When real life imitates The Onion:

Pro-Life Group up in Arms over Krispy Kreme's Abortion Doughnuts

Krispy Kreme, being the genial purveyor of glazed goodness that it is, decided to get in on the Obama inauguration craze and is offering one free doughnut to every costumer on January 20, Inauguration day, and released this seemingly innocuous 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."
Well, The American Life League noticed the liberal use of the word choice and decided to blast the chain bakery for producing abortion doughnuts.

"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," the group's president, Judie Brown said in a statement.

There's more to this story, and the entire press release from these American Life League nutjobs can be read over here.

And it gets better, these whackos have a website, too. Complete with a counter of "deaths since Roe v. Wade". Wow.

And while I'm venting about anti-rights groups, I found something worth sharing: "The Only Moral Abortion is My Abortion". Yep, it's an article about when anti-abortion people get abortions themselves. Funny, isn't it?
