Woke Big Business Sells Out The Unborn

They promote murder.

Far left businesses are getting in bed with anti-capitalist political groups. They are cutting their own throats in the name of woke ideology and killing babies in the process. Marjorie Dannenfelser of ProLife America explains.

Dannenfelser: An ominous development in American politics is the explicit marriage of abortion advocacy to corporate interests, as the progressive movement and its pro-abortion base have grown increasingly strident and extreme.

In the Dobbs era, there seems to be a competition over which company can be the most pro-abortion. Scores of CEOs are practically tripping over one another to announce that they will pay travel expenses for employees who get an out-of-state abortion.

Pro-abortion advocates claim that allowing the people to have a say about protecting unborn children and their pregnant mothers written into law — saving potentially millions of lives — is “highly destabilizing for businesses.”

Pressure is mounting to include provisions that promote abortion within a company’s “Environmental, Social and Governance” (ESG) policies. ESG analyzes companies and assigns a score, based on social and political policies that have nothing to do with core business activities. Under this mantle, extreme policies have quietly been adopted by the largest fund managers in America, including BlackRock, State Street, and Vanguard.

Abortion on demand until birth, imposed by the Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade, has long been a gift to companies looking for an excuse not to implement or prioritize family-friendly policies. So it’s no surprise many of the same companies that eagerly cover abortion-related expenses mistreat their employees, particularly women — discriminating against pregnant workers and exposing female employees to unsafe working conditions.

Amazon, for example, announced in May that it would pay up to $4,000 each year to cover abortion-related travel. Yet that same month, the State of New York filed a complaint against Amazon for reportedly forcing pregnant workers to take unpaid leave rather than providing them with accommodations. In 2019, it came to light that at least seven workers had sued the company after they were denied accommodations and fired when they became pregnant. According to the report, their request “included longer bathroom breaks and fewer continuous hours on their feet.” In every case, workers were fired after informing their managers they were pregnant.

In Oklahoma, an Amazon worker suffered a miscarriage under harsh working conditions after her repeated requests for lighter work duty were denied. Pregnant workers at an Amazon warehouse required medical attention in 2011 as the result of extreme workplace temperatures.

Bank of America has been outspoken in defending Roe as “settled law” and is discussing implementing abortion related benefits. But they have been sued on multiple occasions for discriminating against pregnant employees, including one who was reportedly told by a branch manager to have an abortion…

A truly progressive company would implement policies to support working moms and families —retaining their skill and talent, not treat them as cogs and their children as an inconvenient liability. Yet such instances of deep hypocrisy go on and on, making it clear that too many woke corporate officials are looking out for their bottom line under the cover of “women’s rights.”
