Cancel Culture Strikes Again, This Time Due to Jim Harbaugh’s Views on Abortion – Opinion

Jim Harbaugh (Michigan football coach) is getting attention from Twitter following his speech at Right to Life’s Plymouth event.

Harbaugh was brave enough to tell the audience why he supports life at this event:

“I believe in having the courage to let the unborn be born … I love life. My belief is in loving and respecting life and death. This belief is a result of my faith and my science. Quoting from Jeremiah, ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were ever born, I made you distinct. I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.’”

Harbaugh explained to the crowd that he was raised Catholic and had his pro-life beliefs instilled from an early age.

“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.”

Harbaugh’s comments come weeks after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. After his comments, the left started to attack him, saying that any person who is against their beliefs shouldn’t be entitled to the First Amendment. Below are just some examples.

Many people went so far as to call for Harbaugh’s firing, just because Harbaugh wanted to voice his opinions and clarify where he stood on the subject.

Outkick founder Clay Travis tweeted in support of Harbaugh’s comment:

Harbaugh discussed his pro-life views during a National Review interview in 2020. Harbaugh spoke of the silver lining that he saw in the pandemic and how he considered it a divine message.

“I don’t think it’s coincidence, personally, living a faith-based life … This is a message — this is something where, a time we grow in our faith. Reverence and respect for God. It is more common to see people embracing the sacredness 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.”

It seems that this precedent is being set that far-left extremists have the right to do and say whatever they wish, but that anyone disagreeing with them, or daring to voice their opinions on any topic the extremists don’t agree with, will be called out, criticised and canceled.

Starting their season, the Michigan Wolverines take on Colorado State September 3.
