Krispy Kreme's "Freedom of Choice" campaign

I certainly won't be eating a “freedom of choice” doughnut. "To a majority of Americans, these words do not connote liberty, or “tasty goodies” or patriotism at all. These words are synonymous with the painful tragedy of abortion."
"Krispy Kreme Doughnuts 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."


Maybe this is only a case of corporate ignorance and an astonishingly poor choice of words. I sure hope so.

As LifeSiteNews notes:

"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."

Perhaps you'd like to let them know what you think of their promotion."

Just in case your not familiar with Obama's infamous promise to Planned Parenthood here is the video:

"Last year before the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Barack Obama told pro-abortion activists: "The first thing I'd do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act."

FOCA would establish the right to abortion as a fundamental right (like the right to free speech) and wipe away every restriction on abortion nationwide.

It will eradicate state and federal abortion laws that the majority of Americans support and prevent states from enacting similar protective measures in the future."
