Donuts on Demand!

Emily Douglas

Free donuts on inauguration day? Those must be pro-abortion donuts, says the American Life League.

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:

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc. (NYSE: KKD) is honoring American’s sense
of pride and freedom of choice on Inauguration Day, by offering a free
doughnut of choice to every customer on this historic day, Jan. 20. By
doing so, participating Krispy Kreme stores nationwide are making an
oath to tasty goodies — just another reminder of how oh-so-sweet
‘free’ can be.

Seeing the words "freedom" "of" and "choice" one next to the other, ALL made the only conclusion they could have made: those are pro-abortion donuts Krispy Kreme plans to give away!

ALL issued a press release of its own:

The following is a statement from American Life League president Judie Brown:

next time you stare down a conveyor belt of slow-moving, hot, sugary
glazed donuts at your local Krispy Kreme, you just might be supporting
President-elect Barack Obama’s radical support for abortion on demand –
including his sweeping promise to sign the Freedom of Choice Act as
soon as he steps in the Oval Office, Jan. 20.

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."
