Commercial runs featuring ultrasound of baby, pro-aborts lose minds February 9, 2016Posted by Tantumblogo in Abortion, Basics, contraception, disaster, family, General Catholic, horror, It's all about the $$$, paganism, scandals, secularism, sexual depravity, sickness, Society, unbelievable BS.
The one good thing I have seen come out of this flap over the tacky Doritos commercial below is that a number of secular-leaning reporters/writers have awakened to the realization that these people are not “pro-choice,” they are pro-abortion. They desire as few babies being born as possible, and, quite possibly, zero births.
So Doritos ran an add that showed a baby, in utero, jonesing for some of their chips. Here’s the ad, which ends in a tacky and sort of gross way:
Dumb, right? A baby chasing after a Dorito via cheesy CGI? And of course dads are stupid, slovenly, and oblivious.
Well, even that was too much for the misanthropes at NARAL, who promptly tweeted out their disgust at this terrible “humanizing” of fetuses. Even more, NARAL in Ohio found the NFL ads noting a statistical jump in births 9 months after Super Bowls (and praising that as a good thing) as being something calling for more birth control, especially IUDs, which have the tendency to go haywire and render women permanently sterile. Feature or bug? You decide.
NARAL lambasted Frito-Lay for using “anti-choice” tactics. But what if someone’s choice is to have a bunch of babies? Isn’t that a choice, too? Not for you. Get an IUD, or, better yet, an abortion. Then they can sell the parts for a bunch of profit.
Additional commentary from the National Review:
The trouble for NARAL and other pro-choice advocates is that technological advances like ultrasounds have become some of the most powerful arguments on the pro-life side.
Even at the earliest stages of a pregnancy, it is clearly evident that the image an ultrasound shows is a tiny little human, and countless parents have watched that screen in amazement, overjoyed to see their baby for the first time and hear its heart beating.
By showing a “fetus” as not a “clump of cells” but a tiny human being, Doritos exposed the weakness of the pro-abortion worldview: The commitment to denying the humanity of the unborn child is in conflict with basic common sense. Those who prefer to describe their side as “pro-choice” cannot tolerate any evidence that shows the human life that “choice” could be ending. [It’s never been about choice. It’s always been about control. If you can convince a mother to kill her own child, what can you not convince her of?]
Melissa Conway, Texas Right to Life’s director of external relations, praised the ad for “clearly capturing the human emotions and reactions of the preborn child.” In this ad, continued Conway, “Doritos acknowledges the awareness, feelings, and humanity each tiny life possesses.”
Texas state senator Konni Burton, a strong pro-life advocate who won the district formerly held by Wendy Davis (infamous for her 2013 pink-sneakered filibuster against a bill banning late-term abortions) agreed. “This ad shows the reason we fight so hard for the pro-life cause,” Burton told National Review. “The unborn child is human, unmistakably so.”
Pro-aborts, of course, have to deny that obvious fact. If too many people start comprehending the humanity of the unborn child, the inevitable result is that abortion will be finally, mercifully banned. And pro-aborts cannot have that. So they have to pretend that a baby is not human, and resort to more and more ludicrous distinctions as to what constitutes life, in effect denying the free will they claim to cherish, and instead making the baby’s life something totally at the whim of the mother. Unethicists like Pete Singer have taken this line of thinking to its logical conclusion, noting that if a mother can kill a fully human child in utero on a whim, then why not a 2 year old, or a five year old?
And the sick thing is, a not inconsiderable number of people agree with them. Child hatred is a growing phenomenon in this culture of ours, which I’m sure any number of you have experienced.
