Super Bowl champ’s wardrobe makes pro-life statement during Chiefs’ White House visit

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker made a strong testament to his faith and declared he is adamantly pro-life while standing behind President Biden on Monday when his team visited the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl LVII victory.

On his lapel, Butker wore a gold pin representing the feet of a 10-week-old baby. He also wore a tie designed by Live Action, a pro-life organization, that had “Vulnerari Praesidio” in cursive writing on it which is Latin for “Protect the most vulnerable,” according to The Daily Signal.

Without saying a word, Butker’s wardrobe accessories defiantly spoke volumes.

He used his visit to the White House to bring to light “the forgotten of our society.” The message is especially pertinent since Biden is a baptized and self-described “devout Catholic” who has wholeheartedly and aggressively supported and embraced abortion.

“I want to give the most vulnerable, the unborn, a voice at a place where every effort has been made to allow and normalize the tragic termination of their lives,” Butker said in a statement given to The Daily Signal. “As a father who has experienced three miscarriages, my wife and I understand the hardships that come with losing a child. Every life is precious and should be valued whether outside or inside the womb.”

“President Biden is a professing Catholic who, as the most powerful man in the world, is responsible for leading the most pro-abortion administration in our history that has overseen a horrific death toll of 2,548 children every day lost to abortion,” Live Action founder and president Lila Rose noted in a statement, according to The Daily Signal.

Butker is a devout Catholic and is not shy about professing his faith.

“I envision my life with my wife and having lots of children and being saints,” he declared. “That’s what I envision. I don’t really envision myself being in the Hall of Fame, winning more Super Bowls, getting x, y, and z records, getting that contract. It’s just not something I really think about… all of my fantasies, you could say, are all for my family and for my children.”

“I’m not just making kicks so that I can make money and I can puff myself up as this great person that people want to be like one day,” he commented in an interview with EWTN News In Depth’s Colm Flynn in February. “I’m making kicks because God wants me to have a platform, at least for right now, to share this message of faith, of growing in virtue, of growing closer to the sacraments, and of being a saint.”

Butker was a star during the Chiefs’ winning season. He kicked the game-winning field goal in the AFC Championship Game against the Cincinnati Bengals. And he gives all the glory to the Lord for it.

Butker also came through when the Chiefs got perfect field position late in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl LVII against the Philadelphia Eagles, where he perfectly placed a field goal to win the game, 38-35.

In addition to his game-clinching kick, he captured media attention for his scapular, which slipped out of his jersey while more than 100 million fans across the globe watched him line up for a 27-yard field goal attempt with 11 seconds left on the clock in a tie game.

“I think that was our Blessed Mother asking for the spotlight to be shown on her and reminding me that all the glory goes to God and to her,” Butker told Catholic News Agency in March in an interview.

He has been in the NFL since 2017 starting with the Carolina Panthers who tapped him in the seventh round of the NFL Draft that year out of Georgia Tech. Later, he went to the Chiefs and has been their placekicker ever since.
