Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh, who's made it clear he's anti-abortion, told ESPN over the weekend that he and his wife will raise the baby should a member of his family or team have an unplanned pregnancy that they can't handle.
“I’ve told (them) the same thing I tell my kids, boys, the girls, same thing I tell our players, our staff members," Harbaugh said. "I encourage them if they have a pregnancy that wasn’t planned, to go through with it, go through with it. Let that unborn child be born, and if at that time, you don’t feel like you can care for it, you don’t have the means or the wherewithal, then (wife) Sarah and I will take that baby.”
Harbaugh talked to ESPN's Gene Wojciechowski during a Sunday interview in Muskegon during the team's summer tour of the state.
Harbaugh, a practicing Catholic, also told ESPN:
"Faith, family, football ... those are my priorities. I just think that ... the abortion issue is one that's so big that it needs to be talked about. It needs serious conversation. What do you think? What do I think? What do others think?"
