NFL Star Calls out Planned Parenthood: “Eliminating Blacks is Working.”

LifeSiteNews — A professional football star is exposing Planned Parenthood’s origins in the racist views of founder Margaret Sanger.

“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 Sanger in the past was to exterminate blacks,” said Benjamin Watson, a tight end for the Baltimore Ravens, in an interview with the Turning Point Pregnant Resource Center in San Diego. “And it’s kind of ironic that it’s working.”

“We (as minorities) support candidates, and overwhelmingly support the idea of having Planned Parenthood and the like, and yet, that is why she created it. We are buying it hook, line, and sinker,” he said in part two of an interview with the pro-life center.

Watson has been married more than a decade and has five children. He calls himself a born again Christian and says his faith makes supporting the most vulnerable of God’s children his prerogative.

“If you are someone who cares about life period, then you have to care about it from conception all the way up to death,” he said. “To me, being pro-life means that you hold all life very dear and you understand that all life was created by God and that because of that, life has intrinsic value…”

He said he’s not alone in his views in the NFL, where some players “are believers or have views that I agree with, but they don’t want to talk about it in a public forum. One-on-one they’ll talk about it, but Twitter, Facebook, or authoring a book about a polarizing topic? They don’t want to touch it.”

He said society had lost the art of “learning how to respectfully disagree with each other.”

It was not the first time Watson weighed in on controversial issue. He called for calm after the Baltimore riots and addressed abortion in the past, as well.

He weighed in on the Planned Parenthood videos, writing on Facebook, “As horrific as it is, the issue isn’t really the sale of human parts. It’s the legal practice that allows this to even be a possibility. Killing children and simply discarding the leftovers is not any more acceptable than profiting off of them.”

Watson faced some backlash for his latest comments, although few disputed Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s ideological support for eugenics. She founded the “Negro Project,” hiring black preachers to convince their congregations to take birth control or get sterilized. Sanger wrote at one point that all citizens should be required to obtain a “birth permit” from the government before giving birth.

CBS Sports reported that “some might be surprised to hear Watson come out and say that eliminating blacks is ‘working.’” African-Americans have fallen behind Hispanics as the largest minority in the nation.

Yet he is not alone in sounding the alarm about the disproportionate impact abortion has on the African-American community.

“For every 1,000 black babies born alive, there are 1,100 aborted each year in” New York City said Ryan Bomberger of the Radiance Foundation in an interview published today at The Stream. “The black community is the only community where there are more induced deaths than births….yet ‘civil rights leaders,’ including the NAACP, call this deliberate destruction ‘reproductive justice.’”

We hope this article enlightened and inspired you to stand up for life.

Despite the overturning of Roe v. Wade, abortions are still prevalent in our nation. As a response to the overturning, the media: from the news to entertainment sources to even political figures and celebrities, have pushed abortion as an ongoing agenda, shaping the way this generation thinks and acts. Misinformation is being spread every day, and people are sadly believing the lies.

Our articles and stories aim to tell one thing: the truth.

We know that it is both a blessing and a challenge to understand the reality of abortion, because knowledge incites belief, and belief incites action. But we’re in this together. We believe that we can make abortion unthinkable.

With your support, we look forward to a future where young women are empowered to fight for their own rights: a right to bring life into the world, to be fearless leaders, to be examples of hope, strength, and undeterred resilience. We look forward to a future where life can happen.

If this article strengthened your belief to reach women everywhere with the truth and to let life happen, then please consider helping us extend our reach by making a gift right now. Your gift of just $10 or $20 helps our mission to create a story of hope and empowerment for every woman facing an unplanned pregnancy.

We aim to create a culture that views “pro-life” as equivalent to having empathy and compassion, providing holistic care (before and beyond pregnancy) and education, and most importantly, choosing to speak and act in love. We are pro-life, pro-love, pro-woman, pro-solution.

Don’t just be part of the movement, be part of the solution, and give today.
