American Life hates doughtnuts, or something

American Life is some anti-abortion group, and man have they got their panties in a bunch...

Krispy Kreme will be running a promotion (as they often do) on Inauguration Day, by offering a free doughnut of choice to every customer. "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."

American Life says, "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."


I can't make this shit up, people... I'm not that dumb, or narrow-minded, or something.


*psst* I think you mean they're a "pro-life" group...

Thanks. ;-)
The whole "pro-life"/"pro-choice" thing pisses me off anyway. Each group tries to cast the other in a very nasty light, the one saying that people who approve of abortions are "anti-life" (which is patently absurd) and the other saying that those who wish to outlaw abortions are "anti-choice", THOSE have the right of it...and it's a literal truth, not some knee-jerk emotional manipulation...

Okay, so it's just the "pro-life" business that pisses me off. The pro-choice group can stay. ~_^

(seriously, I think the "pro-lifers" are so full of shit they should be returned to the Earth to allow better things to grow...)

Sounds like a plan to me. ;-)
I don't see how you can take these guys seriously. They have officially gone off the edge of the sanity map.

...that said, I'm tempted to go get my free Krispy Kreme just to piss them off, and I don't even like Krispy Kreme.
Yeah, I was saying to the person who forwarded me the original story that I was going to buy like 3 dozen doughnuts that day and bring them to work.
What. the fuck.

Yeah... I could hear my brain throwing itself into reverse to read the article a couple more times to make sure I hadn't missed something.
That is the nuttiest thing ever. This is up there with the shit I read about PETA wanting to change the word "fish" to "sea kittens".

HA! Yes! [info]artmusdin told me about that and I thought I was going to choke. Yeesh...
What the fuck is WRONG with these people?!


How is offering people a free doughnut synonymous with being on either side of the abortion debate?

I am sensing a dumb here.
Dumb of epic proportions. I mean, it's not easy coming up with that kind of dumb! I know I'm not stupidsmart enough to manage it. ;-)
Wait what? huh?

What a weird connction to make.
There is a complete lack of logic to their arguments, I agree.
Riddle me this one - there are people like this out there, who cannot see past their own over-riding obsession no matter what the subject; yet because I'm fond of games, the internet and World of Warcraft, I'm the one who has no life?
I will never figure that one out... *sigh*
I read, went "wait, what?" and popped downstairs to relate it to my fiance. He replied that it was obvious they were under the impression that America is a rigorously controlled state where no one is allowed any choice ever. Or donuts, apparently.

Which was both hilarious and strangely scary.
