The ruling to overturn abortion by the Supreme Court caused a mountain of backlash from Democrats and pro-choice activists. And that backlash continues to be seen today. But for head coach of the University of Michigan, Jim Harbaugh, his stance has always been the same. To protect the life of unborn children. Recently, the coach gave a passionate speech about saving unborn children and how he was willing to adopt any unwanted child from his players or staff. 

Appearing on ESPN this week with Gene Wojciechowski, Jim Harbaugh said, “I’ve told [them] the same thing I tell my kids, boys, the girls, same thing I tell our players, our staff members. I encourage them if they have a pregnancy that wasn’t planned, to go through with it, go through with it. Let that unborn child be born, and if at that time, you don’t feel like you can care for it, you don’t have the means or the wherewithal, then Sarah and I will take that baby.”

For some time, Harbaugh has fought for the life of the unborn. On July 17, he stated at a fundraiser, “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 drive these beliefs in me.” The coach even read 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 shying away from the tensions surrounding Roe v. Wade, Harbaugh called the entire process messy but welcoming. “Passions can make the process messy, but when combined with respect, it ultimately produces the best outcomes. This process has been passionate and messy, but I have faith in the American people to ultimately develop the right policies and laws for all lives involved. I recognize one’s personal thinking regarding morality of a particular action may differ from their thinking on whether government should make that action illegal. There are many things one may hold to be immoral, but the government appropriately allows because of some greater good or personal or constitutional right.”

Jim Harbaugh ended his speech, declaring, “Yes, there are conflicts between the legitimate rights of the mother and the rights of the unborn child. One resolution might involve incredible hardship for the mother, family and society. Another results in the death of an unborn person.”
