Just when you thought today’s progressive society could not sink any lower, a little tidbit out of uber-liberal Portland, Oregon, is a reminder that some people are hard at work trying to smear even simple and innocent activities — like enjoying ice cream in the summertime.
Ice cream shop What’s the Scoop? in Portland has been busy creating an abortion-themed flavor called “Rocky Roe V. Wade.”
Why? Because it’s trying to raise money for National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League (NARAL) Pro-Choice Oregon, as Red State reported.
It’s also trying to “resist” the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, as The Daily Wire noted.
Makes a person long for the days when ice cream was just … ice cream.
Ice cream, plain and simple.
And not a political statement of the worst kind.

Each pint of this ice cream costs $9.50, and half of the proceeds from the sales of the dessert will be donated to NARAL, Red State noted.
Many people on Twitter were disgusted by What’s the Scoop’s tweet announcing the new flavor.
Or, as writer Amelia Hamilton put it very succinctly, “This is honestly so gross. These people are ghouls.”
And here’s a selection of tweets about this development.
This takes the evil to a whole new level.

This is disgusting in so many levels. I hope women wake up and see this is all about money.

Rocky like the legal reasoning behind the decision. Fitting.

Doesn’t matter where your stance on abortion is, it’s still a surgical, invasive procedure to terminate a pregnancy – & you’ve made a flavor of ice cream dedicated to it. That’s psychotic. Would you like a side of fava beans & a straight jacket w that?
