February 22, 2021, DALLAS — Human Coalition announced today the hiring of Super Bowl champion and pro-life activist Benjamin Watson as its Vice President of Strategic Relationships. In this role, Watson will serve as an ambassador for the organization, cultivating relationships with potential partners and legislators in key states. Previously, Watson served on Human Coalition’s Advisory Board.
“Whether on the football field or at his home with his seven kids, Benjamin works hard and excels at whatever he does,” said Human Coalition President Jeff Bradford. “Human Coalition is blessed to have him as part of our team, and we are eager to see how God continues to use him in our mission to transform our culture of death into a culture of life.”
Watson played 16 seasons in the NFL and won a Super Bowl with the New England Patriots. After retirement, Watson and his wife, Kirsten, released their first movie, Divided Hearts of America, a documentary featuring interviews with over 30 individuals on both sides of the abortion debate. They now host a popular podcast called “Why or Why Not With The Watsons” where they discuss everything from keeping the spark in your love story to how to talk to your kids about race. Watson is a frequent guest on radio and TV, often offering insights into football alongside commentary on abortion, race and religious persecution worldwide.
“I joined Human Coalition because its dedication to the cause of human dignity is evident in both word and deed,” said Watson. “While they’re drafting and promoting legislation and speaking into culture on this issue, they’re also on the ground helping women in crisis and preborn children in peril through their women’s clinics. I am honored to spread the word about the good work that they are doing.”
Human Coalition operates seven Brick-and-Mortar Women’s Clinics in Cleveland, Atlanta, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Pittsburgh, Raleigh and Charlotte. These also offer telecare. In addition, they have two exclusive Telecare Women’s Clinics — one serving the entire state of Texas and the other in Chicago — which are staffed with professional nurses and social workers trained to execute best practices in patient care. In 2020 — amidst a pandemic — Human Coalition served a total of 44,131 women with 202,280 different services provided and 4,150 life decisions made. Human Coalition offers a wide array of services ranging from pregnancy tests to financial assistance and housing to education and job training.
