A Doritos ad that was shown during Sunday’s Super Bowl has been accused of being sexist and anti-choice.
In an opinion piece for The Christian Post, Michael Brown discusses the Doritos ad and wonders what all the objections are about.
In the ad, a woman is shown getting an ultrasound while a man stands off to the side eating Doritos.
‘Really, You’re eating Doritos?’ the annoyed soon-to-be mother says to the man.
The baby on the ultrasound screen is then shown reaching for the Doritos as the man waves a chip near the woman’s belly, apparently showing just how irresistible Doritos are.
The baby moves so much that the woman presumably begins to go into labor.
Brown asserts that “That’s how good Doritos are. End of subject.”
However, NARAL (the National Abortion Rights Action League) and other pro-choice groups have condemned the ad for being anti-choice and sexist.
“#NotBuyingIt --that @Doritos ad using #antichoice tactic of humanizing fetuses & sexist troped of dads as clueless & moms as uptight. #SB50,” NARAL tweeted.
Brown dismisses both claims, and instead argues that a fetus is a human life.
“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,” says Brown, also citing as evidence that parents choose names while babies are still in utero and that soon-to-be moms post pictures of their ultrasounds, talking about their baby’s tiny features.
Brown asserts that this pro-choice rhetoric “reminds us of how deeply the pro-abortionists need an encounter with the Lord and how deeply this battle is spiritual.”
“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,” Brown adds.
