NFL Star Benjamin Watson Confronts Alyssa Milano Over Abortion

Actress Alyssa Milano was one of the first celebrities to publicly demonize the state of Alabama over a new pro-life bill that bans abortions at any stage of pregnancy, without exceptions for rape and incest. Actually, she's gone a step further than most by suggesting a "sex strike," a campaign against men she said would persist “until we get bodily autonomy back.” The actress backed off on that directive following heaps of insults, even from liberal activists. But she claimed she succeeded in getting the country talking "about the GOP’s undeniable war on women."

In a recent conversation with CNN's Chris Cuomo, Milano insisted this fight is not about semantics because "everyone is pro-life."

"I don't think there's a woman on the planet who is not pro-life," she said. "Nobody wants to get an abortion. Nobody. We are all pro-life."

"Just because there are women that don't believe in abortion, don't take away someone else's right," she pleaded with pro-lifers.

Professional football player Benjamin Watson, who retired following his stint with the New Orleans Saints only to be picked up by the New England Patriots, is a proud pro-life activist. He directly responded to Milano on Twitter.

Watson also had the perfect comeback for Milano's criticism over her complaint it was all men who voted for the pro-life bill. Well, using that logic, what about the group that voted for the 1973 ruling Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion?

He addressed the feud on Fox News Monday morning. While he strongly disagrees with the actress, Watson appreciated that he and Milano were able to at least "have a dialogue."

"She has certain convictions and I have mine," he noted. 

His convictions tell him that no matter the stage of an unborn baby's development, "they are human just as we are."

Missouri Gov. Mike Parson gave Milano another reason to protest. On Friday he signed a bill to ban abortions on or beyond the eighth week of pregnancy - making exceptions for medical emergencies, but again, no exceptions for cases of rape or incest.

More states are planning to pursue similar bills.

On the other side of the debate, pro-lifers could easily accuse pro-abortion advocates of pursuing radical measures of their own.
