Evidently those who are aborted aren't 'oppressed'

abortion activists protestingColin Kaepernick remains in the news cycle, and not just for his endorsement deal with Nike. The former NFL quarterback, who was adopted, donated $25,000 to a pro-abortion group.

The Center for Reproductive Rights is a legal advocacy group that's dedicated to advancing abortion. Even though Kaepernick's donation was made in January 2017, Alison Howard Centofante of Live Action finds it ironic – and unfortunate – given Kaepernick's own story.

"His mom chose life for him," she says. "At 19, she found herself pregnant, chose life for him, and actually placed him up for adoption – and Kaepernick is now using his platform and his money to donate to a pro-abortion group that works against exactly everything that he has called the 'biggest blessing of his life.'"

Kaepernick made that statement in an interview with Dan Marino on CBS prior to Super Bowl XLVII in February 2013 when Kaep's San Francisco 49ers battled the Baltimore Ravens.

On Instagram, Kaepernick explained that the donation was a portion of his "Million Dollar Pledge" he said is meant to "keep empowering our oppressed communities."

"It is unfortunate," Live Action says in response, "that Kaepernick, whose mother gave him the gift of life, is working to help rob other children of that very same gift."

According to Centofante, abortion is the number-one killer of African Americans in the U.S. That's another unfortunate fact, she says, given that Kaepernick is the one who started the kneeling movement in the National Football League. While critics of his actions say it is disrespectful to the flag and the U.S. military, Kaepernick maintains it is about the treatment of blacks and other minorities.
