…free abortions on the way???
Sooo, Krispy Kreme is giving everyone who goes there a free donut on Inaguration Day, to celebrate freedom of choice. Don’t be stupid, of course they aren’t giving away donuts to celebrate reproductive rights… but don’t tell that to conservative christian groups. They are in an uproar over this. Click here to see the statement on their website. This is really just a poorly concieved excuse to turn the Inauguration into a marketing opportunity.
Krispy Kreme is based in North fucking Carolina, do you really think they’re going to celebrate abortion with free donuts? Sure, they voted for Obama, but they also gave us Jesse Helmes. Besides, you know who eats Krispy Kreme donuts? Chubby-ass church going southerners, that’s who! Do you really think they want their customers to associate donuts with dead babies???
The uproar shows how frightened and paranoid the right-wing bible crowd is. As much as I would like there to be easy access to abortion to whoever needs one, they can rest easy because it ain’t gonna happen. As much as I hate to say it, the coming administration is going to be far too occupied with other things to worry about expanding access to healthcare (and abortions) or nixing the Defense of Marriage Act, etc. We can’t have universal healthcare and the stimulus package.
