With the topic of abortion already a hot topic in America, head coach at the University of Michigan, Jim Harbaugh, received an enormous amount of backlash due to statements he made promoting Pro-life. 

It is a known fact that Jim Harbaugh is a devout Catholic. He admitted that his religion and pro-life stance have formed his most cherished relationships. “In God’s plan, each unborn human truly has a future filled with potential, talent, dreams and love. 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.”

The speech from the coach took place at the Plymouth Right to Life dinner on Sunday. Jim Harbaugh stated, “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. My faith and my science are what drives these beliefs in me,” Harbaugh continued by reading Jeremiah 1:5,  “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.”

Not long after the comments went public, the backlash started filling the comment section. “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 (sic) University of Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh and his anti-woman fundraising. He’s a public employee. Fire his a**.”

Another person wrote, “F*** Jim Harbaugh and everyone who believes this way. Forcing people to give birth is not courage.”

Well-known sports commentator Jemele Hill added, “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.”

If you don’t want to give birth, stop gambling with the chance of becoming pregnant. I wonder what causes this ,duh! Then you won’t need an abortion . Be responsible “birthing persons” and don’t get pregnant in the first place. Duh????

—- Can anyone of these detractors cite the precise, exact sources of abortion being the most basic right?

I have never had much use for Jim Harbaugh. He is too emotional on the field, and I get irritated when he makes those stupid faces when a call doesn’t go his way. That being said the fact that he stood up for his belief in the SCOTUS decision to give the states the right,, that they should have had all along, to approve abortions, and the terms by which one can be provided in their state. I may have been too hard on the boy.
