A pro-choice, pro-prevention President who doesn’t demonize women who have abortions…AND free donuts on inauguration day…it’s all just too much for the American Life League. Apparently, wires in the ALL office short-circuited when the anti-choice group heard that Krispy Kreme would be giving away free donuts on Inauguration Day, heralded by the following press release:

The unfortunate reality of a post Roe v. Wade
America is that ‘choice’ is synonymous with abortion access, and
celebration of ‘freedom of choice’ is a tacit endorsement of abortion
rights on demand.
"President-elect Barack Obama promises to be the most
virulently pro-abortion president in history. Millions more children
will be endangered by his radical abortion agenda.
"Celebrating his inauguration with ‘Freedom of Choice’
doughnuts – only two days before the anniversary of the Supreme Court
decision to decriminalize abortion – is not only extremely tacky, it’s
disrespectful and insensitive and makes a mockery of a national
Best comment on the Miami New Times blog: "if they were abortion donuts, i don’t think i’d want one. i assume they’d be taking them out of the oven way too early."
