The economics of Hell: Corporate America responds to Roe

In response to the Roe decision, we hear from a veritable who's who of zillion dollar global corporations trying to turn the world into a global medieval fief.  They have pledged to pay for any employee wishing to travel to a different state for an abortion.  That's because drugged up and sexed up godless nihilists make great consumers of corporate pandering.  I see this, and the country going bat crazy to stop the babies from being saved, and I can think of nothing so much as this being America's future:

After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory. And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.”

And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.’ Therefore her plagues will come in one day—death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.

                                                                                                                                Revelation 18.1-9 

For the record, here is the list from Hell's boardrooms:

  1. Ahem! I get about the cynicism of reactions to Roe.
    However.... Before we all embrace Jonathan Edwards' impending fire and brimstone disaster, ...we ought consider that other nations have as bad or worse laws regarding abortion. If we seek to "come out of her" as indicated, we may merely trade one murderous state for another.
    Besides that, it's true that California and New York have declared intent to become "abortion havens". It's ALSO true that 13 other States have already passed "trigger laws" to forbid abortions. Others--including mine--may soon take up similar legislative action.
    Now is the time for rejoicing!
    ...And pressing hard for more pro-life legislators!
    Pres Biden has indicated disappointment with the ruling. Speaker Pelosi has declared that mid-terms are now about abortion. Let's make this the year we mostly abolished abortion!

    1. I think he was talking about Pro-choice corporations, not the US as a whole.

    2. "...I see this, and the country going bat crazy to stop the babies from being saved, and I can think of nothing so much as this being America's future:. "

      He seems to me quite clear that he expects large corporations to sustain the vision of America as a death ground for unborn children.
      It'd be nice if we could resolve this by seeking other vendors. Trouble is, ..I suspect most of us write these comments from Windows platforms, thus Microsoft. Others may be using Mac, so Apple. I further suspect most people who use e-books to keep their personal libraries manageable mostly use Kindle, so Amazon. ...and, once upon a time, I had an iPod or two, so Apple again.
      I'm surprised they didn't list Wal-Mart.
      It's unlikely these will change their tune except by losing at least 1/3 of their customer base, if not half. Most of us can't seek other vendors with any ease.
      ...And these are only the publicly known corporations. We have no idea what other large, yet private, organizations might be doing. Hy-Vee comes to mind.

    3. Don of the not BIden variety, John is correct. I fear we have slipped too far down the pagan pit. And we've been there fore more generations than we care to admit. While I rejoice in the decision, and for the temporary reprieve from one of the most egregiously evil laws in our nation's logn history, I see it as temporary. Already the forces of death are mobilizing, and they have plenty of support. As can be seen in the media's 100% pro-abortion coverage, the backing of Wall Street, and even a fair share of our religious institutions.

  2. Most of the time when companies do woke things it's because they care more about being woke than the money. But this time it might be about the money.

    Imagine that a year ago companies had said to their female employees "if you get pregnant, we will pay you a relatively small amount of money to abort the child." Everyone would take this as a ghoulish policy designed to not lose working hours from employees due to pregnancies. Now they are doing the exact same thing, but are able to dress it up as a woke crusade.

    1. I've always been of the impression that they do things because they think they'll get money for it. They might be wrong. There might be unintended consequences. But usually companies do things for the bottom line and that's about it. Clearly America's corporate interests no longer feel they need to pander to a nation of life, liberty and justice. For reasons likely too many for me to grasp, they see an anti-Western, anti-American, debauched and nihilist world one that will increase their profit margins. And that's why we're seeing what we're seeing.

      Plus it makes sense. It's far cheaper to pay for a woman to have an abortion than pay for weeks of paid maternity leave.

  3. Tucker Carlson was saying something similar, here:

    "What about the thought of having children makes these people so angry? Where does an attitude like that come from? Well, as it turns out, that attitude comes from the same place the Democratic Party now gets all of its attitudes, directly from corporate America. Corporate America wants you childless and this is a big change. A hundred years ago, big companies built housing for the families of their employees and then schools and libraries to educate them. It was the humane thing to do, but it also seemed to make good business sense at the time. If you wanted workers you could count on, you had to take care of them and their offspring, but over time, that arrangement got expensive. ...

    "If you're running the H.R. department at Citibank, that is the last thing you want. Children make your health care plan more expensive. Worse than that, they tend to compete with an employee's attention. Responding to after work emails seems less pressing to most new moms than putting their own kids to bed.

    "That's a huge problem for big companies, so they have every incentive to prevent their workers from having children. You can't say that out loud, of course. It would it be too obvious. 'Give us the best years of your life and in exchange we'll pay you what's effectively a subsistence wage in whatever overpriced urban hellscape we're based in and then take from you the one thing that might give your existence meaning and joy in middle age, which is having children. That's the deal we're offering.' That is the deal they're offering, but they can't say that. It would sound like what it is, which is exploitation, no better than what the cotton mills once did to 14-year-old girls."

    1. I think he's spot on. As I've said - and others have noticed - it's far cheaper to pay for an abortion than be saddled with the expenses and inconveniences that come with having a mother in the workplace. The funny part in our nation? All these interest and minority groups think the powers that be really care, and the real enemies are their coworkers, fellow students, friends and even family who might disagree with them over something they believe. Yep. Keep trusting in a power base that almost makes it clear it doesn't care.
