Former NFL star and pro-life advocate Benjamin Watson told Newsmax Friday that if the U.S. Supreme Court strikes down the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision and sends the abortion issue back to the states, both sides of the issue must enter a discussion with “courage” to bring about the best outcome for pregnant women, the men involved and the unborn children hanging in the balance.
“So much of what we hear is extreme right or extreme left. We rarely hear about the humanity of people involved, and I’m not just talking about the humanity of the child in the womb, (but) also the humanity of the mother. We have to talk about the humanity of people that don’t agree with us,” said Benjamin, whose foundation works with 45 crisis pregnancy centers, during “Spicer & Co.” Friday. “I mean, we have to be people who are willing to bridge that gap. And so when it comes to having a conversation, we have to enter this conversation with courage. We have to let down our guard. Sometimes we have to see that some people, although they stand on the other side of the aisle, (that) they care about life.”
Watson, a first-round draft pick for the New England Patriots who retired from the league in 2020 after 16 seasons, now works to spread Christian values of faith, truth, kindness, and justice, through his One More foundation, which supports several organizations, including pro-life organizations that provide help to pregnant women who choose giving birth instead of abortion, according to his website.
