Zoom Founder Signed Letter Calling Abortion Restrictions "Bad for Business"

In June of 2019, Zoom founder Eric Yuan signed a letter organized by Planned Parenthood Federation of America, NARAL Pro-Choice America, The American Civil Liberties Union and Center for Reproductive Rights which called pro-life laws enacted in several states "bad for business" among other things.

The pro-abortion sources of the letter received signatures from over 180 U.S. companies and had the letter printed as a full-page ad in the New York Times.

An excerpt from the letter states:

"Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health, independence and economic stability of our employees and customers. Simply put, it goes against our values and is bad for business. It impairs our ability to build diverse and inclusive workforce pipelines, recruit top talent across the states, and protect the well-being of all the people who keep our businesses thriving day in and out. The future of gender equality hangs in the balance, putting our families, communities, businesses and the economy at risk."

Zoom, which received a surge in popularity as a work-from-home tool during the COVID-19 pandemic, proved that it would rather have its employees kill their children so they don't miss work than support them as mothers. This letter further supports the idea that women who choose to be mothers can't be valuable employees, and perpetuates the practice of employers discriminating against women during the hiring process.
