DETROIT ( - An ad aired during Sunday night's Super Bowl has sent abortion advocates into a frenzy.
The commercial shows a pregnant woman at the hospital getting an ultrasound, while her husband is watching and munching from a bag of Doritos. The unborn baby responds to the chips by trying to reach for them, with the parents watching his movements in surprise on the ultrasound.

NARAL Pro-Choice America was quick to condemn the ad, publishing a tweet Sunday evening slamming what it saw as a pro-life agenda.

The Huffington Post, a liberal journal, came out with the headline "Doritos' Super Bowl Ad Is Making Us Rethink Ever Eating Doritos Again." The article lamented that "this is a mental image we won't be able to easily shake the next time we eat Doritos," then noted various celebrities who also disliked the ad.

The public isn't buying their angst, however. Comments beneath HuffPo's article are almost universally critical of the article, with many individuals telling the site to stop "being offended by everything" and noting that "[n]o real feminist would be offended by [the ad]." One commenter named Ben asked, "Why laugh when you can go through life being offended by everything?" And a woman named Kerri said, "I'm pregnant and thought it was the funniest commercial so far — my husband and I were both laughing!"

The general consesus of commenters declared the ad "the best commercial" from this year's Super Bowl.
