In an interview on ESPN, head coach of the Michigan Wolverines Jim Harbaugh said “let’s discuss it” – referring to his pro-life views.
“I believe in having the courage to let the unborn be born. I love life. I believe in having a loving care and respect for life and death. My faith and my science are what drives these beliefs in me.”
His comments came after he was criticized for previously sharing his stance as keynote speaker at Plymouth Right to Life event on July 17th nearby the University of Michigan.
“I’ve told them the same thing I tell my kids, boys, the girls, same thing I tell our players, our staff members. I encourage them if they have a pregnancy that wasn’t planned, to go through with it, go through with it.”
Raised Catholic, he shared how he has told his family, players, and staff if they can’t take care of a baby from an unplanned pregnancy he and his wife would.
“Let that unborn child be born, and if at that time, you don’t feel like you can care for it, you don’t have the means or the wherewithal, then Sarah and I will take that baby.
Any player on our team, any female staff member or any staff member or anybody in our family or our extended family that doesn’t feel like after they have a baby they can take care of it, we got a big house. We’ll raise that baby.”
His wife Sarah also shared her own thoughts at the Right to Life event.
“I have friends, even family, who have considered abortion or had an abortion, and I know they are not better for it. If we had more support for women, more people who knew what really happens, we would be in a different place on this issue.”
🙏 Pray for Jim Harbaugh and his family!
