A Pro-life iPad App from Pampers?

Pampers iPad App - Hello Baby

Isn’t it sad that we are surprised when a big corporation does something overtly pro-life? Most are so focused on not offending anybody that they wouldn’t dream of doing something so violent to their bottom line as promoting the dignity of an unborn baby.

So I was pleasantly surprised by this new iPad app from Pampers. I do realize, however, that their bottom line is indeed driven by more babies being born, not less. But, hey, I won’t waste much time questioning motivations and I’ll just be grateful for it! Check out the cool video about it below:

These are the kinds of cool advancements in technology that are going to eventually win this issue of Life. The truth is a powerful thing. Once people face it, they have a harder and harder time resisting it.

The app is free, from what I understand. But the iPad is not…which is why I don’t have one yet. Have any iPad owners out there tried this app out yet?

Oh and here’s a cool pic (source) of somebody using the app at a bar:

I’m not sure if she is reminding every one at the bar of the consequences of sex, trying to fend off any potential suitors, or promoting the dignity of the human person in the womb. Either way, it’s probably a good message.

I wouldn’t so much call it pro-life as someone who would use this app has probably committed to having the baby.

I think I agree with both of you :) Reading the post was a great way to start the day anyway.

Perhaps cautioning against mixing pregnancy and drinking? But a bar might not be the best place to test one’s personal resistance to the “high” alcohol falsely promises, especially if one is used to indulging in recreational intoxication.

On the broader theme of Christian and traditional family values, has anyone noticed where in the Folgers’ coffee commercial they’re (however subtly) promoting a crucial component of courtship? – http://www.tvsquad.com/2010/03/30/2010-folgers-ad-sounds-like-it-was-made-in-1962/ This one not unexpectedly has drawn a lot of negative comments from liberals and feminists; but it was wonderful to see on mainstream network television. :)

Um, yeah, a little weird to have the app on display in front of her belly at the bar, but a wonderful thing from Pampers.

Churchmouse – YES – the Folgers ad is great…the girl actually goes home and isn’t already living with her fiance, plus he apparently asked the Dad for her hand in marriage!

Why is this considered pro-life? Would a TV show on Discovery Health that shows the development of a fetus also be considered pro-life? Most if not all people know they are killing a living thing, they just don’t care.

Actually Seth, misinformation and outright lies still abound around this subject. I see it all the time; it pervades the culture.
