This week, a pro-abortion ad received a wave of backlash for using a baby to push people to support the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood.
The ad, apparently sponsored by the Agenda Project (AP) Action Fund, showed a cute baby with a nursery tune playing in the background.
“She deserves to be loved,” the ad read.
It added that “she deserves to be wanted” and “deserves to be a choice.” The ad then cut to a screen that read “#StandWithPP,” the hashtag for supporting Planned Parenthood.

On Twitter, many people recoiled at the messaging:
Oh my God. This can’t be real!

I very seriously don’t understand how this ad would make anyone be like “oh right, ok, abortion is chill.” https://t.co/igZlqnY93u

Wow! I am still pro-choice BUT whoever thought this was a good idea, should be fired. Very tasteless ad. And not sure why PP needs ads for abortion. So wrong on so many levels. https://t.co/z7kD4eSqVU

Independent Women’s Voice Senior Fellow Lisa Boothe came back with her own line about what the baby deserved.
This baby deserves to live.
