Krispy Kreme thought that it was just getting into the Inaugural fun with a promotion of a free doughnut. The “freedom of choice doughnuts” is being labeled “abortion doughnuts” by the American Life League, which charges that Krispy Kreme is glazing over Obama’s pro-choice views.
Judie Brown, president of the American Life League, insists the use of the term “choice” signals support for Obama’s pro-choice views. Here is her statement:
“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.”
Just an unfortunate choice of words? For the sake of our Wednesday morning doughnut runs, we hope so. 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 tragedy.
A misconstrued concept of “choice” has killed over 50 million preborn children since Jan. 22, 1973. Does Krispy Kreme really want their free doughnuts to celebrate this “freedom”?
As of Thursday morning, Krispy Kreme Communications Director Brian Little could not be reached for comment. We challenge Krispy Kreme doughnuts to reaffirm their commitment to true freedom – to the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness – and to separate themselves and their doughnuts from our great American shame.
I hear that they are going to introduce a donut called The Morning After Rise and Shine Donut containing RU-286.
I am only glad to see that someone is watching the silent conspiracy of pro-choice radicals to take control of our doughnut production. It goes beyond mere symbolism. These tasty morsels are known to be favored by police officers, who will then become part of a paramilitary arm of NARAL. Then there is the fact that the doughnut is the same shape as a common symbol of feminists. Before we allow Krispy Kreme [apple[ fritter away our freedoms, people need to rise up.
This should not come as any surprise after the recent disclosure of a pro-terrorism conspiracy by Dunkin Donut. Why are the doughnut people so radical? They are intent on sprinkling our society with fanaticism through fried dough. Fortunately, the good people of the American Life League are watching the doughnut menace.
