New England Patriots player Benjamin Watson has always been vocal about his pro-life beliefs, so it’s no surprise the tight end is producing a new pro-life documentary.
Watson, who is also partially financing the documentary, interviews 30 Americans in the film, who are on both sides of the aisle. The film features a few different prominent figures, including former presidential candidate and neurosurgeon Ben Carson as well as Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“My goal is to unveil the truth about abortion, the laws, the history and where our country is headed,” Watson told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview. “I believe in the sanctity of life, be it in the womb or on your deathbed. That’s my conviction. But with the film, I’ll engage those who disagree and hear their reasoning. The number one thing I’m looking for is empathy on both sides.”
