NARAL Pro-Choice America Slams Super Bowl Commercial for Using ‘Anti-Choice Tactic’

Image source: YouTube

By Dave Urbanski

NARAL Pro-Choice America isn’t too fond of one Super Bowl 50 commercial.

And from Doritos, no less.

The humorous clip showed a pregnant woman getting an ultrasound of her “beautiful baby” — while Dad munched on Doritos chips.

“Really? You’re eating Doritos?” the now-annoyed mother said to him.Soon the unborn child on the ultrasound screen was sensing when the chuckling father waved a Doritos chip near Mom’s belly — and the baby instinctively reached for it in the womb.

More peeved than ever, she grabbed a chip and tossed it in the direction of her feet.

Bad idea.The child had only one place to go, presumably setting a birth in motion (as everyone in the room started to scream).

But NARAL Pro-Choice America cried foul, saying the commercial used an “antichoice tactic by humanizing fetuses.” Here’s the group’s entire protesting tweet:

#NotBuyingIt – that @Doritos ad using #antichoice tactic of humanizing fetuses & sexist tropes of dads as clueless & moms as uptight. #SB50 — NARAL (@NARAL) February 8, 2016

  1. Awesome!!! Hopefully, more commercials will take up the pro-life message that is always being silenced in our perilous times we are living!

  2. This commercial reminds me of Molly Kelly and Her sister. During their pregnancies years ago they both were addicted to potato chips. They both had daughters and their daughters have that potato chip gene. They also are addicted to potato chips.

    1. Ps...the pregnant near-birth mom is "upTIght"...which is normal when you approach your child's birth. Sadly NARAL probably relies on probably gender studies stereotypes...
