Over 170 CEOs signed a Pro-abortion letter claiming that Abortion was a human right and opposing the laws that have been passed in many states.
More than 170 CEOs have signed a letter opposing laws and regulations that restrict women’s reproductive healthcare, including abortion.
The letter appears today as a full-page ad in The New York Times under the heading “Don’t Ban Equality,” and comes less than a month after Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed the most restrictive abortion legislation in the U.S., banning doctors from performing abortion at any stage of pregnancy, punishable by 99 years in prison. The law includes no exceptions for cases of rape or incest.
Several other states — including Georgia, Arkansas, Indiana and Missouri — have adopted similar laws this year.
Twitter and Square Chief Executive Officer Jack Dorsey, along with fashion designer Rebecca Minkoff, Diane Von Furstenburg, and CEOs from companies including Yelp, H&M, The Body Shop and Glossier, say they signed the letter to send a clear message that restricting access to reproductive care, including abortion, is “against our values, and is bad for business.”
Such legislation, the executives write, inhibits “our ability to build diverse and inclusive workforce pipelines, recruit top talent across the states, and protect the well-being of all the people who keep our businesses thriving day in and day out.”
Andrea Blieden, U.S. general manager of The Body Shop, told CNBC that “access to reproductive health care is recognized as a human right” and said the letter emphasizes the company’s outlook that it is essential for U.S. law to “respect, protect and fulfill the human rights of women.”
“We believe that a woman’s ability to access reproductive health care is critical to her autonomy, economic success, physical and mental health and general empowerment in the workplace,” said Blieden. “As a brand that stands for equality and women’s empowerment, we believe it’s important that we take a stand and join this cause.”
Seventh Generation CEO Joey Bergstein said that now more than ever, it’s essential for CEOs and executives to speak up.
“We’re deep believers that companies and businesses can and must be a force for good,” he said. “You’ll notice in our mission that we don’t talk at all about selling eco-friendly home and personal care products. We talk about the change we’re trying to create in the world, and that’s inclusive of social change, with this being a pivotal issue.”
The elites are continuing their war on Conservatives. They claim that these laws ban equality but they don’t mention what Men can do that Women can’t do. Are men able to kill a baby at any stage in life? Thank God not. The myth perpetrated by the elites is a disgusting one. It is one that is allowing the baby killing industry that is abortion to continue.
