It’s rare that a celebrity or professional athlete boldly speaks out on a hot-button issue like abortion.
However, Baltimore Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson did just that in a recent interview reported by the Washington Times:
“In a wide-ranging interview on the racial climate in America, Baltimore Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson brought up Planned Parenthood’s founding, saying the organization was created to ‘exterminate blacks.’
“Mr. Watson said black support for Planned Parenthood is ‘ironic,’ given that the organization was founded by eugenicist Margaret Sanger in order to control ‘unfit’ populations.
“‘I do know that blacks kind of represent a large portion of 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,’ he said in an interview with Turning Point Pregnancy Resource Center.
“‘We support candidates, and overwhelmingly support the idea of having Planned Parenthood and the like, and yet, that is why she created it,’ he added. ‘We are buying it hook, line and sinker, like it’s a great thing.'”
We applaud Ben Watson for having the guts to say what he said about Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood. It’s uncomfortable for liberals and under-informed Americans to hear this, but it’s the truth. Planned Parenthood was never about ‘family planning,’ but about eugenics and trying to eliminate the black population.
