PRO-CHOICERS CRACKING UP
By John Stonestreet
The Super Bowl was clearly tough for Carolina fans. But some abortion supporters got upset, too. You might say they’ve got a chip on their shoulders.Abortion is supposed to be about “planning parenthood,” but recent outbursts from some pro-choicers makes it seem they find the very idea of human life appalling.
Take the kerfuffle over last Sunday’s Super Bowl commercials. The Doritos commercial featured a dad munching on the tasty chips while the couple sees their unborn baby on ultrasound. The baby wants Doritos too, so when the mom grabbed the chips and threw them across the room, the baby unexpectedly—well—gave chase. It was funny, if a little off-color.
But the National Abortion Rights Action League, or NARAL, felt differently. “#NotBuyingIt,” the group tweeted. “that @Doritos ad using #antichoice tactic of humanizing fetuses & sexist tropes of dads as clueless & moms as uptight.”
