Back in February, NARAL made a huge fuss over a funny Doritos commercial that showed an unborn baby moving around on an ultrasound screen.
This summer, the radical pro-abortion group decided to create its own version of a “comedy” video about abortion. But many viewers are saying there is nothing funny about it.
The video is titled “Comedians in Cars Getting Abortions,” and it is pro-abortion activists’ latest failed attempt to “normalize” abortion by making it seem funny. Their previous attempts include the movies “Obvious Child” and “Grandma.”
The NARAL video stars comedians Alice Wetterlund (“Silicon Valley”) and standup comedian Nato Green.
The Federalist’s Bre Payton described the video:
The video is intended to mimic Jerry Seinfeld’s popular video series in which he chats with other celebrities while riding in a car, but it’s terribly unfunny and riddled with misleading statements.
In a disturbing exchange at the beginning of the video, Wetterlund explains she’s getting an abortion because the world doesn’t need any more kids.
“That kid is slapping his dad in the face,” Green says.
“Yeah, we don’t need more of those in the world,” Wetterlund responds.
“Good point,” Green says. “Let’s go.”
Their next stop is at a pro-life pregnancy center where a woman at the front desk shares information about the woman’s unborn child. The NARAL video makes pregnancy centers out to be liars by having the pregnancy counselor spout absurdities like, “Did you know that at eight weeks, your baby’s brain has almost completely developed and he’s beginning to recognize iPhone passwords?” and “If you get an abortion, there’s an 18 percent chance that the chance of you getting into heaven is 0 percent.” Green and Wetterlund walk out the door.
When they get to an abortion clinic, an abortion counselor tells them, “You have to leave and come back in 32 hours exactly, exactly from that – 32 hours” because of state law.
At the end of their conversation, she tells Wetterlund, “If you want an abortion, the easiest way is probably just to go a place where it’s legal like Canada or Uruguay, or you could sail on international waters.”
But, as Payton points out, “In reality, there are no significant restrictions on abortion in the state of California, where the video seems to be based. Women in California aren’t required to wait a certain period of time before obtaining an abortion, nor are girls under 18 required to obtain parental consent.”
The Washington Times went even further in pointing out how much of a lie NARAL’s claim is: The U.S. is one of only a handful of countries that allows elective abortions for basically any reason after 20 weeks. Others include China, North Korea and Vietnam.
According to the Washington Times, the video was met with immediate backlash on social media from people who called it “unfunny” and tasteless. However, it appears that the pro-abortion group deleted the negative comments from its Facebook and Twitter pages.
One remaining negative comment that LifeNews found on NARAL’s Facebook page was from a woman who had an abortion. She described the video as “uncomfortable tongue-in-cheek not funny” and “disgusting” because it treated abortion so flippantly.
But that’s exactly how NARAL wants women to view abortion – as a normal, safe, common medical procedure and nothing more. The radical group opposes any and all abortion regulations, including common sense laws that require parental consent for minors and that inform women of possible risks and alternatives to abortion. In California, NARAL even managed to lobby legislators into forcing pro-life pregnancy centers to advertise and promote abortions.
NARAL calls itself a pro-choice organization, but its agenda is entirely pro-abortion.
