Former NFL player Matt Birk has been announced as one of the keynote speakers for this year’s March for Life that is happening on January 19th in Washington D.C.. Birk is known for his strong pro-life views, which is a reason that he would be a big draw to the event in terms of getting a larger audience to attend. The former Ravens center, and his wife, Adrianna, both have a passion for speaking out against abortion and were even made semi-famous for refusing to meet President Obama over his views towards abortion. At this year’s event, Birk is expected to share more information about his views and tell some stories about his long-time, rewarding career in the NFL.
Birk was born in Minnesota and he was noticed as a stand out athlete right from his high school years, and eventually went to college in Harvard. He was brought back home in the 1998 NFL Draft when he was selected by the Minnesota Vikings to be one of their Center players on the team. The 6-time pro bowl player is also a 6-time Minnesota Vikings Man of the Year Award winner and has established himself quite well in the sport and his home state. From 2009-2012 he played for the Baltimore Ravens which led him to also be a Super Bowl Champion before retiring. Since 2014 he has been named the NFL football director of development, which he continues to do today.
Birk is expected to give an astounding speech later this month at the March for Life 2018 event in Washington D.C. It should be a informative and motivational experience for those who share a similar passion for the topic of pro-life.
