What We Wish Tim Tebow Would Have Said At National Prayer Breakfast

February 4, 2010

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: Rebekah Spicuglia, Media Director Women's Media Center (office) 212-563-0680; (cell) 415-290-2970 February 4, 2010 (New York, NY) - Tim Tebow shared the stage with President Obama today at the National Prayer Breakfast. We have listened all week to comments from Focus on the Family about how they want to “raise the debate” regarding women’s reproductive health decisions. Today’s  breakfast was a perfect opportunity for Mr. Tebow to begin a more meaningful and inclusive dialogue about family and faith. Toward that goal, here’s what the Women’s Media Center would have liked to hear: "My interpretation of Scripture is probably different than yours, and that’s okay because one of the great things about America is that we believe in religious freedom. I bet we all agree that we need to come together to reduce teen and unwanted pregnancies and abortions. The key to achieving this common goal is educating our youth about making good choices. They deserve the opportunity to fulfill the role God intended for them and to become parents when they are ready to be good parents. I sure don’t know what is in the mind of God, but I do know that the government should not intrude in a couple’s decision about when or how to have a family. This is a difficult personal and moral decision that should be left to a woman, her doctor, and her God."
