NFL Player Jacob Hollister Chooses Pro Life Group As His Charity To Highlight

Jaguars Roster

Jacob Hollister, the tight end for the Jacksonville Jaguars, chose Live Action as his charity of choice for Week 13. Week 13 is when NFL players highlight their chosen charity on their cleats. Live Action is a pro-life non-profit dedicated to defending the rights of the unborn.

Hollister debuted his cleats that say “Love Them Both,” with an image of a pregnant mother with her unborn baby. 

Live Action stated:

“Hollister has bravely chosen to showcase his support for women and the lives of preborn children by displaying pro-life organization Live Action on his cleats…[Live Action] exists to shift public opinion against abortion and defend the rights of the most vulnerable.”

Hollister released a video sharing why he chose to support Live Action. He noted that while both the mother and child’s lives have equal value, the unborn baby does not have a choice. He also shared that he is happy to support Live Action and thankful the organization gives babies a voice. 

Hollister acknowledged he was initially afraid to publicly support Live Action. He didn’t want people to “ feel anything but love from me.”

He shared:

“To be honest, at first, I was really hesitant to do it. Not because I’m afraid of any confrontation or any arguments around the subject, it’s really just because I fear that anybody who feels differently than I do about it would feel anything but love from me. Because the way that I was raised and the way that I try to live my life to the best of my ability is to love people first in everything that I do and love people really well.”

Live Action founder, Lila Rose, thanked Hollister and praised him for being willing to stand for the rights of the unborn.

Rose said, “Even in the face of opposition, Jacob is using his voice to speak for the most vulnerable members of our society. More men need to follow Jacob’s lead. Strong, compassionate men stand up for women and preborn children.”

Live Action’s site garnered 1.4 billion lifetime views and reaches over 100 million people per month. The site has 5.6 million social media followers. 38% of those surveyed said Live Action content changed their mind on abortion.
