Pam Tebow became known as an anti-abortion advocate after a much-talked-about commercial during the Super Bowl in 2010.
She'll tell her story about the issue and a harrowing pregnancy at the third annual Breakfast for Life, a benefit on Saturday for Essential Pregnancy Services. More than 500 people are expected to attend the event at the Omaha Community Playhouse.
Tebow and husband Bob were living in the Philippines when she was carrying her fifth child, Tim, the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner who now is a quarterback for the NFL's New England Patriots. She got dysentery and doctors advised her to have an abortion. She refused.
Essential Pregnancy Services provides counseling, education and material goods for parents who face unplanned pregnancies. The nonprofit agency is nearly 40 years old.
The breakfast begins at 8:30 a.m., and Tebow will speak at 9:45. Tickets are available by calling 402-554-0121 or online at www.essentialps.org.
