Kicker: Applying Christian faith

MARY REICHARD, HOST: Pro-football player Ben Watson of the New Orleans Saints has become well-known for applying his Christian faith to everything—from race relations to fatherhood.

WATSON: We as men must stand up for the lives of the innocent and their mothers in crisis.

That was Watson speaking at this year’s March for Life in Washington D.C.

But he doesn’t just talk about his pro-life beliefs. When the ultrasound at a pregnancy care center in Maryland started acting up—Watson stepped in.

Life News reports he bought the clinic a brand-new, state-of-the-art 3D/4D ultrasound machine. It now serves the 7-thousand women who visit each year.

While touring the clinic, Watson saw first hand what an ultrasound machine can do: He met a 10-year-old boy whose mom chose life after seeing an ultrasound at the clinic. Watson spent time talking with him about what it means to be a Christian man.
