#NotBuyingIt: Swift backlash against NARAL’s anti-life Super Bowl tweets

As Live Action News has reported, pro-abortion group NARAL Pro-Choice America, and a state affiliate, NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio, took to Twitter Sunday night during Super Bowl 50 to further their own agenda, using the hashtag #NotBuyingIt. Unfortunately for them, a lot of people just didn’t buy what they were selling, and NARAL revealed just how anti-child they are.

One of the biggest complaints was directed at a Doritos ad for the “#antichoice tactic of humanizing fetuses.” Seriously:

Another claimed that an ad featuring celebrities Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen could be translated to how Americans agree with their extreme abortion agenda:

There were also several ads which featured Super Bowl Babies. And despite NARAL’s “pro-choice” label, the group posted a tweet that didn’t go over well:

After other commenters didn’t find this particularly funny, they tried to backpedal, but apparently couldn’t resist making fun of the idea of conceiving a child after the Super Bowl:

NARAL later addressed the backlash, claiming that they categorized the Super Bowl Babies ad as part of #MediaWeLike, because they wanted to further their agenda of “paid family leave” and “healthcare”:

It is unclear how NARAL’s mocking comments about starting a family are somehow supporting paid family leave or healthcare. But NARAL is right about one thing – the tweets did not go unnoticed, especially by pro-lifers.

Secular Pro-Life highlighted several of the tweets, including how NARAL is just fine with dogs, but not so much with babies:

Others pointed to how the abortion movement really seems to be averse to babies:

Others noted that when it comes to those Super Bowl babies, abortion groups like NARAL and their friends at Planned Parenthood (which performs nearly one-third of the abortions in the country) are working hard to make sure such babies don’t exist.

The tweets are now trending in the politics section of Facebook.

On Twitter, the tweets garnered as many negative responses as favorites. The Washington Post noted other NARAL tweets, which one commenter said helped to perpetuate “the stereotype that women are overly sensitive whiners.” Politico noted that the only ad NARAL seemed to really like was a beer commercial. Daily Caller said that “perceived misogyny was a constant source of outrage” for NARAL during the Super Bowl commercials.

While pro-lifers already know that the name “pro-choice” is a lie, and that NARAL is really an extremist pro-abortion group, the angry tweet fest opened the eyes of some others:

To many, regardless of viewpoint on politics or abortion, the Super Bowl is a great American pastime for any and all to enjoy. Even for those who don’t watch it for the game itself, the ads can be quite entertaining.

Shame on NARAL for hijacking an all-American event to further their pro-abortion agenda.
