New Orleans tight end, Benjamin Watson, is a pro-life advocate who, off the field, helps out at pregnancy centers.
At Maryland’s Severna Park Pregnancy Clinic, the ultra-sound machine was long-lived and malfunctioning, so Watson stepped in, Life News reported.
He replaced it with “a new, state-of-the-art 3D/4D ultrasound machine,” which provides “vital knowledge for the 7,000 women who call them each year, most of whom start out asking, ‘How much are your abortions?’”

In 2016, Watson called out Planned Parenthood for targeting minorities for abortions, Life News reported.
Discussing how racial divide impacts abortions in the U.S., Watson said, “… abortion saddens me period, but it seems to be something that is really pushed on minorities and provided to minorities especially as something that they should do.”
“We sit here and talk about advancing the black agenda, whatever that means, we talk about our interests, and what’s important to us – like having political power and advancement and all those things – and then we are turning around and we are killing our children,” Watson said. “And we are buying the lie that it’s our personal decision to make.”
Watson has also shared his desire to empower fathers.

During his time at the pregnancy center, Watson talked one-on-one with a 10-year-old boy about what it means to be a Christian man.
He also heard stories of lives affected by the ultrasound machines. One client told Watson the ultrasound saved his whole family, they “were on a self-destructive path of addiction until they saw their pre-born daughter on the screen.”
