Fourteen Texas Republicans to attempt passing a Bill which would Criminalize Firms covering Workers' Abortions
Gregg Abbott has "freedom" twisted...
Texas is acting up again… Nothing new (haha, this is a joke - chill out). Republican lawmakers have already begun planning their next move against abortion in a situation where the United States actually eliminates Roe. Bills will be introduced punishing companies for offering health insurance that covers abortion which could lead to the max on the bills: criminal charges against the executives of the companies…
“The state of Texas will take swift and decisive action if you do not immediately rescind your recently announced policy to pay for the travel expenses of women who abort their unborn children.”
Texas Republicans Wrote to Lyft CEO Logan Green after announcing his plan to cover the costs of abortions outside a 100-mile radius.
If this law is to pass there will be many more attacks against the companies which Texas brags about bringing to the lone star state. Remember what Governor Gregg Abbott said when Elon Musk moved?
“He knows he has a better ability to do that in Texas with the freedoms that we offer him, with the low costs that we offer him, than he does in other places, like California.”
Gregg Abbott said.
Texas brags about these freedoms, yet continuously seems to take over headlines for eliminating the freedoms of Americans and immigrants. Tesla has said they will cover employee costs in traveling for out-of-state abortion care, so now I guess the tables have turned against Elon Musk? Texas is becoming a laughing stock, just like Florida!

Mr. Abbott, that’s a lot of lost business over your idea of “freedoms.”
