Due to the fact that Democratic Governors just can’t give any companies a decent economic environment, they have taken to trying to promise Big Business that their employees will be able to have free access to abortions.
In an odd turn of events, the more progressive governors such as Phil Murphy in New Jersey and Gavin Newsom from California seem to think using a sales pitch of legal abortions will allow them to rope back in companies who have previously chosen to abandon their state.
“We’ve got your back, but come back,” stated Newsom as part of a Friday morning news conference while lauding the heavily liberal abortion laws for California. “Some of you may have left the state, come on back. Some businesses may have left, come on back. It’s a point of pride that we welcome you back; we want to celebrate that we have you back.”
Murphy chose to just make his approach far more direct by sending personalized letters to firms all over the country.
Not long after it was leaked that the Supreme Court of the United States was in a position to overturn Roe v. Wade, it was reported by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) that Murphy chose to send out letters to seven companies all over Georgia, with each holding a warning that such a repeal of Roe would end up making it far harder for them to find “top female talent.”
“The overturning of a woman’s right to bodily autonomy — and the chilling effect this decision will have on your ability to attract and retain top female talent by being located in a state which has refused to recognize women’s reproductive freedom — cannot be ignored,” stated one of the letters as reported by the AJC.
The outlet also highlighted that Murphy’s office also sent out a version of the letter in question “to more than 50 companies in states with anti-abortion laws, including Florida, Missouri, Ohio and Texas.”
“Economic strength is about more than just value — it is about values,” stated the press secretary for Murphy, Alyana Alfaro Post, via a release given to the AJC.
“Governor Murphy encourages businesses looking to stand with their employees to look to New Jersey, a state where they can be confident that the rights of women, the LGBTQIA+ community, and voters will always be protected,” she went on.
Additionally, another Democratic governor, Ned Lamont from Connecticut, also tried to trick businesses from red states to make the move over to the very solidly blue Nutmeg State.
“We don’t have oil and natural gas, but we have one of the most productive, best trained, most innovative workforces in the world. And that starts with the fact that we have more women participating in our workforce than just about anywhere else,” claimed Lamont via a video pitch on Twitter.
“We’re a family-friendly state that respects women. I know some of you are in states like Texas which are outlawing a woman’s right to choose. We have codified, we are protecting a woman’s right to choose because that’s about respect” he went on.
“Look, any of you business owners thinking about making a move — give me a call. I’d love to hear from you,” concluded Lamont.
