The popular donut company, Krispy Kreme, has decided to celebrate the anti-life beliefs of President-elect Barack Obama by offering a free “doughnut of choice” to every customer on Inauguration Day.
“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,” the company said in a press statement. “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.”
While many are claiming it was just an unfortunate choice of words and that the pro-life crowd is over-reacting, Krispy Kreme has not responded to calls for clarification.
“As of Thursday morning, Krispy Kreme Communications Director Brian Little could not be reached for comment,” said Judie Brown, founder of the American Life League. “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.”
Brown goes on to say that it was indeed a bad choice of words. “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, she add, with 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.”
