Texas’s largest companies stay silent on state abortion ban despite outrage


Corporations, including American Airlines and ExxonMobil, have not made statements about the ban that all but outlaws abortion

Despite the widespread outrage over a new Texas law that all but outlaws abortion in the state, only a handful of major companies have spoken out against the legislation that went into effect on 1 September.

The law relies on private citizens to carry out the ban by allowing people to file civil lawsuits against anyone who assists a woman in getting an abortion after embryonic cardiac activity is detected. A divided US supreme court declined to block it, allowing it to remain in effect as its legality is worked out in lower courts.
