What does abortion taste like? If I had to guess, I would bet that it’s pretty bitter and has an unpleasant aftertaste that lingers for the rest of your life.
For a more concrete answer, you’ll need to stop by What’s The Scoop, a Portland area ice-cream vendor, which has teamed up with NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon to develop a pro-abortion ice cream flavor. Its name in case you haven’t guessed is “Rocky Roe vs. Wade.”
On second thought, don’t stop by, even if you’re in Portland. The joke, if that’s what it’s intended to be, is pretty tasteless.
According to NARAL, the flavor, which is available for a limited time, is intended to “help defend reproductive freedom.” How exactly it doesn’t say.

The Daily Wire’s Emily Zanotti notes when that Portland political consultant Jonathan Lockwood criticized NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon’s leader Grayson Demspey for trivializing a very serious issue, Dempsey became defensive and accused Lockwood of “shaming women.” Sounds about right. Someone criticizes the Left over its insensitivity, and it retreats into the womb.
As for the name of the flavor, it’s pretty sappy. They left the really good possibilities on the cutting room flavor. I would have opted for “I Scream, You Scream, Your Baby Screams,” but maybe that’s not the message they’re looking to promote.
