Pro-aborts lost their minds yesterday after Doritos aired a commercial that…*gasp*…showed an ultrasound of an unborn baby.
The humorous commercial showed a dad eating a bag of Doritos while his wife gets an ultrasound, and the baby tries to grab at the Doritos in his hands.
Watch it for yourself:
Funny, right? And kind of cute, in a silly way. But not for NARAL Pro-Choice America.
They tweeted their disgust:

Get that? “Humanizing” a fetus.
Since last night there hasn't been any shortage of responses to NARAL's bizarre anti-scientific, anti-baby, and anti-human extremism.
But one of the best responses I've read comes from Dr. Robert George, a pro-life professor at Princeton University, who posted this on Facebook:
I gather that the really big news, as always, had to do with a commercial advertisement that was broadcast in the course of the game. Evidently, a potato chip manufacurer, or some such profit-driven purveyor of packaged foodstuffs, showed a video image of an unborn baby. This shocked and appalled the folks at NARAL, the big abortion lobby, who promptly accused the company responsible for the ad of “humanizing the fetus.” Since, however, the fetus in the video was, by all accounts, a human fetus, the offspring of human parents, and not a bovine, canine, or feline fetus, it's less than clear how it is that the potato chip company (or whatever it was) is to blame for the humanization. Surely NARAL's complaint would be more fairly lodged against God, or nature, or plain old biological reality.
Memo to NARAL: that's what an unborn baby actually looks like.
Every couple who has ever had an ultrasound has watched their baby being “humanized” right in front of their eyes, which is why having an ultrasound is such a beautiful and moving experience.
Nowadays, with crystal-clear “4D” ultrasounds, couples can watch their babies kick about, suck their thumbs, respond to noises in the room, move away from the doctor's or nurse's touch, etc.
And that's why pro-life activists are working furiously to pass laws ensuring that women are given the opportunity to see an ultrasound of their babies before they go through with an abortion. It's called “informed consent.” That means, telling a patient everything they need to know to make an informed decision before going through with an irrevocable medical procedure.
But pro-abortion groups like NARAL are fighting these commonsense laws tooth and nail. Why? Because they know what pro-lifers who work in crisis pregnancy centers have learned through long experience: when women see their baby in front of their eyes on an ultrasound, they are far, far less likely to go through with the abortion. And that means lost income for abortion clinics.
That's why story after story has come out of women saying that even when they asked to see the ultrasound of their baby before their abortion at an abortion clinic, the staff at the clinic refused. Because feminism.
So, a question for abortion supporters out there: If your whole ideology has to be propped up on a stubborn denial of one of the most clearly proven scientific facts – i.e. the humanity of the human unborn child – what does that say about the value of your ideology? And if the only way you can get women to buy your product – abortion – is by lying to them, what does that say about your view of women?
