NFL's Tony Dungy to Attend March for Life, Ridiculed as Extremist

Super Bowl-winning NFL coach Tony Dungy announced he will be attending the March for Life pro-life event in Washington, D.C., on Friday, leading to intense criticism from abortion activists.

A wide array of media attacks quickly surfaced following Dungy's announced plans to participate in the 50th annual celebration of the event.

"He said publicly and proudly that he would not want gay football player Michael Sam on his team. He said over a decade ago that he disagreed with the 'lifestyle' of Jason Collins, the first out active male gay player in the main four North American sports," The Nation sports editor Dave Zirin wrote.

"This is a Dungy staple, calling being LGBT a 'lifestyle,' even after people have said to him repeatedly how hurtful and outdated such a description is. He simply doesn't care," he added.

"Tomorrow Lauren and I will be in Washington DC attending the 2023 March For Life," Dungy said on Twitter.

"It will be my first time at the March and I'm looking forward to joining my friend @BenjaminSWatson and thousands of others who will be there to support those unborn babies who don't have a voice," he added.

The event is expected to hold extra meaning for pro-life adherents this year as it is the first time the event has been held since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June, returning decisions on abortion laws to individual states.

The decision led to numerous actions nationwide that have limited abortion in many states while sparking controversy among abortion advocates.

Dungy's move is a bold one that stands for the lives of the unborn, showing his care for those in need.
