A gaming and entertainment behemoth just caved to abortion advocates and is reportedly giving big bucks to promote baby-killing after a liberal newspaper complained.
The Washington Post whined on May 11 that the “video game industry stay[ed] mostly silent” on the abortion issue following the leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion appearing to reverse Roe v. Wade (1973). Pressure built, and just one day later, Bloomberg News blasted Sony PlayStation for comments PlayStation President Jim Ryan made reportedly urging his employees in a leaked email to “respect differences of opinion” on abortion. The Bloomberg News story was dramatically headlined “Sony PlayStation Staff Fume Over CEO’s Abortion Comments.”
Fast-forward to just five days later on May 16, and The Post released a story headlined: “After Roe v. Wade cat email gaffe, Sony and Insomniac plan donations.” Specifically, Sony subsidiary Insomniac Games, announced “plans to donate $50,000 to the Women’s Reproductive Rights Assistance Project (WRRAP),” according to the report. Sony reportedly promised to match Insomniac’s initial $50,000 pledge, which boosts that sum to a whopping $100,000 donation for pro-abortion causes.
It seems that the formula for making executives at Sony sweat and give in to abortion pressure is relatively simple: Just whip up enough media pressure.
WRRAP is a leftist pro-abortion organization that describes itself as “the largest national, independent, nonprofit abortion fund.” WRRAP did not respond to a request for comment from MRC Business at the time of publication.
But for an organization that includes the word “Women” in the name, WRRAP does not seem to understand what a “woman” actually is. On the “About” page of its website, the pro-abortion group claims that it “assists women* and girls of all ethnicities, sexual orientations, gender identities, and cultural backgrounds” who can’t afford an abortion. WRRAP clarified that its asterisked definition of “women” covers “transgender, genderqueer and non-binary people who are woman-identified.” [Emphasis added].
So, biological men can have an abortion too?
The Merriam-Webster dictionary, on the other hand, defines “woman” in just four words: “an adult female person.”
Maybe part of Sony’s and Insomniac’s $100,000 baby-killing donation can go toward helping WRRAP buy a decent dictionary.
Sony also plans to help employees travel for abortions, according to The Post. Such a policy would add Sony to a growing list of influential companies, including Amazon, which quietly announced it would support women who travel to get abortions.
Both Sony and Insomniac seem eager to stay out of the spotlight concerning the abortion wars raging across America: Neither Sony nor Insomniac have posted about their abortion policy on Twitter or Facebook accounts between May 2 — the day Politico published its story on the leaked Roe decision — and May 17.
Neither company returned MRC Business’s requests for comment before publication.
