Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow said that he would rather be known for saving babies than winning Super Bowls during an anti-abortion event.

“It really does mean a lot more than winning the Super Bowl,” he said to a crowd at a football-themed banquet hosted by Kansans for Life earlier this month. “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?’ Are you going to say Super Bowl, or we saved a lot of babies?”

At one point in the speech, Tebow turned to people affiliated with the Super Bowl-winning Kansas City Chiefs football team who were in the audience and addressed their recent feat.

“It’s amazing,” Tebow said. “What an accomplishment! But you know the best part of that accomplishment is that it gets you an even bigger platform.”

Tim Tebow has been a longtime supporter of the anti-abortion movement, partly because he was almost aborted by his mother.
