CEOs from 180 companies say they want to empower “everyone” in big pro-abortion ad in the New York Times

180 different CEOs have come out against the pro-life laws going up in states around the country with an ad in the New York Times.

The ad obnoxiously suggests that abortion is about equality and ‘healthcare’:

Don’t Ban Equality

It’s time for companies to stand up for reproductive healthcare

Equality in the workplace is one of the most important business issues of our time.

When everyone is empowered to succeed, our companies, our communities and our economy are better for it.

Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health, independence and economic stability of our employees and customers. Simply put, it goes against our values and is bad for business. It impairs 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 out.

The future of gender equality hangs in the balance, putting our families, communities, businesses and the economy at risk.

We, the undersigned, represent more than 108,000 workers and stand against policies that hinder people’s health, independence and ability to fully succeed in the workplace. Complete list of signers below.



“When everyone is empowered”??? With all this talk about equality and healthcare, the one person that is completely ignored is the most innocent of them all, the unborn child. It’s is a nightmare of the worst kind for those little innocent children who end up suffering at the hands of these anti-science, anti-Christian elites who think they know better. I just don’t know what to say anymore.

The entire list of companies and their CEOs is too long to put here unfortunately. A few highlights, however, include the CEOs from Twitter, Slack, Yelp, H&M, Tinder, Postmates, Ben and Jerry’s and many, many more that you probably aren’t familiar with.

You can view the entire list either in an article by CNN or at the actual website of the wretched ad itself. If you see anyone prominent that I’ve not mentioned in this article, list them in the comment section.

Let’s go ahead and kill off our labor market because we are doing such a great job of maintaining and finding employees already.

I find it interesting these CEO’s are willing to put their companies on the line for a law that was based on a LIE in the first place. https://dontbanequality.com/ About The “Don’t Ban Equality” statement is in response to an alarming trend of bans passing in states across the country that restrict access to comprehensive reproductive healthcare, including abortion. Business leaders are stepping up to say that these bans go against their company values and negatively affect efforts to promote equality in the workplace, putting businesses, communities and the economy at risk. The effort to secure business leaders to sign the The “Don’t Ban Equality” statement is led by national organizations working to protect and expand access to reproductive health care, including Planned Parenthood Federation of America, NARAL Pro-Choice America, The American Civil Liberties Union and Center for Reproductive Rights. These organizations will continue to work together to provide opportunities… Read more »

Didn’t have time before to look at the whole list before but I don’t think I’ve heard of more than 90% of these companies. Most of them sound like places where people who think like they do shop or do business so the majority of us who stand for life won’t be affected. 100% of them though I never do (or in an extremely marginal way) business with at all. They are only virtue signaling to their choirs. My in-laws knew both the original Ben and Jerry and neither one liked or bought their ice cream.

The hypocrisy is in the fact that illegal alien women cross our borders pregnant and ready to deliver a BABY and in turn when the child is born they receive the GIFT of citizenship for the life of that child. Yet, everyday, women in America are snuffing out the LIFE of their unborn children.

Has anyone cancelled their twitter account, yet. Fortunately, I don’t have one. I can only see this hurting these businesses. And, that would be a good thing for the LIFE of the unborn child.

Question, the article says the companies represent 108,000 employees, did they all sign on? doubt it. And who represented the 638,169 BABIES aborted in the USA 2018? Anyone?

Where is equality for the unborn baby? Has anyone watched a video of a baby moving as far up in the womb as he or she can, to escape the pain of doctors who have chosen to take those little precious babies lives? Anyone who supports abortion has no morals. I have counselled with many women who suffer from the memories of killing their own child. It is a very sad and heart braking situation.

If this was the 19th century these cretins would be using the same arguments in relation to slavery. When they strip the rights of a group to serve their special interests then they are no better than the slavery owners of those times. They are also incredibly ignorant. They are empowering the destruction of their future workforce. If people continue on with a one child mindset that treats children as little “princes”, “princesses” or even “pets” who will in all probability think that they shouldn’t have to or be asked to work where will the future workers come from? These companies will only have a choice to hire from the tiny pool that will be left and it will be their own fault. Welcome to the kingdom of the stupid.

In most situations it may not be. But sometimes it is, such as when the mother’s life is at risk and the abortion alleviates that risk. That’s healthcare.

I’m sorry, but your claims are not consistent with the view of medical professionals who routinely deal with these issues. At best, the argument you present is about semantics. For example, in some situations a woman must be treated by medically inducing a miscarriage. Some argue that this isn’t technically an abortion, but the fetus doesn’t survive nonetheless. Some of those medical professionals who claim (disingenuously, I believe) that abortions are never necessary also readily acknowledge that the unborn child may not survive such treatments. How can this be? They simply define abortion as never medically necessary, and distinguish everything else by calling it treatment rather than abortion. Don’t believe me?

You’re purposefully deflecting and using semantics because it doesn’t support your previous arguments. You agreed that abortion is the purposeful intent of killing the pre-born human baby. That is separate and parcel from a medical procedure to assist the pregnant women that inadvertently results in the loss of the child. Two completely separate intentions. This isn’t difficult to grasp.

You’re very good at deflecting and obfuscating the crux of abortion. So, instead of arguing on the peripherals, why don’t you provide your opinion on whether abortion should be legal and if so when in gestation it should be legal and your reasoning behind butessing your opinion.

Wow! You are just making things up!

I did NOT agree to that particular definition of abortion. Quit putting words in my mouth!

“Despite your word games, medical science is clear, sometimes ending the pregnancy alleviates the health threat to the mother.”

Wrong. Sometimes in an attempt to alleviate the threat to the mother the pre-born child may die. That’s wholly separate from abortion which is the purposeful killing of a pre-born baby.

Now since that is behind us do you care to give your opinion on abortion, or do you just want to keep deflecting on tertiary issues?

T_ump

LOL. This is just silly. Of course the fetus may die. Inducing miscarriage tends to to that. Likewise regarding other procedures that medical professionals use to save women. This idea that there is never a need for the fetus to die in order to save the patient is just plain unscientific.

As for me giving you any more of “my opinion on abortion” you’ve got to be kidding me. You’ve called me a liar, falsely claimed I agreed to your disingenuously manipulated definition, and you are absolutely playing games regarding whether it is ever necessary to end a pregnancy to protect the patient. I have zero confidence that you have the willingness or ability to have any sort of intelligent conversation on the issue.

You don’t induce miscarriages. You induce a delivery. To induce a miscarriage is to intentionally abort the pre-born baby and you’re castigating me for semantics?

It’s a simple request, what is your position on abortion?

T_ump

Gee, what a surprise. More word games. Keep spinning, but even you know that in order to save the patient, sometimes medical professionals takes steps which will result on the the fetus not surviving.

So you have come full circle. You originally stated,

“mother’s life is at risk and the abortion alleviates that risk. That’s healthcare.”

I made the point of saying abortion (the intentional killing of the unborn baby) is never medically required to save the life of the mother.

Then lastly you said, “in order to save the patient, sometimes medical professionals takes steps which will result on the the fetus not surviving.”

That is not the intentional killing of the unborn baby and not abortion. Just as an induced delivery for complications may result in the death of the baby, it is not intended to kill the pre-born child. These are not semantics, it’s the difference in intent.

I’m glad we are finally in agreement that abortion is never medically justified to address the health of the mother.

Unfortunately it is not hyperbole. Your little word game – where you pretend that continuing with a pregnancy never puts a women at a greatly increased risk of death and serious illness – distorts reality. Laws get passed which put medical professionals in an impossible position. If they abide by their duties as doctors they will risk a lifetime in jail, whereas if they follow the law despite those duties, women will die or suffer serious injury and illness. Women will die.

“continuing with a pregnancy never puts a women at a greatly increased risk of death and serious illness”

I never made that claim. Of course pregnancy brings certain risks than otherwise not being pregnant. My claim was that intentionally killing the baby is never a certified solution to the life of the mother. Emergency delivery…. Yes. Aborting the baby…. No. That is wholly separate from an UNintentional death of a pre-born baby when attempting to address health risks to the mother.

Is your claim that because pregnancy carries risk that killing the baby is always a medical option thus ipsofacto reducing risk associated with pregnancy?

T_ump

Still with the word games? Sometimes the mother survives only because the doctor knowingly took steps which he knew would mean the fetus would not survive. Believe it or not, doctors are aware that, in many situations, severing the link between mother and fetus means that the fetus will not survive. So is that “intentionally killing the baby?” Or the unintentional death of a pre born baby? What you are trying to do here is twisted. Women will die because people like don’t want to acknowledge that sometimes the mother’s survival necessitates that the fetus must die. These new laws have doctors going to jail for life. You think many doctors are going to step in and do what is necessary to save these women when some nutty prosecutor can lock them up for life if that prosecutor decides that the life saving decision “intentionally killed the baby?” As for… Read more »

I’m not sure why this is so difficult for you to understand. To my knowledge there is not a condition by which the doctor saves the life of the woman by killing the baby. Emergency delivery…. Yes, but not the intentional killing of the baby. So what are these conditions by which the doctor needs to kill the baby to save her life?

And please refrain from the hyperbole, it doesn’t stress your point, it just makes it look emotional.

T_ump
Member
T_ump

To your knowledge? Well . . . therein lies the problem. You obviously have little knowledge beyond talking points. For any pregnancy less than about 22 or 23 weeks, the morbidity rate is 100 in 100. For a few weeks after that, the chances of survival are still slim. And the rates are even worse for mothers with severe health problems! So for the bulk of any pregnancy, any condition treated by your euphemistically named “emergency delivery” is nothing but an induced miscarriage. You can play the fool all you like, but the doctor is not performing “emergency delivery,” he is intentionally ending the pregnancy to save the mother. Even your disingenuous doctors who came up with this smoke and mirrors show now admit that their little word game has no merit at 20 weeks or before. Why is that so difficult for you to understand?

Mental health = reproductive healthcare? Is your brain in your pelvis?

I think perhaps you missed the part where I indicated I wasn’t talking about abortion at all. Maybe it was below, I don’t remember. Anyway, I explicitly said so somewhere.

But let me state it again, so we are clear. There are a lot more aspects to women’s healthcare than just delivering babies, and I am NOT talking about abortion.

And yes, mental health can be a factor in reproductive healthcare, as with any other healthcare. And again, I am not talking about abortion here. The mental well being of the patient should and does factor into a woman’s (or a man’s) decisions regarding her reproductive health, as well as her/his actual healthcare.

Agree if a person is mentally incapable of handling the rearing of children, they shouldn’t have kids. Practicing birth control would be a good idea in that case. Still not sure what that has to do with “decisions regarding reproductive health.” Either reproductive organs are healthy or they aren’t since we’re now obviously not talking about birthing children. Hormones can affect moods and energy levels, which I can see how that would apply to a mental state, but if attended to that can be alleviated.

T_ump

Birth control is certainly a decision impacting reproductive health, as are decisions relating to sexually activity, disease prevention, nutrition, drug and substance use, physical activity, sleep, and mental health. Women’s reproductive health involves the physical and mental health of the woman and her reproductive system pre-puberty, pre-conception, during pregnancy, during and after child-birth, and during and after menopause. It can involve wellness exams, self exams, cancer screenings, genetics, disease prevention, fertility issues, and much more. But surely you know all of this, and that none of this is in the least bit controversial.

Unfortunately, many women, especially poor and uneducated women, lack access to reproductive healthcare.

Not sure why you and everyone else insists on ignoring this, but I’m not talking about abortion.

Without sound reproductive health, a woman may not even be able to have a baby if she so chooses. In fact she may not be able to survive at all.

You troll through looking to nitpick and agitate. This is what happens. You are enjoying yourself. For whatever reason, it must be adding something you view as positive to your daily existence. Otherwise, what’s the point?

That may be how you perceive it, but that is not my intention. I think it important that when discussing women’s reproductive health, that the conversation doesn’t get sidetracked into the usual abortion vs. having the child debate. It is easy to lose track of this but I feel it is fundamental, yet it gets lost in all the posturing.

Look at the posts above, for example. I’ve said again and again that when I talk about reproductive health, I’m not talking about abortion, yet most every post is coming at me and assigning to me something about abortion that I didn’t say. And you accuse me of trolling because I correct the record when someone tries to make my post about something it is not? How’s that work?

You tell me. How does that work? You do it here all of the time. That is your intention. It’s why I tell you to stop being obtuse. I think the issue here with abortion and repro healthcare being conflated is because that’s what the Democrat mantra is and what this CEO statement says and you come around with your trolling all of the time, and I don’t think anyone here cares what you’re saying because well, why would they?

I’m not being obtuse. You just don’t want to hear what I have to say. I’m certainly not begging you to read my posts or respond.

What you have to say doesn’t bother me actually. I ignore your comments often. I see nitpicking at people when I think you aren’t stupid and do get the point someone is trying to make but want to troll whomever for maybe not using the right wording to your satisfaction. I think you look for that in.

The unborn baby needs to be empowered more then anyone for he or she doesn’t have a voice.

Blah blah blah Marxist equality blah blah blah abortion blah blah blah reproductive healthcare. Not one word about the babies they want to kill. I saw a great post on FB that said “Abortion is when a baby gets the death penalty for someone else’s actions.”

With the exception of Ben&Jerry’s which I do not purchase anyway or Yelp which I will stop using, I do not recognize any of the other companies. I haven’t seen any movies in a very long time so Disney is out as well. I hope I wouldn’t be unknowingly using any of their unnamed products. If a good number of us on the conservative side shop somewhere else, these companies can go in the tank with their bottom line.
