The Pro-Abortion Ad That Will Turn Anyone Pro-Life

Earlier this week, a pro-abortion ad was circulated around social media, put out by the Agenda Project (AP) Action Fund. It originally appeared in 2015, but has resurfaced.

While liberal organizations circulate advertisements all the time, this particular ad was unique because it affirmed the exact point of the abortion movement, which the left tries so hard to veil: they kill babies.

The ad features a beautiful and smiling baby girl, complete with the most perfect smile and tiny knit hat, giggling at the camera while a soothing lullaby plays in the background. Cut to a black screen that says, “[S]he deserves to be…” and then in a fill-in-the-blank style, words appear: loved, wanted, and finally, a choice. The last words that appear on the screen are “#StandwithPP.”

So, according to the logic of the AP Action Fund, if this beautiful baby was not planned, her mother has the right to abort her out of existence? While saying that this little one deserves to be loved and wanted, inversely, she deserves to be violently dismembered, which is the harsh reality of abortionno matter how hard the pro-choicers try to disguise it because she was an inconvenience? While following the train of incoherent logic, isn’t abortion about giving women more freedom and control? How much control does that little baby girl have over her body if her mother can so easily end her life.

Simply put, the ad is tasteless, grotesque, incoherent and illogical. The only thing it accomplished was confirming that abortion does indeed kill babies, and, this time, they put a sweet and innocent face as an image for people to imagine when they think of abortions.

Well done, AP. You just made our job as pro-lifers a little easier because it takes a special kind of person to be able to look at that innocent baby’s face, feel nothing, and continue supporting abortiona woman’s right to take away the life of her child.

Because let’s face it, that’s what abortion is. Abortion is not freedom for women. It doesn’t allow women to control their bodies. It furthers a culture of murder and a disdain for the sanctity of life.

We have created a culture that treats its littlest and most defenseless members as objects to be dismembered and thrown away.

The ad presents Planned Parenthood as an organization that makes sure all children are wanted and lovedbut, if they aren’t, they are deemed undeserving of life and they will be violently murdered.
