National Football League star Benjamin Watson has been an outspoken and unapologetic critic of abortion, which he deems the "most egregious social injustice of our time." Watson, an unapologetic Christian, is rejecting the fallacy that abortion is solely a "women's issue," and is calling on men to finally stand up and be the leaders they were created to be.
"[A]bortion will not end until men stand up for both the lives of the innocent and the mothers in crisis," declared the fierce tight end and author. "We cannot stay silent."
Pro-life organization Human Coalition has created an online source to combat the false perception that men have no right in the abortion argument, called AbortionExploitsWomen.com.
"Behind the calls for women's right to choose, gender equality, and female empowerment, lies the ugly truth that men have used abortion to subjugate and exploit women for decades," states the site. "Forty years after Roe v Wade, our culture believes abortion elevates women and men have no voice."
Sharing his perspective on the matter, Watson urged men to be the leaders they were created to be and finally take a stand for exploited women and innocent children.
“It is past time for men to be the leaders, caretakers and protectors they were created to be. As with many other social injustices, abortion will not end until men stand up for both the lives of the innocent and the mothers in crisis. While it has been attractively packaged by some, abortion is the most egregious social injustice of our time," said the Super Bowl champ. "This book, as well as the work of Human Coalition, has and will continue to play a vital role in encouraging men to understand, confront, and embrace their responsibility in righting this wrong during what has proved to be a very unpopular time to do so. We cannot remain silent.”
As noted by LifeNews, the campaign also features men who've been personally affected by abortion. Jeff Bradford of Human Coalition spoke of his experience, highlighting the need for men to be educated and informed on the fatal issue so they can be empowered to help end "the greatest holocaust of our day."
"My daughter, who would now be 25 years old, would be alive today if someone had stood in the gap for us," said Bradford. "This is why education, communication and resources to equip men to stand up for our sons and daughters are so vital. I believe God is calling men to be men and help lead the way to ending the greatest holocaust of our day.”
In August, Watson made headlines for calling out abortion mill Planned Parenthood's anti-black racist founding, which he says seems to be "working" today.
"I do know that blacks kind of represent a large portion of the abortions, and I do know that honestly the whole idea with Planned Parenthood and [founder Margaret] Sanger in the past was to exterminate blacks, and it’s kind of ironic that it’s working," Watson told Turning Point Pregnancy Center.
Watson also scolded the black community for buying into the racist plot by voting for candidates who advocate for Planned Parenthood. “We are buying it hook, line, and sinker,” he said.
"We support candidates, and overwhelmingly support the idea of having Planned Parenthood and the like, and yet, that is why [Sanger] created it," Watson added. "We are buying it hook, line, and sinker, like it’s a great thing. It’s just amazing to me and abortion saddens me, period, but it seems to be something that is really pushed on minorities and provided to minorities especially as something that they should do.”
