Even though practically all of Hollywood and various tech companies have threatened to boycott Georgia if lawmakers do not overturn the recently enacted fetal heartbeat law, the state’s largest employer— Delta Airlines — has opted to stay neutral.
“Delta Air Lines is one of the largest employers in Georgia, but the airline’s chief executive said Tuesday the company will not take a stand on the state’s restrictive abortion law, which other corporate leaders have called ‘bad for business,’” reports NBC News.
The article goes on to state the following:
The fetal heartbeat law essentially bans abortion once doctors detect an unborn child’s heartbeat in the mom’s womb, which typically happens after 5-6 weeks of pregnancy. Ed Bastian, Delta Airlines CEO, said that the courts should decide the law’s fate.
“This is something that the courts need to settle and resolve, not corporate America. At least for us. I can’t win,” Bastian said at Recode’s annual Code Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Bastian added that the company did not want to take a stand on “an issue that is uncomfortable” for the many workers and customers that patronize Delta Airlines. “We carry 200 million people a year, we have 80,000 workers,” he said. “We cannot as a company take one group and put it over another group when you’ve got such an emotional — some would say almost religious — view as to what the right answer is.”
