Tripwire CEO Steps Down Amid Controversy

The controversy over a tweet by John Gibson supporting the anti-abortion law that recently took effect in Texas has quickly boiled over. Yesterday it was reported that developers Shipwright Studios cut ties with the publisher and developer Torn Banner Studios distanced itself from Gibson's remarks. Now Tripwire itself is also created its own distance, announcing that Gibson has "stepped down" (presumably after some coaxing), and has been replaced by interim CEO Alan Wilson. Tripwire says Gibson's remarks do not reflect the opinions of the company:
The comments given by John Gibson are of his own opinion, and do not reflect those of Tripwire Interactive as a company. His comments disregarded the values of our whole team, our partners and much of our broader community. Our leadership team at Tripwire are deeply sorry and are unified in our commitment to take swift action and to foster a more positive environment.

Effective immediately, John Gibson has stepped down as CEO of Tripwire Interactive. Co-founding member and current Vice President, Alan Wilson, will take over as interim CEO. Alan has been with the company since its formation in 2005 and is an active lead in both the studio’s business and developmental affairs. Alan will work with the rest of the Tripwire leadership team to take steps with employees and partners to address their concerns including executing a company-wide town hall meeting and promoting open dialogue with Tripwire leadership and all employees. His understanding of both the company’s culture and the creative vision of our games will carry the team through this transition, with full support from the other Tripwire leaders.

It would be "funny" if the Uber driver reported and sued the woman he brought to the clinic, then the abortion protestor staking out the clinic did the same to the Uber driver.
There was an article yesterday saying the new unconstitutional law would damage the Texas economy because Host’s who are forced to give birth would be taken out of the workforce. But I can see how your new cottage economy will over correct for any loss due to host’s leaving the workforce to raise their unwanted children. so much winning

You know, I'd normally agree with most of this, but based upon just Texas' foster care stats it is rather apparent that they aren't really caring about economy impacts...hell, they barely support said care financially as-is. What it does appear to be happening is the self-perpetuating cycle of creating impoverished sub-classes of populations to cover anything that their immigrant population doesn't support.

George Carlin was pretty prescient with his statements in regards to "Pro-lifers" and their disdain for anything post 9 months, pre-18 years. I mean, he pretty much predicted everything that has taken place over the last several months in regards to this whole topic...

They will do anything for the unborn. But once you’re born, you’re on your own. Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that, they don’t want to know about you. They don’t want to hear from you. No nothing. No neonatal care, no day care, no head start, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing. If you’re preborn, you’re fine; if you’re preschool, you’re fucked.

I mean, he also did point out that Conservatives don't care about children post 9 months until they reach military age, which I'm pretty sure is also very true.
Blame me. I only read the headline: Why Texas's strict abortion law is terrible for the economy
It has bunches of stats, suffice to say not being able to terminate an unwanted pregnancy leads to nothing good.
