New Orleans Saints tight end Ben Watson expressed disgust over reports that Planned Parenthood harvests organs from aborted babies.
Well, actually, Watson isn’t a fan of Planned Parenthood – period.
“As horrific as it is, the issue isn’t really the sale of human parts,” Watson wrote on Facebook. “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. #PlannedParenthood.”
Watson, a University of Georgia-graduate, is one of the smartest players in the NFL. At the 2004 NFL Scouting Combine, he scored a 48 out of 50 on the Wonderlic IQ Test. It’s one of the highest scores ever recorded.
Watson, also a devout Christian, made news in March when his Facebook post on ISIS went viral.
“As I sit here in a 21st century United States, I can’t help but wonder when we too will face martyrdom for our faith,” Watson wrote on Facebook. “On this very day nearly 50 countries have laws that restrict or outlaw Christianity, leading to the harassment, imprisonment, and death of those who follow Christ.
“The images keep flooding our timelines and news feeds,” he wrote on Feb. 28. “Men being burned alive or beheaded by masked assassins. Stories of families on the run, fleeing their homes while they are pillaged and burned. Their testimonies hold a familiar chord. ‘Convert, Pay or Die!’”
Now that he’s taken on Planned Parenthood and Radical Islam, Watson has likely upset the PC Police on two fronts. But he’s such a principled man, he likely doesn’t care.
