Krispy Kreme and Abortion, Together at Last

Great catch by our sister paper Miami New Times: An Inauguration Day offer from Krispy Kreme has prompted an absolutely insane response from a pro-life organization.

Here's the deal: On Tuesday, every Krispy Kreme customer is entitled to one free doughnut. Or, as the official Krispy Kreme press release would have it, the company 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."

Hooray, right? Everyone loves a free doughnut. Well, not if you're the American Life League, which fired off a press release that truly has to be read to be believed. After the jump, the beginning of that release, which tells you all you need to know:

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

The 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 doughnut giant released the following statement yesterday:
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.
Thankfully, there is no truth to the rumor that Dunkin' Donuts has responded by requiring minors to obtain parental consent before choosing a doughnut.
