New Orleans Saints tight end Benjamin Watson took to Twitter on Tuesday night to voice his displeasure with the New York State Senate passing the Reproductive Health Act.

The act declares abortion a “fundamental right” in New York.

Watson is a devout Christian, and has been outspoken about being pro-life. In fact, the 15-year NFL vet spoke at the 2017 March for Life rally.

Watson missed the NFC Championship game against the Rams with appendicitis.

The 38-year-old won a Super Bowl in 2005 with the Patriots. His best year came in 2015 with the Saints, recording 74 receptions for 825 yards.
