UK Candy Company is Selling ‘Trump Sucks’ Lollipops to Raise Money for Planned Parenthood
Donald Trump has inspired burgers in Russia and bologna sandwiches, and now he has a confection in the U.K. shaped like his face to serve some sweet politics. Candy company Smith and Sinclair is speaking out against Trump’s presidency by selling limited edition “Trump Sucks” lollipops and donating one hundred percent of the proceeds to the International Planned Parenthood Foundation.
The candy company was inspired to support Planned Parenthood through its new product after Trump reinstated the Mexico City Policy (aka the “global gag rule”), an anti-abortion policy that requires nongovernmental organizations to certify that they will not provide or even promote abortion in order to receive U.S. government funding for family planning education and reproductive health services, according to the Center for Health and Gender Equality. The International Planned Parenthood Foundation is unable to qualify for funding under this policy.
The company says that the first 500 lollipops have sold out, but the next batch will be shipped on May 8.
