Bungie Breaks Its Silence On Leaked Supreme Court Draft
On May 2, Politico published a leaked draft of a Supreme Court opinion on Roe v. Wade. The next day, the Court confirmed that the opinion was, in fact, real, leaving American citizens to debate the potential decision to overturn Roe v. Wade in its wake.
Bungie’s voice definitely has sway in the gaming industry, and in a blog post, they stated that they believe everyone deserves freedom, including the choice to procure a legal abortion. Bungie stated that the drafted opinion "represents a blow to freedom in America and is a direct attack on human rights. [...] should it become final, [it] will have far-reaching consequences that will be felt for generations across socio-economic lines."
Bungie stated there's a disconnect between those who create the laws and those who experience hardship because of them, and that the impact of overturning Roe v. Wade could negatively affect a variety of people. They may have set an example for other developers by stating that they support their workers' reproductive freedom.
