Women directors and CEOs of corporations funding sponsors of Ohio's abortion ban

Ohio is about to pass an abortion ban that is even more restrictive than Texas. Women lead the corporations donating the abortion bill's sponsors.

The Ohio bill, which is co-sponsored by 35 House Republicans, bans all abortions at any time during pregnancy with no exceptions for rape or incest. The corporations funding sponsors of these bills have impressive slogans.

  • 'Honesty and integrity form the cornerstone of our company.' - Nationwide Insurance
  • 'At Johnson & Johnson, we believe good health is the foundation of vibrant lives, thriving communities and forward progress.' J&J
  • 'Do the right thing, no compromise. This underpins all our other values, and it begins with how we treat our customers and each other.' - AT&T
  • 'Our purpose is grounded in our commitment to fund programs that provide public benefit, advance medical care and improve patient outcomes.' - Pfizer
  • 'Anthem is dedicated to delivering better care to our members, providing greater value to our customers and helping improve the health of our communities.' - Anthem

Talk is cheap. Perhaps these companies should live up to their own self claimed values. Connect the dots with this relationship map.

Extreme abortion bill

"The bill could be interpreted to prohibit or limit forms of emergency contraception and birth control. The bill defines an "unborn child" as "an individual organism of the species homo sapiens from fertilization until live birth." In the scientific community, pregnancy is defined as "when a fertilized egg has implanted in the wall of her uterus." Some birth control works "by thinning the lining of [the] uterus so that even if an egg is fertilized, it doesn’t implant." By defining a fertilized egg that hasn't been implanted as an "unborn child," the bill could arguably make these forms of birth control illegal. 

The Ohio bill mimics the Texas enforcement model. The state's total abortion ban would be enforced by anti-abortion vigilantes. "Any person" could sue someone who helps a woman get an abortion in Ohio. Successful plaintiffs would be awarded at least $10,000. Law enforcement would not have a role — a gimmick designed to evade judicial review." - Popular Information

Far right deceptive group

The legislation is sponsored by Ohio Representatives Jena Powell (R) who is affiliated with the controversial anti-abortion group Live Action. The group has published videos falsely "claiming Planned Parenthood harvested and sold fetal body parts." In 2019, the group was permanently banned from Pinterest for spreading "harmful misinformation, [which] includes medical misinformation and conspiracies that turn individuals and facilities into targets for harassment or violence." Powell introduced the bill shortly after appearing at a Live Action event in Los Angeles. In a press release, Live Action said it had "partnered" with Powell on the "historic" legislation. Powell's abortion ban, known as the 2363 Act, shares a name with Live Action's advocacy campaign to end all abortions.

Corporate values?

"Public policy decisions can significantly affect GM’s strategies, operations, and, ultimately, shareholder value. To protect shareholder value, GM exercises its fundamental right and responsibility to participate in the legislative, regulatory, and political processes to ensure decision makers are informed by our expertise and insights when considering policies that impact our company, our shareholders, our customers and our employees. GM does this by making political contributions to candidates and entities that support our industry and our vision for the future of mobility, by engaging in direct and indirect lobbying, and by participating in various business and policy organizations that advocate positions designed to support GM’s business and enhance long-term shareholder value." - General Motors

GM shareholders and customers should ask how banning abortions aligns with General Motor's vision?

TakeAway: Call out corporate hypocrisy. Do you really want to spend your hard-earned money with such companies?
