On Sunday, pro-abortion group National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws took to social media to wish a happy Father’s Day “to all the pro-choice dads out there!”
The group suggested that men who support abortion “support equality and value bodily autonomy,” which they said “makes them great role models!”

Reactions on social media came quickly, and weren’t exactly what the group likely expected, as dozens of horrified commenters shared their reactions.
Many commenters thanked their pro-life fathers for not choosing to abort them, while others pointed out the irony of NARAL’s initial post.

@NARAL If I had done what my abusive “pro-choice” former partner had wanted, my amazing pro-life husband wouldn’t have 2 wonderful children to be celebrating Father’s Day with today, because my oldest would be dead & I definitely wouldn’t have gone on to have my son.

To my husband, father of my boys, and to my dear departed father – both the very best role models you could possibly have for fatherhood.
And both pro-life to their core.
The best kind of fatherhood is the one that accepts it with a full heart from the first moment.

I am pretty sure you nitwits don’t know what words mean.

Might be more appropriate to wish folks a happy Anti-Father’s Day. #MenForChoice are willing for children to be killed to avoid becoming a father. Nothing fatherly about that.
And killing innocent people makes a guy lots of things but a good role model is not one.
