OVERLAND PARK, Kansas, February 21, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – While speaking to a large gathering of pro-lifers, former Denver Broncos quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow said that saving the unborn “really does mean a lot more than winning the Super Bowl.”
Tebow was at the Kansans for Life annual Valentine’s Day banquet held at the Overland Park Convention Center, attended by nearly 1,200 people, according to a report by National Right to Life News.
The master of ceremonies, Lamar Hunt Jr., co-owner of the Super Bowl LIV champion Kansas City Chiefs, kicked off the event saying:
I do not think it is a cliché to say we are in a life and death battle for the truth and authentic dignity of the human person. We need your full attention. You need to drop what you’re doing and join us, and this can be in so many ways: prayer, assistance to those in need, emails, phone calls, in-person meetings. Get educated about what we’re fighting about here. Really listen in and tune in.
When Tebow took to the podium, he thanked Hunt for “having courage in the face of a lot of other people who don’t have it and for your willingness to be up here and support this organization.”
“One day, when you look back and people are talking about you and they say, ‘Oh, my gosh, what are you going to be known for?” asked Tebow. “Are you going to say Super Bowl, or we saved a lot of babies?”
