Matt Birk, the former center for the Minnesota Vikings and the Baltimore Ravens, proclaimed his support for women and unborn children this afternoon from the frosty dais of the March for Life.
Birk explained the reasons his family attended the 43rd annual right-to-life event in a brief, straightforward, heartfelt speech.
"We march, because I've never heard a woman give birth to a baby and say, 'I wish I had an abortion.' That is why we march," he said.
"I've never heard of a worker at a life clinic who decided to go work at an abortion clinic. That is why we march," he said.
Birk, who earned a degree in economics from Harvard, called grieving mothers recovering from an abortion "the real heroes" of the pro-life movement. "We love them, and we appreciate them," he said.
He also struck upon contemporary controversies, saying, "If black lives matter, lives in the womb matter."
