Count it the dumbest denunciation ever: NARAL, formerly the National Abortion Rights Action League, slamming a Super Bowl ad for “humanizing fetuses.”
If they weren’t human, folks, abortion wouldn’t be controversial.
The silly Doritos spot opens with a pregnant woman getting an ultrasound. Cut to dad cluelessly munching chips, annoying the mom — then see the fetus reaching toward the chips.
And when mom grabs the bag and tosses it far offscreen, the unborn baby plainly starts to rush for the exit — early delivery time!
You might have chuckled or groaned — but you didn’t scream in outrage.
Yet that’s what the abortion-rights group opted for,tweeting out “#notbuyingit — that @Doritos ad using #antichoice tactic of humanizing fetuses.”
Talk about tunnel vision: NARAL has its head so far up its own special-interest butt, it didn’t realize how even most pro-choicers would wince at the idiocy of that complaint.
