Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow appears to have entered the debate over the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
On Monday, Burrow shared a pro-choice message on his Instagram stories, while not making any comments on the decision of the Supreme Court himself.
“I’m not pro-murdering babies,” the Instagram message states.
“I’m pro-Becky who found out at her 20 week anatomy scan that the infant she had been so excited about bringing into this world had developed without life sustaining organs. “
“I’m pro-Susan who was sexually assaulted on her way home from work, only to come to the horrific realization that her assailant planted his seed in her when she got a positive pregnancy test result a month later.”
It’s not the first time that Burrow has thrown his hat in the ring when it comes to political issues.
In June, Burrow called for stricter gun control measures, weeks after the Uvalde, Texas, elementary school shooting left 19 students and two teachers dead.
“With everything that’s going on, if you’re not going to outlaw everything, you’ve gotta at least make it harder to get those crazy guns that everybody is using,” Burrow said. “I don’t think you should be able to just walk in there and buy one. You gotta be able to go through a rigorous process to be able to buy something like that, I think.”
“Hopefully, the people who get paid to make those decisions figure that out. My job is to play football, but hopefully the politicians can figure that out,” he continued.
The decision by the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade declares the constitutional right to abortion no longer exists and puts the decision on abortion back with the states.

Joe is a class act. He is thoughtful and has common sense. Wish more athletes and politicians behaved like him.
He does know you can still get an abortion the ruling just sent it back to the states where it should have been all along and he should revisit the 2nd amendment “shall not be infringed” there are already a ton of laws on the books and murder last time I checked was a serious felony didn’t stop any of these pathetic nut jobs who pop up and kill a bunch of innocents.
Well said Salty Saltine.
Class act, he used examples of rare instances as if they were the norm. I’d say most people are in support of the things he mentioned. It’s the 97% of abortions that are for convenience rather than a medical reason. That’s the difference. Joe doesn’t strike me as a dumb person so he knows this, he’s just advocating pro choice by trying to make people feel guilty but it’s pretty transparent.
I don’t need to hear from Burrow about any of this. Shut up son. Keep your views to yourself. I like him but if he keeps up his political comments I’ll tune him out.
Shut up! Shut up now Joe. Before you wade any deeper I suggest you follow Jordan’s path. Just smile and move on. Or maybe Sgt. Shultz. “I know nothing, I see nothing”.
The Safe, Legal and Rare scam, as a federal statue, passed decades ago. Over 97% of abortions are contraceptive, aka: an inconvenience.
Everyone who has their pro choice opinion is here to have it because their mother was pro life.
Of course he cherry picks extremely rare situations, and ignores the fact that the VAST majority of abortions are from lazy, reckless wh*res who abuse the system.
A “good kid” who has no clue the shark-filled waters he is wading into …
I don’t care what a football player thinks about the Constitution, or anything else besides football. I don’t even care what his favorite color is.
