Two tweets in the last week, one from Cosmopolitan and one from NARAL, reveal the depravity of these radical pro-abortionists.
Although the tweet has now been removed, Cosmopolitan sent out this message on February 4th: “Texas women are having more babies since Planned Parenthood was defunded,” followed by a sad face. This was linked to a picture featuring the graphic #StandwithPP.
Oh, the tragedy!
Texas women are having more babies.
More children are being spared the horrors of abortion – being sliced up, burned up, and sucked into pieces in the womb – and are seeing the light of day.
More mothers and fathers are holding precious little human beings in their arms, crying with joy at the new life they have produced.
What could be more terrible?
But it gets worse and, if possible, even more absurd.
NARAL, the National Abortion Rights Action League, took strong exception to a silly Doritos commercial during the Super Bowl. (Yes, the same Doritos that produced the rainbow-colored, gay-honoring Doritos last year.)
As summarized by Dave Urbanski on The Blaze:
“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.
The child had only one place to go, presumably setting a birth in motion (as everyone in the room started to scream).”
Now, before I share what NARAL tweeted, let’s think about this like rational human beings.
What could be so offensive about this comical ad?
Nothing graphic or distasteful appears on the screen; the commercial is clearly meant in fun; it shows a normal ultrasound; the big surprise is apparently a baby being born ahead of schedule.
That’s how good Doritos are.
End of subject.
But not for NARAL, which tweeted through the Super Bowl, calling out ads it identified as “sexist” or “transphobic.”
For NARAL, the Doritos’ commercial crossed a line: “#NotBuyingIt – that @Doritos ad using #antichoice tactic of humanizing fetuses & sexist tropes of dads as clueless & moms as uptight. #SB50
You might be saying to yourself, “Someone obviously made this up. No one in their right mind thinks like this, not even NARAL.”
I do agree that no one in their right mind thinks like this, but NARAL, sad to say, is not its right mind.
We’ll ignore the ridiculous attack on “sexist tropes of dads as clueless & moms as uptight,” as if it is “sexist” to have fun with the image of a dad who is not quite used to being in the doctor’s office with his wife during an ultrasound and with a mom who might be just the tiniest bit “uptight” during the process. Oh, the rank sexism of it all!
But what NARAL said about the “antichoice” (= pro-life) “tactic of humanizing fetuses” reminds us that, even more tragically, NARAL does not have a heart.
There’s a reason that the vast majority of women who see their ultrasound choose not to abort their babies.
There’s a reason that expectant moms send out pictures of that ultrasound with the exciting news, “It’s a boy!” (or, “It’s a girl!”), pointing out the little hands and feet and nose and ears.
There’s a reason the wife grabs her husband’s hand and puts it on her stomach as the baby jumps inside so he can experience a little of what she’s feeling as that bundle of new life moves around.
There’s a reason many parents pick a name for their child as soon as they hear whether they’re having a boy or girl, even though there are a few months to go before the little one makes its appearance.
There’s a reason some women will mourn for years over a miscarriage, even if took place in the early months of a pregnancy.
And there’s a reason that pro-abortionists fight so strenuously against laws requiring abortion clinics to show the mother an ultrasound before going ahead with the murderous act.
It’s because that fetus is a human being, carefully formed and made, full of life and potential, the unique creation of God and that mother and father.
And “humanizing fetuses” is no more an “antichoice tactic” than wanting to humanize Jews during the Holocaust in Germany or wanting to humanize Africans during the slave trade in America.
But there is a silver lining to the moral depravity evidenced in these two tweets.
It reminds us of how deeply the pro-abortionists need an encounter with the Lord and how deeply this battle is spiritual more than anything.
The reality is that the heartlessness and mindlessness and anger and depravity of their position comes not only from many rebellious hearts. It also comes from many broken hearts, from the hearts of women masking their deep wounds and pain.
And so, as we expose their lies and work to save the lives of the unborn, let’s also pray for a wave of repentance and salvation to sweep through the people of NARAL and Cosmopolitan and Planned Parenthood and their supporters, both female and male.
Jesus died for their redemption too.
The saving of their lives could result in the saving of many more lives in the womb.
