The pro-life tie worn by Harrison Butker when he visited the White House with his teammates recently, has become quite popular.
The athlete, who kicked the game-winning field goal for the Kansas City Chiefs in this year’s Super Bowl, used the occasion to share a subtle pro-life message in view of the pro-abortion Biden administration.
Butker was seen wearing a tie that had “Vulnerari Praesidio” in cursive writing all over it, which is a Latin term that translates as “Protect the most vulnerable.” The tie was designed by Live Action, a pro-life organization. He also wore a gold pin of baby’s feet the size of a 10-week-old aborted baby.

“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. “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.”
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,” the devout Catholic had said in a February interview with EWTN. “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 played a key role in the Chiefs winning it all this past season, and it came before the Super Bowl when he was needed to kick the game-winning field goal in the AFC Championship Game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Then Butker was called on again after his team got perfect field position late in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl LVII against the Philadelphia Eagles, where he chipped in a field goal down the middle to win the game, 38-35.
Butker has been in the NFL since 2017 after the Carolina Panthers took him in the seventh round of the NFL Draft out of Georgia Tech. He later joined the Chiefs and has made field goals out of 186 attempts in more than 90 regular-season games.
LiveAction has fielded thosuands of calls and email inquiries by individuals seeking to purchase the tie.
