Every year, on Superbowl Sunday, around one billion Americans tune in to enjoy the pageantry surrounding the game, the athleticism displayed within the game itself, and, of course the commercials, which cost their sponsors millions of dollars to produce and to place within the annual event.
After watching the Big Game, I’m here to tell you that some of those companies should have saved their money, instead.
However, some of the commercials were touching, funny, and memorable.
One of those commercials even started “the Most Tolerant People in the Room” whining.
Foxnews.com reports that
A pro-choice group kicked off a corn chip controversy Sunday night when it mocked a Doritos commercial as being “anti-choice” for using the “tactic of humanizing fetuses.”
Some viewers laughed, while others were a little put off by the “Ultrasound” ad, which showed a fictitious fetus kicking around in the womb as its oblivious and expectant father munched on Doritos. But few took the advertisement as seriously as NARAL Pro-Choice America, which tweeted “#NotBuyingIt – that @Doritos ad using #antichoice tactic of humanizing fetuses & sexist tropes of dads as clueless & moms as uptight. #SB50.”
The tweet – part of a barrage criticizing various aspects of Super Bowl commercials seen as sexist or anti-choice – received 348 retweets and 325 favorites.
Many in the pro-life community took issue with NARAL’s framing of the commercial.
“If NARAL is scandalized by the notion that a human fetus is human, then they are scandalized by science,” Ashley McGuire, a senior fellow with The Catholic Association, said in a statement to FoxNews.com.
“Even if it’s a funny commercial to sell corn chips, it’s a political tact to them.”

“We know children in the womb have distinct and human DNA. We also know that they exhibit all sorts of human behaviors in the womb such as yawning, thumb-sucking, and even dancing thanks to tremendous advances in ultrasound technology.
“But groups like NARAL and Planned Parenthood rely on a denial of these scientific realities better suited to the Dark Ages to maintain their rabid insistence that those unborn babies are undeserving of basic human rights.”
In the ad, the mom, a doctor and the father watch as the fetus moves to and fro in its mom’s tummy in an attempt to get closer to a chip wielded by the father.
When the exasperated mom flings the chip across the room, the baby follows – exiting the ultrasound frame and, apparently, the womb. The last bit is only intimated, as the camera pans to the horrified faces of the mom, dad and doctor as the Doritos logo flashes on the screen.
“I thought the ad was funny. It was a big hit at the Super Bowl party I was at, and I was surprised how NARAL reacted,” said Chris Gast, the director of communications for Right to Life Michigan.
“Having an ultrasound is a very common experience for parents around the country, and I don’t understand why NARAL finds a common everyday experience like having a baby to be a strong political statement.
The simple and unavoidable fact of the matter is that, Pro-Abortionists are opposed to the taking of sonograms of the woman’s womb, before she has a abortion. They’re afraid that the “seed-carrier” will realize that IS a HUMAN BEING inside her, and will decide not to kill that baby.
Have you ever tried to have a discussion with an ardent pro-abortion supporter, either on Facebook or face-to-face? You won’t hear these “Champions of Tolerance” call those innocent lives, babies, human beings, a life, a soul, a gift from God, or anything remotely resembling something that they should feel remorse about killing.
From the scientific perspective, Dr. Carlo Bellieni, in his book “Dawn of the I: Pain, Memory, Desire, Dream of the Fetus,” writes:
As soon as it is born, the child shows in a scientifically demonstrable way that it recognizes its mother’s voice and distinguishes it from that of a stranger. Where has he learned that voice other than in the maternal womb?
There are also direct proofs. For example, we register how the movements and cardiac frequency of the fetus vary if we transmit unexpected sounds through the uterine wall. And we see that at first the fetus is startled, then it gets used to it, just like we do when we hear something that does not interest us.
In fact, the scientific evidence is immense. We cannot understand how it can be thought that it becomes a person at a certain point, perhaps when coming out of the uterus.
From the physical point of view, at the birth very little really changes: Air enters the lungs, the arrival of blood from the placenta is interrupted, the type of circulation of blood in the heart changes, and not much more.
As I often say, only blind faith in magic arts or some strange divinity can lead one to think that there is a “human” quality leap at a given moment — certainly not science.
As NARAL’s reaction to the Superbowl Commercial showed, the Liberal mind is fascinating.
Sick and twisted…but, fascinating.
On the one hand, if you corner the majority of Pro-Abortion Liberals, including the President, they will say that children are to be cherished and protected. I agree.
At, the same time, they claim to stand by a woman’s right to kill her baby. I can hear the Liberals screeching right now.
That’s not a baby. It’s a fetus! It’s not the same thing! You chauvinist pig!
(Fetus is Latin for BABY)
If cherishing God’s gift of life makes me a “Chauvinist Pig”, you’re darned skippy I am! Yay, Pigs! Sooey!
The blatant hypocrisy shown by Obama, his loyal minions in Congress, and the MSM, the Liberal pundits on TV and Radio, and ignorant “seminar” callers and posters on Conservative websites, in defense of “their rights “not to be punished with a baby” and their silence regarding the American Auschwitz known as the Gosnell Case, is reminiscent of Germany in the 1930s…and positively chilling.
A while back, MSNBC Host, and Resident Communist, Melissa Harris-Perry proclaimed,
…we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents, or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to whole communities. Once it’s everybody’s responsibility, and not just the household’s, then we start making better investments.
Evidently, for Obama and the rest of the Liberals, that only applies when the child is no longer a “punishment”.
If Christian Americans do not speak out against this American Genocide…WHO WILL?
I have always said that, in what seems to be a majority of the cases, abortion is a selfish act. It ends the life of an innocent human being, before they have even had the chance to live it.
Life is not, and never will be, a bicycle ride in the park.
Life is a series of challenges, which every person has to meet head on, and make the choice between right and wrong for themselves.
We have been given Free Will by Our Creator because WE ARE LOVED.
In fact, He loves us so much, that he gave us that still small voice, which resides in each one of us, which is referred to, in secular terms, as the conscience, and, is known to Christians as the Holy Spirit.
It is this still, small voice that helps us make the important decisions which we face in this life, in order to overcome the challenges which we are faced with.
It’s also undoubtedly why the overwhelming majority of Americans are so upset about the ghoulish resurrection of the practices of, and imitation of, the Third Reich by Planned Parenthood, through their monstrous marketing of the body parts of aborted babies.
Regardless of what you see in the Main Stream Media, the majority of Americans still know the difference between right and wrong.
THAT AIN’T A PUPPY IN THERE.
Until He Comes,
