WASHINGTON, DC – A horrible new ad created for the abortion giant Planned Parenthood uses an adorable baby girl with big eyes and precious smile to advocate for abortion on demand.
The 40-second video, “The Chosen,” was created by the Agenda Project, a pro-abortion advocacy group, to promote the abortion giant Planned Parenthood.
In the video, the baby girl smiles and coos among soft, white blankets while a lullaby plays in the background. “She deserves to be loved,” the ad says, between clips of the smiling infant. “She deserves to be wanted. She deserves to be a choice.”
The ad basically presents the baby girl as an accessory, a beautiful thing to be had rather than a life to be loved and sacrificed for.
The message is simple. That adorable baby girl’s life is not about her or her well-being. It’s about her parent’s feelings. And if her parents feel that they do not want her at that moment in their lives, they can have her aborted in a violent, gruesome way, such as dismemberment abortion – the most common second-trimester abortion procedure.
It shows us not a “clump of cells” but a baby. It calls the baby “she,” not “it” or “that thing.” It seems almost to go out of its way to highlight the beauty and lovability of the child. It presents human life — wondrous, miraculous life — and says, “Yes, it is good to kill this person.”
This is what every pro-abortion ad says, and what ever pro-abortion person believes, even if they will not be so forthright about it. We should give the Agenda Project credit for being open and honest about what they believe and support. Then we should condemn them for believing and supporting something so deranged and cruel. And we should shudder in horror when we realize that many millions of Americans agree with them.
Before birth, her life does not matter, according to abortion activists. Planned Parenthood has even lobbied against late-term abortion bans and legislation to protect babies born alive after botched abortions. Pro-abortion groups do not seem to care what the reason for an abortion is either. If the baby simply is unwanted, if the parents are irresponsible about using birth control, if they are poor or struggling with a relationship, or simply believe a baby could get in the way of their dreams, abortion activists say it’s ok to abort that baby.
But a baby in the womb, just like a baby outside the womb, is a valuable human being, not a blob of tissue or an accessory. Every baby, wanted or unwanted, loved or unloved, deserves the chance to live.
