entered into a coma after she contracted amoebic dysentery, an infection of the intestine caused by a parasite found in a contaminated food or drink.
The treatment for the medical condition would require strong medications that doctors told Pam had caused irreversible damage to Tim -- so they advised her to have an abortion.
As the Sun reported, Pam Tebow refused the abortion and cited her Christian faith as the reason for her hope that her son would be born without the devastating disabilities physicians predicted.
In a very close decision, Carrie Tomko won the 3rd Annual Margaret Sanger at the Klan Rally Art Contest. This was Carrie's winning entry:
Ms. Margaret and the Klan
There once was a woman named Margaret,
Who made Negro babies her target.
She longed to see less of them,
Courted the death of them,
Sanger, this woman named Margaret.
The wives of the Klansmen who meet
Disguised in voluminous sheet,
Gave her their attention
At secret convention
To learn of her childless technique.
Ms. Sanger was poorly impressed.
Elementary they are she confessed.
So childlike she found them,
Dumbed her talk down for them,
Sanger their arrogant guest.
The organization she ran
Has snuffed out more blacks than the Klan,
Yet people aren't frighted,
But rather delighted,
Embracing the Parenthood Planned.
The judges were greatly impressed by all the entries. Fellow judge, Jill Stanek, noted, "I could tell contestants worked hard to incorporate your theme. Very creative lot!"
A very, very close second place (and winner of the reader poll!) was Chris Chan and his poweful short play, "The Killed Story."
Third place went to Bill Hailey and his terrific poem, "Such a Loving Margaret Sanger." Be sure to check out more of Bill's work (and link to it!) at his blog, "Bill's Big Blog" - - great stuff!
Thanks also went to The Catholic Caveman and the unknown writer of Haikus for their strong entries.
Special thanks to our 2007 Margaret Sanger Art Contest judges, Sean Dailey and Jill Stanek.
The Contest is sponsored annually by the Truth About Margaret Sanger Blogspot.

The Irish had the nerve to vote "no" on the 287 pages of gobbledygook called the Lisbon Treaty. But fanatical Eurocrats, eager to take what's left of sovereignty from Europe's nations, won't let democracy stop them.
Many centuries ago, Irish monks saved Europe from itself by preserving the moral and intellectual foundations of civilization. Unfortunately, the continental powers are unlikely to let the Irish save Europe from itself a second time.
But will this be like an American school levy, where they will put it on the ballot every three months for a vote, and use our tax dollars to promote, until after seven tries and seven defeats...it finally passes and there are no more votes on the issue.
There are plenty of sites where you can read lots of truth about Sanger.
I've linked to a few in that last paragraph, but I really want to draw your
attention to one that I found while researching this article: The Truth About Margaret Sanger. It's a terrific single-focus blog with lots of well-researched information and links. I highly recommend that you go check it out. I intend to spend some quality time in their archives over the next few days. My favourite part so far
is a quiz where you try to guess whether a quote is from Sanger or a noted white supremacist.
A couple weeks ago, a tantalizing, but dubious rumor surfaced about the
existence of a videotape of Michelle Obama delivering an anti-"Whitey"
rant at Trinity United Church (the Church that Obama finally threw under the bus yesterday, now that a sufficient number of years of evidence of its craziness
have piled up to convince him to take an inspiringly principled stand against
Larry Johnson, the same person who originated the tale of Michelle's tape,
now says he'll post "new and dramatic" news about the video tomorrow
