It is the ultimate in poor taste. The Oregon branch of the pro-abortion lobbying group known as NARAL is promoting ice cream for sale. But not just any ice cream, mind you. NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon went to Twitter to tout a “new custom flavor” which was “made exclusively for” the abortion promoter. The flavor is called “Rocky Roe v. Wade.”
That’s beyond bizarre. It’s sickening, considering the more than 60 million precious preborn children who have lost their lives to abortion since the tragic 1973 U.S. Supreme Court ruling Roe v. Wade. It is also nauseating when you think about what that court decision ultimately led to—the atrocity of partial-birth abortion, where a baby is partly delivered, then killed. The decision can also be credited with the ultimate in creepiness—the grisly trade of abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who is serving a life sentence in connection with the murders of three full-term babies. He was also responsible for the death of immigrant patient Karnamaya Mongar.
To take a treat prized by children—ice cream—and turn it into a cash cow for a pro-abortion lobbying group is outrageous. It also shows the insensitivity toward the countless mothers who grieve children lost to abortion.
There is no “fun” in this fundraiser—only the bitter aftertaste spawned by forty-five years of abortion on demand.
