Fresh off of his College Football Playoff National Championship win over the Washington Huskies, Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh participated in the 2024 March for Life, which took place in Washington D.C. on Friday (Jan. 19).

Harbaugh, who has said in the past that he does not fear getting canceled for being pro-life, not only marched alongside fellow pro-lifers but also addressed those who braved the cold and snow.

“Thank you all for being here. It’s a great example that you’re setting. It’s testimony for the sanctity of life,” Harbaugh told the crowd. “It’s a great day for a march! It’s a great day! This is football weather. Let’s go!”

The former San Francisco 49ers head coach then introduced retired NFL tight end, Super Bowl Champion, and pro-life advocate Benjamin Watson to the stage.

Harbaugh described Watson as a “talented, courageous, fearless leader” and praised him for making a difference in so many people’s lives. Harbaugh said that Watson is a person who speaks “truth” with “clarity, and grace” by combining his “bold conviction with kindness.” Harbaugh added that Watson is “fearless, humble, courageous, a proud father of the Watson seven, and a helpful warrior for the sanctity of life.”

During a March for Life interview with Jon Root, Harbaugh said that it is “incredible to be here today and see the testimony of so many that are here.”

Harbaugh also shared that 70 Michigan Wolverines players got baptized this season and credited the mini-revival to the faith of the players and their parents, as well as to the team’s coaches and staff. “There’s a spiritual mission to our team,” Harbaugh said. “I’m inspired by them…[it’s] inspirational. The young players on our team are incredible examples.”

Harbaugh emphasized the importance of participating in the March for Life and encouraged others to take a stand for the “unborn to be born…there’s no right without the right to be born. No other rights matter if you don’t have the right to be born.”
