NFL Star: Margaret Sanger’s Plan to Exterminate Blacks is Working — But Faith is a Step Toward Healing

By Nancy Flory Published on August 5, 2016

Benjamin Watson, a NFL tight end now with the Baltimore Ravens, said in an interview with Turning Point that minorities are buying into the idea of abortion, “hook, line and sinker,” which is ironic, he said, because Planned Parenthood and founder Margaret Sanger’s plan “to exterminate blacks … [is] working.”

Watson discussed how minorities make up the majority of abortions, adding, “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. And we are buying the lie that it’s our personal decision to make.”

Men should be a big part of raising their child, he said, because “as much as he has a role in making the baby in the first place, it needs to take both of them the whole way through. Any idea that a man doesn’t have a role in it is not true, and is simply more about politics and making a man’s life easier.”

Watson recalls how he gave advice in the locker room to a teammate who had just found out that his girlfriend was pregnant. “My whole speech to him was encouraging him about what an awesome opportunity it is to raise a child, to give the child a home, to love that child, and that God entrusted him with another life, and what a responsibility and the privilege that is. And then being real and saying, ‘Look, it’s not going to be easy. There are going to be some sacrifices that are going to come.’”

He admitted that it isn’t easy to be a good father and that he falls short all the time. But the man’s duty is to “be there for their child, and for the baby’s mother … we need to be the provider, be a priest, a protector for them, so that they get a little glimpse of the sacrificial love of the heavenly Father.”

“I tell them they’re never going to be a perfect dad because no one is,” Watson said. “But we have a perfect Father to model ourselves after … my job as a father is to be the best example of our heavenly Father as I earthly can.”

Watson’s new book, Under Our Skin, looks at race, bias and justice and “appeals to the power and possibility of faith as a step toward healing.”
