PlayStation president faces backlash after refusing to take stance on abortion rights

Earlier this month, a leaked draft by the U.S. Supreme Court showed it intended to overturn Roe v Wade, a 1973 ruling that legalized women’s abortion rights. The move sparked a backlash and a massive pushback from a Sony executive.

In an internal email sent this Thursday, the Bloomberg, PlayStation President Jim Ryan urged employees to “respect differences of opinion on abortion rights.” He then reportedly spent the next five periods talking about his cat’s birthday.
