NARAL Partners With Ice Cream Shop To Offer Abortion-Themed Flavor

A Portland-based ice cream shop partnered with the group to "save Roe."


A Portland-based ice cream shop has partnered with NARAL to create an abortion-inspired ice cream flavor to “save Roe” from Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee.

Fox News reports that for a limited time, What’s the Scoop? customers can get a pint of “Rocky Roe v. Wade” for $9.50. A NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon fundraising poster says that the pint helps defend “reproductive freedom.”

The executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon, Grayson Dempsey, responded to a tweet that criticized the fundraiser as “disgusting” for “celebrating abortions with ice cream.”

“What’s disgusting is shaming women and terrorizing local businesses. Shame on you,” wrote Dempsey on Twitter.
