Only in Portland, Oregon, can you expect to find an abortion-themed ice cream flavor.
The new flavor, created to help “defend reproductive freedom,” is the end result of a collaboration between NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon and a local creamery, What’s the Scoop.
The product’s name: “Rocky Roe v. Wade.”
We've partnered with @WhatstheScoopdx by offering ice cream pints for sale for a limited time only, including a new custom flavor made exclusively for NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon: Rocky Roe v. Wade!

Customers can purchase a pint of the abortion-themed ice cream for $9.50 up until August 26, with half of all proceeds going to NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon, according to the organization’s website.
In effect, it’s a fundraiser.
“At least the ad doesn’t have a little girl taking a bite out of ice cream cone. I guess even NARAL draws the line somewhere,” National Right to Life News opined.
The reaction online centered around just how evil the concept of using ice cream to celebrate abortion is. Here’as a sampling of responses from Twitter:
What . In . The . Hell….

Tastes like death

Really poor taste to do this!Abortion is one of those things even if you support the decision, it is not something that should be celebrated. Wonder what flavor they will come up with for hospice, euthanasia…. Alzheimers… ice cream of all things!

Rocky like the legal reasoning behind the decision. Fitting.

The defense of abortion gets even more morbid as National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL)partners with @WhatstheScoopdx who now have a “new custom flavor”called Rocky Roev.Wade flavor.
They should’ve made the ice cream to be blood red😏since it’s all about aborting babies. https://t.co/26L4I9jOww
