Abortion industry lobbying giant NARAL tweeted its good wishes to “pro-choice” dads for doing their part to raise “future generations of feminists,” but got slammed for what many viewed as a distorted view of the day to honor men who give life.
“Hey dads, Happy #FathersDay!” tweeted NARAL. “Caring about women’s #reprofreedom & bodily autonomy makes you better at raising future generations of feminists. So if you’re a pro-choice dad & one of the many #MenForChoice, we’re celebrating you today!”

Conservative author and CRTV host Michelle Malkin responded that NARAL’s tweet is “sick.”
“Thinking today of all the would-be dads mourning their unborn children sacrificed at the altar of ‘choice,’” Malkin posted.
This is sick. Thinking today of all the would-be dads mourning their unborn children sacrificed at the altar of "choice." https://t.co/m91VNk802W

Pro-life advocate and author of Target Africa, Obianuju Ekeocha also reacted to NARAL’s tweet with her comment that #MenForChoice “has led to millions of lost fatherhood. Real men should never support the killing of their children.”
On this #FathersDay,National Abortion Rights Action League-NARAL is asking men why they are proud to support abortion/the killing of their unborn babies. Hey #MenForChoice,abortion has led to millions of lost fatherhood. Real men should never support the killing of their children https://t.co/EJl4yh9LHA

Others commented on the irony of NARAL’s message in celebrating men who support aborting their unborn babies, instead of welcoming life and taking on the responsibility of fatherhood. Still others observed how NARAL and #MenForChoice failed to respect the separate life of the child they helped create, and how unborn babies have no choice at all, according to the abortion industry.
Did they respect the autonomy of the child their wife carried if they were pro-choice?

The innocent babies had no choice. It’s not choice, it’sirresponsible behavior and not taking responsibility for that behavior. So an innocent child’s life is ended because of irresponsible behaviors and actions. You want choice, with choice comes responsibility for actions.

Millions of “dads of dead babies” out there, no celebrating them or their choice to kill (or let be killed) their own children because YOU told them baby = blob!Technology doesn’t lie & science proves,LIFE AT CONCEPTION. #DefundPP NOW! Fund community centers for MUCH better care

The comment was also made that feminism is a “cult,” that demands group-think of its members – not independence.
If I was raising my daughter to be a feminist, I'd not be a father worthy of respect.
I am rearing my daughter to learn _how_ to think, not _what_ to think.
Feminism is a cult, and the delusion of equality is your idol.

Kinda weird to celebrate #FathersDay by giving a shoutout to men who support the inability to become a father, by choice 🏾♂️

Some took to Twitter to respond that NARAL’s tweet demonstrated its self-centeredness:
Way to make something that’s not about you somehow about you. 👍🏼
