University of Michigan Football Coach Jim Harbaugh Comes Out As Massively Pro-Life

University of Michigan football head coach Jim Harbaugh is the latest high-profile figure to weigh in on the Supreme Court’s decision last month to overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that legalized abortion throughout the country.

And he left no doubts that he is 100 percent pro-life, a view that, of course, drew outrage from pro-abortion fanatics.

“I believe in having the courage to let the unborn be born. I love life. I believe in having a loving care and respect for life and death,” he said over the weekend during remarks that the Plymouth Right to Life dinner and auction, reported.

“My faith and my science are what drives these beliefs in me. Quoting from Jeremiah, ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I set you apart. I appointed you as a prophet to the nations,'” Harbaugh added.

He also reportedly told those in attendance he was raised a Catholic and his pro-life views were instilled in him at a young age.

“In God’s plan, each unborn human truly has a future filled with potential, talent, dreams and love,” Harbaugh said, Fox News added. “I have living proof in my family, my children, and the many thousands that I’ve coached that the unborn are amazing gifts from God to make this world a better place. To me, the right choice is to have the courage to let the unborn be born.”

“I don’t think it’s coincidence, personally, living a faith-based life,” Harbaugh continued. “This is a message — this is something where, a time we grow in our faith. Having reverence and respect for God. You see people taking more a view of sanctity of life. I hope that continues — and not just in this time of crisis or pandemic.

“We talk about sanctity of life, yet we live in a society that aborts babies. There can’t be anything more horrendous,” he added.

David Hookstead of noted of Harbaugh’s view:

In an era where speaking up as pro-life gets you tarnished by the outrage mob, it’s great to see Harbaugh having the courage and conviction to take a stand.

Even though Big Ten and college football fans love to drag him, he’s authentic. In fact, I’d argue he’s one of the most authentic men in all of sports.

So, nobody should be surprised that he’s speaking his mind.

Needless to say, however, the pro-abortion outrage mob came for Harbaugh in a big way.

“This might be a difficult concept for Jim Harbaugh of any anti-choice person to grasp … but if you don’t want an abortion, just don’t get one. Not that hard,” liberal writer Jemele Hill noted on Twitter.

“No one who actively attempts to deny women their most basic rights should ever be allowed to hold a position of influence at a public university. That incudes University of Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh and his anti-woman fundraising. He’s a public employee. Fire his a**,” the Palmer Report tweeted, apparently unaware of our founding fundamental constitutional right of free speech and expression.

“It’s one thing to hold this personal view, if you can keep it separate from your actions. But to use your clout as a public employee go out and do fundraisers for groups that actively seek to deny women their most basic of rights, is a whole different ballgame,” the account added.

“It’s very easy for Jim Harbaugh to say this when he and folks like him can’t even find the courage to demand a society that doesn’t neglect a child after they’re born. Show me where Jim Harbaugh fights for children’s health care and education, and we can talk,” writer Charlotte Clymer added.

“Jim Harbaugh at a Right to Life dinner: ‘I love life. I believe in having a loving care & respect for life & death. My faith & my science are what drives these beliefs in me.’ Jim, you’re welcome to your own beliefs–but not your own science or *pushing your beliefs* on others,” Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, a public health physician in Detroit, stated.
