NY Times Trolls ‘Punitive’ Pro-Life States on Front Page: ‘Risk Losing Their Economic Edge’

On the front page of Tuesday’s New York Times, national political reporter Alexander Burns warned that newly triggered abortion restrictions (i.e., “the rollback of women’s rights”) threatened to push young talent out of conservative red states, in the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s overturn of Roe v. Wade as those smart, talented pro-choicers head for abortion-welcoming climates: “States With Abortion Bans Risk Losing Their Economic Edge.”  

Meanwhile, the paper overlooks the fact that people are fleeing to states such as Florida because of the COVID regulations on California.

As a group, conservative states passed There are severe restrictions on abortionLast year, Governor. J.B. Pritzker from Illinois wrote letters to a select few executives of companies with close ties in Texas.

Mr. Pritzker, a Democrat, urged executives to rethink basing their companies in “a state that strips its residents of their dignity.”He wrote that most workers did not wish to be subjected to a strict ban on abortion.

Oddly, European nations have suffered from such “severe” and “rigid” restrictions for years, without much notice from the TimesOr any competition within the EU to ease abortion regulations to attract young talent. Unborn children are not considered worthy of respect by liberals.

His overture was not met with an immediate reply. Companies thriving in Texas’ freewheeling business environment were not about to flee because of legally contested abortion regulations that were not certain to be enforced.

Ten months later the political, legal, and social landscape has changed fundamentally. A Supreme Court ruling that ended the right of abortion has now threatened to change the economic landscape between liberal and conservative states.

It’s far too early to document that “threat,” but Burns was eagerly expecting the worst.

Burns described the pro-life position as hostile.

Companies that are based in economically strong conservative states such as Texas, Tennessee, and Georgia can be anchored., the rollback of women’s rights is no longer a hypothetical scenario but an immediate challenge….

In states where it is more complicated to reach an agreement, this may be even harder. Punitive restrictions placed on abortionYou can either ban the entire procedure or limit it to a minimum level that eliminates the possibility of it happening.

For reinforcement, he called in Biden’s secretary of commerce:

Big companies are fighting a “war for talent,” [Gina]Raimondo stated that Raimondo was particularly concerned about female talent, as women now make up the majority of college-educated students. Former governor of Rhode Island Ms. Raimondo said that it would be difficult for companies to hire skilled workers in the states. where women’s rights and medical services were sharply curtailed.

Burns found some unrelated “data” that allegedly backed up that view.

There is data to back up that view: A survey published this month by the Pew Research Center found that more than 3 in 5 people with college and postgraduate degrees disapproved of the Supreme Court’s decision, along with nearly 70 percent of people under 30. The survey found that sixty-two per cent of women opposed the decision.

Even Burns admitted the recent culture wars haven’t hurt red state economies. “But even in the midst of all this controversy, some big conservative-leaning States like Texas and Florida have defied expectations that anti-gay laws or laissez-faire guns laws would discourage new investment.
