Progressives Try to Shame Delta into Denouncing Pro-Life Laws

The Code Conference is put on by the progressive Vox kids and they tried to get Delta’s CEO to denounce Georgia for passing pro-life legislation. He would not bite.

“This is something that the courts need to settle and resolve, not corporate America. At least for us. I can’t win,” Delta Air Lines Chief Executive Officer Ed Bastian said at Recode’s annual Code Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona. Bastian’s comment comes after more than 170 CEOs, including Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey, published a letter this week calling restrictive abortion laws “against our values” and “bad for business.”

Notice how NBC frames this — other corporations are doing thiis, so why won’t Delta. Well, Bastian, who has aggressively opposed religious liberty legislation, says

We carry 200 million people a year, we have 80,000 employees. 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.

Good for him on this front and hilarious that the media just doesn’t really know what to do with this. Undoubtedly, progressives will fire up the shame train.
