Shoving Bran out the window was a pretty horrible thing. People may rationalize it, using his "the things I do for love" quote as a sign he did it for Cersei, but we don't really know what he was thinking at the time.
What Jaime did pushing Bran out the window did more than just protect him and Cersei; it protected the lives of his three children.
I'm sorry, but anyone who wouldn't do anything to protect the lives of their 3 children and the kids' mother, even if it meant killing another man's child doesn't truly love their children. I would even say that person does not deserve having children if they would let their own kids die for the sake of one child of another person. Blood comes first.
I don't have a kid myself, but I have a precious 6 year old niece. If saving her life meant I had to kill another kid, you better well damned believe that other kid is a goner. Sorry, but my blood, those I love, comes WAY before anyone else.
It is beyond doubt that if Bran had told Ned and later King Robert about what he had seen in the tower, it would have meant five lives lost (Tommen, Myrcella, Joffrey, Cersei and yes Jaime). Is Bran's life any more valuable than Myrcella's or Tommen's? No, it isn't. All life is valuable and equal, but two lives (let alone 5) is more valuable than one.
