CWA’s Senior Director of Government Relations, Doreen Denny, penned the following opinion piece featured on The Daily Signal:
“As more states pass restrictions on abortion, companies are coming out of the woodwork to oppose them.
Recently, some 180 companies “employing more than 108,000 workers” purchased a full-page ad in The New York Times under the banner “Don’t Ban Equality: It’s time for companies to stand up for reproductive health care.”
Translation: It’s time for businesses to defend abortion.
Many of these companies aren’t typically considered far-left organizations. Exactly what message are they sending to women by spending ad dollars to promote abortion? Are they saying babies are bad for business?
A closer look at these companies may help to unmask what’s driving this ad.
It turns out that only two of them are listed among the top 180 companies offering the most paid maternity leave to women, according to Fairygodboss, a women’s career advancement network. And those two companies are nowhere near the top of the list.
In other words, these companies are stingy. They aren’t supporting women; they’re protecting their bottom line.”
