Portugal. The Man’s Pro-Abortion Music VideoBrenna Lewis | November 10, 2017
Earlier this year, a Pacific-coast band called Portugal. The Man released an “interactive” music video to the tune of their song called “Feel It Still.” The video, released in March, is jam-packed with anti-conservative imagery and radical socialist ideas. Many observers, from both sides of the political aisle, seem to be in agreement that the video provides a comprehensive kit for anyone looking to #resist as well as continue the degradation of many values that Christian Americans hold near and dear.
There are a total of 30 interactive tidbits included in their music video, ranging from environmentalism to gun control. This release is no doubt meant to be both shocking and divisive, despite the fact that a number of their “easter egg” links are suitable places to find common ground. Most of us are quite capable of having a civil discussion about things like global warming and the usefulness of the EPA. What is not, however, a place to find common ground? Their link to donate to Planned Parenthood that pops up as two people are tangled up in the back seat of a car.
The radical views on abortion that are espoused by the most fervent characters in the pro-choice movement, as well as the media, are not only inhumane – they don’t even represent the views of the majority. According to polling done by Students for Life of America, only 17% of millennials agree with the pro-abortion movement’s extreme views (i.e. permissible for all nine months for any reason). Planned Parenthood commits 35% of our country’s abortions. That’s who this little band from Portland wants its listeners to write a check to. At the end of the day, it seems our nation will be able to find a lot more unity when the most rabid of the pro-abortion crowd are able to soften the acceptance of procedures like late-term abortion.
