Watson also added that men need to provide for women in a way that makes the seeking of an abortion non-existent because of the support the men provide.
Former New Orleans Saints tight end Benjamin Watson called on men to “step up” and prevent more abortions by fulfilling their responsibilities, during a Wednesday night appearance on “The Story With Martha MacCallum.”
Debate over the issue of abortion was reinvigorated recently when New York state passed a law that loosened restrictions last month. The bill expands abortion access and codifies a woman’s right to abort under state law. Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam made comments supportive of a similar bill in Virginia last week.
President Donald Trump also talked about late-term abortions in his Tuesday night State of the Union address.
“There could be no greater contrast to the beautiful image of a mother holding her infant child than the chilling displays our nation saw in recent days,” Trump said.
