Baltimore Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson blasted Planned Parenthood and abortion and the left is cringing!
In an interview for Turning Point Pregnancy Resource Center’s blog interview series, Warson spoke on a number of political issues, but left no doubt on his feelings about abortion, Planned Parenthood, and it’s 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, and it’s kind of ironic that it’s working,”, said Watson.
“We support candidates, and overwhelmingly support the idea of having Planned Parenthood and the like, and yet, that is why she [Sanger] created it,”
“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.”
Watson also said: “We sit here and talk about advancing the black agenda, whatever that means, we talk about our interests, and what’s important to us – like having political power and advancement and all those things – and then we are turning around and we are killing our children. And we are buying the lie that it’s our personal decision to make.
Watson recently wrote the book, Under Our Skin, about the racial divide in America.
Watson says “I’m Angry!”,”I’m embarrassed!”…. “But I’m hopeful!”
He asks, “Can it ever get better?”
I think it can and so does Watson! It will take some work! The black community needs to dump pessimistic leaders like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson who have spent decades telling them to cry in front off their hurdles and blame the world for their problems.
They need to embrace leaders like Watson who encourage them to jump their hurdles and take personal responsibility.
Then, and only then, will there be change!
