Several “woke” companies are alienating pro-life customers, bashing the Texas Heartbeat bill that bans abortion after six weeks of pregnancy.
Some of the employers, not based in Texas, include ride-sharing service, Lyft; cloud-storage company, Box; online retailer Stitch Fix; and investment group Trillium Asset Management, the Wall Street Journal reports.
The statement released Tuesday reads: “restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health, independence, and economic stability of our workers and customers.”
The companies claim the anti-abortion law will cause economic harm by hindering their ability to hire workers from out of state.
Trevor Best, CEO of Syzygy Plasmonics Inc. in Houston, is concerned about how the law will impact his 40-person company, which routinely recruits out-of-state engineers and Ph.D. candidates.
“I’m trying to get them to move to Texas, and they see this, and they have to think about their families and their daughters, and is this where they want to grow their family?” Best said. “It’s challenging.”
Salesforce, which has an office in Dallas, offered to relocate any employees in Texas concerned about getting an abortion. Match Group, Bumble, and others have started funds to help pro-choice employees.
Yelp, which doesn’t have an office in the state but employs more than 100 Texans, announced the company’s foundation will double match employee contributions to groups like the Center for Reproductive Rights and Planned Parenthood.
