Krispy Kreme decided it would be nice (and constitute good publicity) to give away donuts on inauguration day. Thus, they issued a press release saying:
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.
This was, of course, a slap in Nulono’s face, which the American Life League immediately recognized, issuing a
press release of its own:
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.
The Nulonophile Vermont Traditionalist knew just what to do:
Boycott Krispy Kreme! The Vermont Traditionalist is encouraging its readers to protest the donut company Krispy Kreme for celebrating the Obama Inauguration with a “pro-choice donut.”
