NFL Football Player Responds to New York Abortion Law: ‘We are dying as a culture’
Wow. Surprising to see one of these NFL millionaires finally taking the side that actually promotes a culture of life and unity instead of one of division and death. But we’ll just let him say it in his own words.
“I watched in horror as many of you did as New York legislators cheered” – Ben Watson
Meanwhile you have Colin Kaepernick kneeling for the anthem citing ‘oppression.’ How are you oppressed? You make millions of dollars a year as an NFL football player why don’t you give all your money away to the people you say are oppressed? Yikes.
The Daily Wire reported that “NFL star Ben Watson has been unwavering in his defense of the unborn and promotion of family values throughout his fruitful career, which he retired from this past season. Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) over the weekend, the former New Orleans Saints player blasted New York’s recent decision to legalize abortion up to birth for any reason whatsoever.
“I watched in horror as many of you did as New York legislators cheered – like they were at the Super Bowl – when the bill passed to allow [the killing of babies] up until birth,” said Watson, according to LifeSiteNews. “I watched that in horror. Sixty million have been killed since Roe v. Wade.
“We always have to steer to the truth that life begins at conception,” he said. “We need to be ‘pro-whole life people.'”
Watson also stressed the importance of family. “Family is a gift, ordained by our creator,” he said. “It should be cherished, not mocked; upheld, not ridiculed; held together, not torn apart. The strength of our families will ensure our future, or it will condemn it.”
The retired NFL star also noted that the declining birth rate was contributing to Western decline. “We are dying as a culture,” he said, adding it will only improve “when people understand the importance of family.”
Watson quoted Psalm 127, which declares children to be a gift from God, even likening them to weapons against warriors.
