The abortion industry had just come out of a pretty tough year in 2015, having to defend the illegal buying and selling of aborted baby parts and all. But they looked to 2016 as their redemption, specifically the great hope had by all of them that the next President of the United States was going to be a pantsuit-loving, abortion-funding woman who was already BFFs with Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards. We all know how that turned out.
Even so, abortion advocates started freaking out in the beginning of the year over Doritos commercials and the insanity just never ended. Here is a list of the top 9 times abortion advocates lost their minds in 2016.
9) The time when NARAL lost their minds over the Doritos Super Bowl ad
It’s chips people! Doritos, in all their marketing brilliance, showed a hilarious ad during the biggest sports game of the year where a pregnant woman was having an ultrasound and the dad-to-be was munching on some tasty Doritos. The baby in the ultrasound decided it really wanted those chips and mom goes into labor. NARAL, one of the biggest pro-abortion groups in the country, absolutely freaked out and it was a joy to behold:

8) The time when Cecile Richards flipped out over the New York Times putting pro-lifers on the front page
During the oral arguments of the abortion case Whole Women’s Health v. Hellerstadt in March, dozens and dozens of pro-life students braved the cold to rally in support of common sense medical standards for abortion facilities. Planned Parenthood and their buddies bussed in supporters and likely spent a good chunk of money making their presence known outside the Supreme Court that day. But what photo did the New York Times (!) choose to use on their front page the next day:
Cecile Richards flipped out.

7) The time when abortion supporters called the Indiana governor to talk about their periods
If there is one thing abortion supporters know how to do well, it’s to use images of/real bodily fluids and sexual organs to their advantage when they flip out over laws they don’t agree with. In April, then-Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed a bill that banned abortions because of gender, race and fetal abnormalities. Abortion supporters lost their minds and started a campaign called Periods for Pence, where they called the governor’s office to talk about their menstrual cycles. Why? We don’t know. It’s what they do when they get mad apparently.
6) That time when Planned Parenthood lost their minds over Mike Pence’s nomination as VP
Speaking of Vice President-elect Mike Pence, the abortion industry really doesn’t like him. At all. When he was a Member of Congress, he was the first person to introduce a bill to defund Planned Parenthood. This was way before it was cool to try to defund the abortion giant.
When Pence was selected as Trump’s VP, Cecile Richards lost her mind, putting out a short, bitter statement: “The reason anyone in America could pick Mike Pence out of a one man lineup is because of his long history of targeted political attacks against the care provided at Planned Parenthood health centers in Indiana and across the country. Other than that, he doesn’t have a single distinguishing characteristic.”
Brutal, Cecile. Have a cosmo or something.
5) The time Hillary Clinton slipped up and called a fetus an “unborn person”
The audible gasp of Planned Parenthood and their allies in the abortion industry when Hillary Clinton called a developing baby in the womb an “unborn person” on Meet the Press could be heard throughout the social media realm. Diana Arellano, community engagement manager for Planned Parenthood of Illinois, was obviously in a state of shock when she tweeted out this gem:

4) The time abortion advocates freaked out over Rock for Life at the Vans Warped Tour
Rock for Life is a big initiative of Students for Life of America that travels all over the country every summer to mostly Christian music festivals and talks to young adults and teens about the pro-life message. This past summer, Rock for Life was able to get a booth at the secular Vans Warped Tour, where they hit up over 50 stops, much to the dismay of pro-abortion concert-goers.
do you think I’d get in trouble if I set the pro life tent at warped on fire by accident
— diesel weasel (@hernameisbrandi) July 1, 2016
Kinda wanna wreck that pro-life tent on my way out of Warped because fuck them
— bargain bin fuckboy (@angryqueer_) June 30, 2016
Ouch! These people ended up getting the attention of the head of the Vans Warped Tour, who came out in SUPPORT of Rock for Life and said that if the pro-abortion side wanted a tent space, he’d give them one. Not sure if they took him up on the offer.
3) The time pro-abortion students were offended by hearts
In April, the Students for Life group at the University of Iowa chalked 3,200 hearts with the message that “abortion stops 3200 hearts each day in the US” and other pro-life messages like “women deserve better than abortion” and “Students for Life supports pregnant and parenting students” AND “Smile, your mom chose life!” Some people didn’t like that. There was an organized effort by individual pro-choice students to send in complaints to the school about the pro-life messages. The pro-abortion student wrote, in part, on Facebook that: “THIS is violent. THIS is stigmatizing. THIS creates an unsafe environment for students on campus and we should not tolerate it.”
Really? They thought little hearts that represented those of tiny babies whose lives were taken because of abortion created an ‘unsafe environment for students on campus.’
2) The time Planned Parenthood freaked out about the Tom Price HHS nomination
Representative Tom Price was nominated to become the Secretary of the Health & Human Services (HHS) Department by President-elect Donald Trump. Rep. Price is a doctor. He’s also 100% pro-life. Cue the Planned Parenthood freakout:
Cecile Richards released a statement citing her normal talking points about how the other side hates women, wants to take away their healthcare, etc. Calm down, Cecile. Just because the majority of Americans don’t want to fund abortions like you want everyone to do doesn’t mean we don’t love women.
1) The time Planned Parenthood couldn’t believe Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton
This was a given. Planned Parenthood threw over $30 million to get a certain someone elected and it didn’t work. Now they are whining about women not being able to afford basic healthcare (if that $30M went to women’s healthcare….) and how the world is going to end and we are all going to die, ignoring the fact that Planned Parenthood alone takes the lives of 887 innocent babies A DAY:
Let’s get these words out of the way: Devastated. Angry. Shocked. Disgusted.
