Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker is once again spitting out what some people might consider some inconvenient truths.

First, he offered a more detailed and nuanced underlying explanation for violence in society while discussing the deadly Super Bowl parade shooting that marred the city’s celebration last month.

Now, in an interview with EWTN News’ “In Depth”, Butker is offering up a refreshing take on who he believes are the most vulnerable people in our society today.

Harrison Butker On The Unborn

Butker had been asked by the interviewer about a tie he wore at the White House during last year’s Super Bowl celebration with the President.

That tie had the words “Vulnerari Praesidio” on it. That is a Latin term that translates to “Protect the most vulnerable.”

Who are the most vulnerable in Harrison Butker’s view?

“The unborn, to me, are the greatest victims of our society,” the NFL kicker said. “They don’t have a voice. They don’t necessarily look like humans. They’re not very big. They can’t fight for themselves. There’s not a lot of people that are fighting for them.”

“And I just think it’s a great atrocity that’s occurring in this country with massacring the unborn. I felt like there’s no better place to send this message than to the masses and to represent the unborn at a place like the White House where unfortunately their voice is not heard.”

Whether you agree or disagree with his point, Harrison Butker comes from a place of personal understanding.

Butker and his wife have reportedly experienced three miscarriages in their marriage.

Being quite obviously a strong supporter of family, Butker during the same interview suggested a lack of strong fathers leads to gang violence and, by extension, resulted in the parade shooting.

“I had to do a lot of thinking about what took place at the parade. I know that gun violence was a big discussion, but at the end of the day this is degenerative violence, and it should not be occurring,” he said.

He then pointed to the value of fathers.

“I think we need strong fathers in the home. We need men that are leading, that are setting good examples, that are teaching the young men in our society that violence is not the way to handle our disputes.”
