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is also created its own distance, announcing that Gibson has "stepped down" (presumably after some coaxing), and has been replaced by interim CEO Alan Wilson.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.

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.
That is very true, but as witnessed, I really don't think they care about that all too much.

That being said Texas has what they call CHIP, or Children's Health Insurance Program (low-income, but still too high to be covered by Medicaid), but alas they shot down adding contraceptive coverage to it despite having a massive increase in teenage pregnancies, they were like 9th in the US if I remember correctly.

An article explaining this can be found here. I mean, they have made it so you have to play insurance roulette just to get anything done there.

There's literally hundreds of articles all explaining that Texas goes well out of its way to make it difficult for people to control unplanned pregnancies...well, outside of the touted abstinence methods, which anyone with half a brain cell knows isn't a plausible methodology.
