Huggies commercial exclaims: “There’s a human being growing inside your stomach!”

It’s easy to be discouraged by the negative news swirling around the internet every day. It’s easy to think that our world is full of death and horrible things. In some ways, it is. But there’s also another side. There are reasons to be encouraged.

There are countless unsung heroes who choose life, in spite of death:

Quentin and Jodi Peterson, who chose life for their son when a doctor strongly advised they leave him to starve to death in the hospital. The Long family, who rejected a doctor’s advice to institutionalize their son who had cerebral palsy. Nicole and Steven Steng, who gave life to their son with spina bifida, despite a doctor telling Nicole that he would “absolutely perform” a late-term abortion. Emily Kiecher’s mom, who refused abortion after Emily was diagnosed with spina bifida. Emily was featured on the February, 2013, cover of Parents Magazine. The mothers of Steve Jobs and Colin Kaepernick who chose adoption instead of abortion. Pam Tebow, who chose a risk to her own life over aborting her son, Tim Tebow.

And despite the negativity so prevalent in common media coverage, there are often bright spots to be found:

ESPN’s show, E:60 featured a dad who regretted wanting to abort his daughter with Down Syndrome. His wife stood strong, and Paisley was born. Spending time with her is now one of the most precious things in his life. A kids’ clothing catalog, Target, Nordstrom, and People Magazine have all recently featured children with Down Syndrome. A 2010 Dove Super Bowl ad correctly showed when human life begins. A Texas waiter refused service to a man who was extremely rude about another customer with Down Syndrome. Nissan and Pampers have both aired commercials celebrating unborn life.

Now, we can add Huggies to the ever-expanding list. This well-known diaper company has aired an ad where a woman excitedly informs her husband (or partner) that he is going to be a dad. After giving her a huge hug, he exclaims, “There’s a human being growing inside your stomach!”

Not only does this ad correctly refer to an unborn child – from a very early stage (the woman just found out she’s pregnant) – as a “human being,” but it also communicates another important message. This baby is growing. And growing children deserve protection from those who are responsible for them, namely their parents.

Watch the ad for yourself, and celebrate with this couple that a new, unique human being is growing inside this new mother’s stomach!

Not a "clump of cells" or "blob of tissue" or "alien parasite" but "a human being" Who would have thought?

I just wish folks would stop saying the baby is growing in the “stomach.” But this is very cool - wonder whatever happened to those awesome GE commercials on the 4-d ultrasounds of the baby growing inside the mommy’s ...belly....tummy...womb...whatevah! Do you think someone jumped on GE for showing in living color the little tyke playing around in there?

Yep. The diaper industry is clearly at odds with the abortion industry. One could hardly pick a better example to illustrate the concept of "competing interests."

If they made more money from Abortion as they do with diapers they’d be singing a different tune.

Someone finally realized their market is dying.

It’s not only Huggies, it’s Gerber, it’s Crayola, it’s Disney and the list goes on and on.

How is this contradictory to the Jeans commercial?

It’s 1 of the best ever.

And they’re not homosexual guys lusting after the baby. Geesh. Just everyone notices the cool dude because of his style AND presence. That’s the essence of the skit, what happens in real life with people with presence.

That's great. But Huggies does have a vested interest in fertility rates. It's good business, at least until the homos attack Huggies for supporting "breeders."

OK, I think you just jumped the Shark with that Post.

The Ad was all about the Toddler looking cool. I think you are confusing the Metrosexual look with the Homosexual look, not that there's anything wrong with that. LOL.

Apparently your Gaydar is out of adjustment.

Abortion is the legal killing of nascent human life. Legal killing!!! That’s pretty #ed up.

If a lady is pregnant, there is a baby inside of her. If some thinks it is not a baby, then she cannot be pregnant.

Can’t blame them. Dead babies don’t use many diapers!

Yup. I can’t believe anyone would think they are sexual predators.

But, using the apparent pejorative “metrosexual” is also a disservice to the men. Looking chic and clean is the gentlemen should be. I wish “men” would stop looking like the dregs of society, unshaven, disheveled hair and dirty hanging clothes. That doesn’t mean “masculine” to me. Just scumbag lowlife.

Don't care. Truth is truth, regardless of the incentive one finds for not ignoring it.
