University of Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh, in an interview about the coronavirus pandemic, said he believed the crisis has made people more prayerful, and more cognizant of the “sanctity of life.”
“Even now, as we all go through what we’re going through with COVID-19, I see people more concerned about others,” Harbaugh told National Review’s Jay Nordlinger during a podcast.
“More prayerful. As I said, God has virtually stopped the world from spinning. I don’t think it’s coincidence — my personal feeling, living a faith-based life, this is a message, or this is something that should be a time where we grow on our faith for reverence and respect for God,” he said.
“You see people taking more of a view of sanctity of life,” Harbaugh added. “And I hope that can continue. I hope that continues and not just in this time of crisis or pandemic.”
In the interview, the Catholic Harbaugh turned to the issue of abortion.
“And lastly, abortion, we talk about sanctity of life, yet we live in a society that aborts babies. There can’t be anything more horrendous,” he told Nordlinger.
