NARAL spent Super Bowl 50 complaining about babies

There are countless people who get excited about seeing which team will be this year’s world champion at every Super Bowl, but the commercials are also a big draw for viewers. As there are millions of people tuning in for the Super Bowl, ad agencies spend big bucks to present the best commercials of the year. One commercial that got a lot of attention was from Doritos, which featured a preborn baby who apparently already loves the chips:


Seems like a harmless, funny little ad, right? Wrong — this ad made NARAL furious.

So Doritos got the ire of a pro-abortion advocacy organization because they dared to present a preborn baby as… human? If preborn babies aren’t human, then maybe NARAL can clue us in to what they are. Aliens? Kangaroos? Maybe it’s like that one meme:

Hey, call it whatever you want, but just don’t call it human. Right, NARAL? Because heaven forbid people look at preborn babies as human. Next thing you know, people will be rethinking abortion and wondering if it’s not so humane to be ripping apart little babies limb from limb. And NARAL just can’t have that. So a Doritos ad featuring a doctor calling a preborn baby a baby, while the baby moves and kicks and exhibits personality would naturally infuriate humorless, extreme abortion supporters. But that wasn’t the only ad that left NARAL angry.

The NFL aired an ad celebrating “Super Bowl Babies” – babies born nine months after their parents’ team won the Super Bowl. In the ad, generations of these babies sang along to the tune of “Kiss From a Rose” with Seal.


And, surprise! NARAL didn’t like this one either. NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio showed how apparently, any mention of babies at all gets their hackles raised.

Oh, really? So what are the NARAL-approved reasons to start a family? NARAL Pro-Choice America, the parent organization that hated the Doritos ad, got in on the action too, retweeting the Ohio affiliate’s insistence that sports fans use protection, because getting pregnant would be, like, THE WORST.

Both organizations tried to walk back their tweets, later insisting that they just loved babies, but the damage had already been done. Twitter users were shocked and angry at what the pro-abortion extremists had said.

You’d think that it would be difficult for someone to politicize something as inane as the commercials during the Super Bowl, but this is the American pro-abortion lobby. Their extremism knows no limits. And they will take any opportunity to shill for the violence of abortion and attempt to dehumanize the preborn babies from whose deaths they profit.
