Yes Babies are Human

By now most of you would have seen the Doritos television ad screened during yesterday’s Super Bowl. It was just one of many spiffy ads which appeared during the game, but it seems to have caused the most controversy. Why? For daring to show a baby look like, well, a baby. You can see the ad here:

doritosThe pro-abortionists hate the very thought of people viewing a baby as a baby – for them it is just a clump of cells or a blob of tissue – anything but a real live little person. So when this ad appeared with an ultrasound of a living, moving baby, it sent the pro-aborts into hysterics.

For example, NARAL, America’s oldest pro-abortion lobby group, started hyperventilating and issued a tweet attacking Doritos for “using #antichoice tactic of humanizing fetuses”. Yes you read that correctly. This pro-death group is incensed because the ad made baby humans look like, um, baby humans.

Earth calling NARAL: a baby human is always a baby human, so yes, he or she is someone who is humanised. All that these baby killers are admitting here is they are in favour of dehumanising these little babies. Well, we always knew that, but it is nice when they spill the beans.

Plenty of prolife feedback has already been offered on this. Let me offer a few bits. Sarah Rumpf writes:

The trouble for NARAL and other pro-choice advocates is that technological advances like ultrasounds have become some of the most powerful arguments on the pro-life side. Even at the earliest stages of a pregnancy, it is clearly evident that the image an ultrasound shows is a tiny little human, and countless parents have watched that screen in amazement, overjoyed to see their baby for the first time and hear its heart beating.
By showing a “fetus” as not a “clump of cells” but a tiny human being, Doritos exposed the weakness of the pro-abortion worldview: The commitment to denying the humanity of the unborn child is in conflict with basic common sense. Those who prefer to describe their side as “pro-choice” cannot tolerate any evidence that shows the human life that “choice” could be ending.
Melissa Conway, Texas Right to Life’s director of external relations, praised the ad for “clearly capturing the human emotions and reactions of the preborn child.” In this ad, continued Conway, “Doritos acknowledges the awareness, feelings, and humanity each tiny life possesses.”
Texas state senator Konni Burton, a strong pro-life advocate who won the district formerly held by Wendy Davis (infamous for her 2013 pink-sneakered filibuster against a bill banning late-term abortions) agreed. “This ad shows the reason we fight so hard for the pro-life cause,” Burton told National Review. “The unborn child is human, unmistakably so.”

John Jalsevac put it this way:

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.

And Robert George nailed it by saying:

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 manufacturer, 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.

Yep, the last thing the pro-death camp wants is for people to see who are being killed. And how they are being killed. As one commentator put it: “They don’t like to see their dirty trade secrets revealed any more than a fur seller wants to find a poster of a trapped, dying animal hanging on his showroom window. Both remind us that someone else suffered tremendous pain and agony so we can have our lifestyles of convenience or comfort.”

Or as Peter Hitchens put it, ?”Abortion is the only event that modern liberals think too violent and obscene to portray on TV. This is not because they are squeamish or prudish. It is because if people knew what abortion really looked like, it would destroy their pretence that it is a civilized answer to the problem of what to do about unwanted babies.”

We often speak about the importance of truth in advertising. Well we just got some, literally, with the Doritos ad. And the baby-killers can’t stand it. Too bad.

  1. Everyone reading this should vote with their feet and give the video a big thumbs up, comment positively and buy Doritos to show how much we love reality and the humanity of unborn babies.

  2. “Humanising the foetus” is a Leftist liberal twist on “Exposing the truth”.

  3. The second YouTube video you put up was actually quite accurate of the left.

    My wife and I laughed for ages over the doritos ad.
