One of the most discussed stories across the United States is a Politico article where the news outlet obtained an initial draft majority opinion from a Supreme Court Judge noting that Roe vs Wade will likely be overturned. Since the article was published, it has received criticism in many forms across the world with opinions being shared across social media. One company that has decided to issue a public statement is the video game company who just minutes ago decided to release a joint statement declaring their support for essential healthcare rights.
The company released the following statement:
At Bungie we believe that everyone has a right to choose their own path and that freedom is expressed across all facets of life. The leaked draft decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade represents a blow to freedom in America and is a direct attack on human rights.
By creating a divide between those who posses the fundamental right to make healthcare decisions that are right for them, and those who do not posses that same freedom, this decision, should it become final, will have far-reaching consequences that will be felt for generations across socio-economic lines.
Bungie is committed to safeguarding the freedom and privacy of its employees and providing support to all employees affected by this decision.
Standing up for reproductive choice and liberty is not a difficult decision to make, and Bungie remains dedicated to upholding these values.
If you would like to donate to organizations that support rights to healthcare, these are a few you might consider:
- URGE (Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity)
- Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice
- NARAL Pro-Choice America Foundation
- In Our Own Voice
