"Major Companies, Including Disney and Walmart, keep largely silent as leaked Supreme Court abortion draft sparks outrage"

You don't say.

Companies were reticent to weigh in on a leaked draft of a Supreme Court decision that would strike down abortion rights.

Dozens of companies, including Walmart, American Airlines and Disney, have yet to issue statements or respond to CNBC requests for comment.

The Business Roundtable, a trade group that's made up of top CEOs, said it "does not have a position on this issue." The U.S. Chamber of Commerce declined to comment.

Oh, the US Chamber of Commerce is suddenly quiet? What a nice change of pace.

Dozens of companies, including Walmart, American Airlines and Disney, have yet to issue statements or respond to CNBC requests for comment. The Business Roundtable, a trade group that's made up of top CEOs, said in a statement that it "does not have a position on this issue." Microsoft, JPMorgan and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce all declined to comment.

I guess they're #DoneTalking.

Some companies, however, did open their big corporate lie-holes, including Yelp, OK Cupid, and FaceBook-- well, their feminist activist tag-along-er Sheryl Sandberg whined about it on her personal page.

Also: Uber and Lyft, and Amazon and Apple.

Earlier measures from Amazon and Apple, made in the wake of several Republican-backed state laws that have sought to restrict abortion access, hint at how corporations may respond to a broader crackdown on abortion rights. (Amazon's policy only applies to U.S. employees who are enrolled in company health plans, a company spokesperson told Vice's Motherboard.)

Both companies have added travel reimbursement for employees who are forced to seek abortions or other medical care out of state, as more governments across the nation's Sunbelt pass laws that shutter abortion clinics or limit access in other ways.

Uber and Lyft each said they would cover legal fees for drivers who are sued under an anticipated abortion law in Oklahoma and one recently passed in Texas that bans most abortions after about six weeks of pregnancy. Under both bills, people aiding abortions, including those transporting them to clinics, can be fined up to $10,000.

CVS said Tuesday it has similarly "made out-of-state care accessible and affordable for employees in states that have instituted more restrictive laws," but declined to elaborate. The company has approximately 300,000 employees.

The article quotes a leftist named Sonnenfeld whose job it is to pressure corporations into taking leftwing positions. They just keep quoting him about how cowardly corporate silence is, and how they all should speak up in favor of leftist policies.

No one is quoted arguing the contrary position.
