NFL player,Ben Watson, says Planned Parenthood created to ‘exterminate’ African-Americans

Ben Watson has never been afraid to share his views, and while his take on the Michael Brown and Freddie Gray cases has been largely celebrated, he is stirring up a new kind of controversy over his claims about Planned Parenthood.

During an interview with the Turning Point Pregnancy Resource Center, Watson was asked if he felt that race had any impact on abortion, and he tore into Planned Parenthood in his response.

“I wouldn’t say I have any unique insight,” Watson said. “I do know that blacks kind of represent a large portion of the abortions, and I do know that honestly the whole idea with Planned Parenthood and [Margaret] Sanger in the past was to exterminate blacks, and it’s kind of ironic that it’s working.”

He went on to describe a double standard for minority girls who get pregnant as opposed to white girls.

“In the public, it seems to be painted that when minorities get pregnant they need to get abortions, especially when it comes to teen pregnancy,” Watson said. “It’s like when black girls are pregnant, it’s like a statistic, but when white girls get pregnant, they get a TV show.”

He partially blamed men for the problem for not sticking around as well.

“(A) lot of the women wouldn’t be having abortions if the men would step up and be a part of what they are already biologically a part of,” Watson wrote on Facebook on Friday.
