Somewhere between 65-90% of abortion-minded women change their minds about aborting their babies once they see the ultrasound image of the baby they carry.

Doritos ran a Super Bowl commercial that has the pro-choice crowd in a frothing rage.
The commercial features a pregnant woman on the verge of giving birth. She is receiving an ultrasound while her husband stands nonchalantly next to the bed munching on some Doritos.
The dad playfully offers a Dorito to the baby in the ultrasound, who reaches for it. The dad teases the baby by offering another Dorito and then snatching it back after the baby reaches for it again.
The exasperated mom grabs the Dorito out of her husband’s hand, and throws it toward the foot of the bed. Then next thing we see is the baby jetting out of ultrasound range to go after that chip. Suddenly a baby is born. It’s pretty cute.
The pro-abortion group NARAL (which used to call itself the National Abortion Rights Action League) was outraged and tweeted out an angry response. Why was the pro-death crowd so agitated? Doritos was “using #anti-choice tactic of humanizing fetuses.”
That reveals everything you need to know about the pro-abortion movement. They know that the moment the baby in the womb is humanized, the argument is over. Once the personhood of a preborn baby is established, there no longer remains an argument for abortion.
Even the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court acknowledged that if the personhood of a baby in the womb was an established fact, the baby would have a right to life under the 14th Amendment and the Court could not have legalized abortion.
This is why ultrasound technology is so lethal to the pro-death argument, for ultrasound images reveal that a woman is not carrying a blob of protoplasm or a clump of cells but a living human being. Somewhere between 65-90% of abortion-minded women change their minds about aborting their babies once they see the ultrasound image of the baby they carry.
Ultrasound technology is just catching up to where the Bible has been all along. Elizabeth was six months along in her pregnancy when Mary, the mother of Jesus, came by to visit. As soon as Mary crossed the threshold, something profound happened. Said Elizabeth, “When the sound of your greeting came to my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy” (Luke 1:44).
It was a baby, not a thing, and it was capable of not just a physical response to external stimuli but of an emotional response to it.
The impotent rage of the pro-death crowd is revealing. If an ad for a corn chip can blow your worldview completely out of the water, you probably never had much of an argument to begin with.
