To be a Tebow Birther, or not to be a Tebow Birther: that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them?
According to an article on Alan.com, Attorney Gloria Allred Says Tim Tebow’s Mom is telling a lie in the upcoming Super Bowl Ad:
This story[the declined abortion of Tim Tebow], says Allred, is made up.
One… fact [is] that the act of abortion is totally illegal in the majority Catholic country of the Philippines – under all circumstances including rape and incest, and even without a provision in the circumstance that the mother’s life is in danger. The law has been in effect since 1930.
Allred says she believes it an impossible scenario to believe that Philippino[sic] doctors would of ever suggested abortion as a viable option for Tebow in the first place. And when you learn that physicians and midwives who perform abortions in the Philippines face six years in prison, and may have their licenses suspended or revoked, and that women who receive abortions – no matter the reason – may be punished with imprisonment for two to six years, it’s easy to see why.
see the rest of the article here.
Allred wrote a letter to CBS President Les Moonves in a Tebow Birther Tactic to get the Ad blocked. That letter can be found: here.
Ok, so Allred proved she knows how to use Wikipedia which has an article on: Abortions in the Philippines.
Did she stop there? finding a “proof”? …or did she continue her research but omitted other facts?
Such as THIS from:
Although abortion is illegal in the Philippines, there are reports that it frequently occurs. According to estimates of the Alan Guttmacher Institute, 401,000 abortions occurred in 1994 (possible range: 320,000-481,000) at a rate of 25 per 1000 women aged 15-44. It was estimated at 5.1% of the women were hospitalized for abortion complications.(11)
Despite its illegality, there has been some limited study of abortion in the Philippines. One study interviewed 200 women between February, 1993 and June 1993 who reported with complications of induced abortion at Dr. Fabella Hospital and Philippine General Hospital. Twenty-six percent (26%) were age 24 and below, 27% were age 25-29, 31% were age 30-34, and 16% were age 35 and above. Seventy-three percent (73%) were married, 19% were in union, and 7% were single; 45% were not working and 55% were working. The educational level of the women was 8% primary education, 49% secondary education, and 43% higher education. Eighty-nine percent had at least one child and 30% of the married women had five or more children; thirty-five percent had used contraceptives, 74% said they did not want a child, 13% were undecided if they wanted a child, 12% said they wanted a child after 2 years, and 1% said they wanted a child as soon as possible. Despite having had an abortion, the women generally believed that abortion was not justified. The reasons where postabortion women believed that abortion was justified are described in Table 1.
Table 1 Attitude of Philippine women Toward Abortion
Who Were Treated for Postabortion Complications — 1993
Reason for Abortion Percent Who Agreed Abortion
Was Justified in Given Situation
Pregnancy results from rape 57% Pregnancy Bad for Woman’s Health 10% Woman is Unmarried 4% Woman is in School 4% Man is in School 4% Fetus is Deformed 46% Woman Has No Money But Has Many Children 16% Last Child is Too Young 6% Timing of Pregnancy is Wrong 13% Pregnancy is Result of Incest 71% Pregnancy is Result of Infidelity 16%
Some 89% of the women said it was difficult or very difficult to obtain an abortion. Abortions were obtained through a secret referral system involving a network of close friends or relatives. Abortions were performed by doctors and other paramedics, including nurses as well as self-acclaimed abortionists, including traditional healers. Abortions were also self-induced or performed by a close friend of the woman. The methods described to procure the abortion were bitter concoctions; assorted herbal medicines, excessive weight or pressure on the uterus and catheter insertion into the uterus. The average cost of the abortion was $35.
