If this CEO was a woman who was praising laws that banned contraceptive methods for men only (vasectomy, etc.) then she would rightly be called batshit crazy and asked to step down I think. I don't think it's too much to ask from a CEO that they don't treat the opposite sex as second class citizens. Just because a significant portion of the US believes that women are indeed second class citizens doesn't mean that we have to just accept it and move on. Believe what you want, and feel free to share those beliefs all you want, but as many have said already, freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequences. This guy was not banned from Twitter, or jailed for expressing his opinion. He's still free to say whatever hateful garbage he wants.
A false analogy; you really can't compare killing someone's gametes (of which he has an unlimited amount) to killing 20-28 week old fetuses (20-28 weeks being the maximum allowed age of a fetus at the time of abortion in most US states). Of course, being against abortion from the moment of fertilization is an extreme view, and I don't know if this ex-CEO's support of the law is indicative of such a view, but abortions close to the outer edge of what the law allows are arguably not much different than taking a newborn baby and throwing him/her in the trash (well, maybe an abortion is a quicker death than hypothermia or dehydration, so in that regard there is some difference).
This law is at 6 weeks. Not 20. Not 28. 6.
At what week do you suppose most women know they're pregnant?
This also ignores the vigilante aspect, in which people are encouraged to report, and in which Uber drivers taking a woman to Planned Parenthood, which is normal for any young woman, can be liable if she gets an abortion.
So yes, he tweeted his support of all of the above.
