New England Patriots running back Damien Harris assisted Planned Parenthood during Thursday night’s game against the Buffalo Bills.

Harris had the Planned Parenthood logo on his shoes as part of the NFL’s My Cause My Cleats campaign.

“Grateful for the opportunity to represent @PPAdvocacyMA and support women across America in their fight against body regulation,” he tweeted. “#HerBodyHerChoice.”

Following Wednesday’s tweet, Harris was ruled out of the game on Thursday. The Patriots lost the game 24-10.

Harris’ Planned Parenthood campaign comes months after Roe v. Wade fell. After the Supreme Court made its decision, more than a dozen states initiated so-called “trigger legislation” to ban most abortions.

Harris was responding to a leaked Supreme Court draft of the opinion back in May.

“This is wrong,” he tweeted.

Harris wasn’t the only one who shared his opinion on the matter. Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow also responded on Instagram in June.

The post, which was shared across multiple social media accounts, began with “I’m not pro-killing babies,” and recounted several hypothetical situations about why a woman would choose to have an abortion.

“I’m Pro-Becky, who discovered on her 20-week anatomy scan that the child she was so excited to bring into this world had developed without life-support organs,” the post reads in part.

“I’m supporting Susan, who was sexually assaulted on her way home from work, only to have the horrifying realization that her attacker planted his seed inside her when she got a positive pregnancy test result a month later.”

The post rattled off several other hypotheses.

“You can argue and say I’m pro-choice what you want, but the truth is, I’m pro-life. your life. Women’s lives,” the post ended.
