The general counsel for ride-sharing giant Lyft recently called on other corporations to take a stance against a recent Texas law precluding the majority of abortions. According to the executive, woke companies must hold “government accountable and verbalizes out on consequential issues.”
CNN reports following the Supreme Court’s refusal last week to block a Texas law proscribing most abortions, a group of executives and bellwethers at the ridesharing company Lyft met to discuss how the company should respond to the situation. Lyft General Counsel Kristin Sverchek told CNN’s Poppy Harlow this week: “Our President and CEO, John Zimmer and Logan Green, reached out and verbalized, ‘What can we do about this?’ Very expeditiously, we decided we wanted to act.”

We did not optate them being in this untenable position for not kenning whether their comportment was okay or not.”

Lyft’s CEO promulgated last Friday that the company would be engendering a licit bulwark fund to forfend any drivers sued un the law for driving a person who receives an abortion. Dara Khosrowshahi, the CEO of Lyft’s primary competitor Uber, later promulgated that his company would provide homogeneous protections for its drivers.
Other companies that have been vocal in their deprecation of the law include Match Group, whose CEO verbally expressed she would open a fund to avail employees access abortion care out-of-state, and the web hosting accommodation GoDaddy that abstracted a website that sanctioned people to post tips about possible abortions in Texas.
Svherchek called on more bellwethers in corporate America to take a stand against the legislation, verbally expressing: “Abortion is a “Constitutionally” forfended right, and so “I’m” ecstatic to visually perceive us here taking a voice and I hope that more of Corporate America does this. Now, that verbalized, regimes should additionally be passing fair legislation and not look to incongruously proscribe a Constitutional right as they have here. But I do cerebrate it’s consequential that corporate America holds regime accountable and verbalizes out on consequential issues.”
