NFL tight-end Benjamin Watson, who is known for his faith in Jesus Christ and being outspoken against abortion, spoke at Friday's March for Life in Washington D.C., and reviewed his speech during an interview with Fox News.

Speaking with Martha MacCallum on Fox's "The First 100 Days," Watson explained that his message at Friday's rally was that the "pre-born" are important lives and that it's important for pro-life people to reach across to pro-choice people with love and kindness.

"These lives are important, the pre-born are important and also the mothers who are having these children are important," Watson said, reviewing his speech. "But it's important for us to reach out in love and kindness to people that may not agree with us on this topic."

Watson explained that he also intended to challenge men to stand up for what's right.

"As men, we have a lot of time encouraged women to get abortions. We've been the reason why many of them have done this," Watson said. "And so my challenge was to men, including myself, to stand up for these women and also to stand for the pre-born."

"They truly are our most precious gifts," he added.

Watson went on to explain the reason why he attended Friday's march: because it's important to stand up for the voiceless and those who have no way to stand for themselves.

"The reason why I stand for life is because I believe God created all life," he said. "And we live in a world that is anti-God in a lot of ways."

Tens of thousands, possible hundreds of thousands, of people descended on Washington on Friday to march for life and against abortion. Vice President Mike Pence also spoke at the rally, which was the 44th annual march.

Watson plays for the Baltimore Ravens.
