Mehcad Brooks ‘Happy Birthday Baby’ video to celebrate Roe v Wade insults pro-lifers
Some critics are calling Tuesday’s “Happy Birthday, Baby” Roe vs Wade anniversary video the “most outrageous concept for promoting abortion that I’ve ever seen.”
The commercial was released Tuesday by the Center for Reproductive Rights in celebration of the 40th year of Roe v. Wade.
The video features Mehcad Brooks of USA Network’s Necessary Roughness and HBO’s True Blood, who is sitting by the fire, holding a rose. In what first appears to be some sort of romantic message about the remembrance of one’s wedding anniversary later obviates to be a presentation in support of abortion.
“To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade we didn’t buy a ruby,” the Center for Reproductive Rights writes under the description of the video. “Instead, the Center for Reproductive Rights asked Mehcad Brooks … to prepare a special video message just for you.”
“Oh, hey baby,” Brooks begins, smelling the rose. “What, did you think I forgot? I didn’t forget. How could I ever forget our anniversary?”
“From the casually alluring Let’s-Get-It-On vibe to the watery repetition of the word “Baby” to the way it clearly targets black women, it’s just…awful.”
