"Boycott opponents, some of them Democrats, said it made no sense to economically punish Alabama, already one of the poorest U.S. states. Others said no amount of economic pain would sway them from their fight to defend unborn children's rights." 

 

Is that true, cons? NO amount of pain will deter you from you ethical stand on curtailing women's rights?

Well, we'll just see about that, won't we?

May 17 (Reuters) - Companies operating in Alabama and Georgia, ranging from Toyota to Netflix, as well as an Alabama music festival faced boycott threats on Friday after the states passed near-total bans on abortion.

Responding to the United States' most restrictive laws on the procedure, activists have taken aim at media companies that use Georgia as a production hub and Alabama-based automakers such as Hyundai and Mercedes-Benz. 

A day after Maryland and Colorado officials told staff not to travel to Alabama to protest its abortion law passed Tuesday, people took to Twitter to say they were canceling convention visits and beach vacations in the state.

Hangout Fest, a May 16-19 music festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama was targeted, with activists urging radio station SiriusXM to stop advertising the event and artists such as Cardi B, Travis Scott, Khalid and The Lumineers to boycott it.

Alabama earned $14.3 billion from nearly 27 million visitors in 2017, according to state data.

Activists were inspired by the partial success of boycotts that targeted Indiana over its 2015 religious freedom law that ostensibly justified bigotry. 

It remained to be seen whether large corporations would take a public stand on the polarizing issue of abortion.

It will make absolutely no difference. And I doubt seriously if they'll go through with it because they're cutting off their nose to spite their face. People in Alabama and other parts of the country can boycott their cars and Alabama can certainly solicit people to come to their state for festivals and events from sympathetic groups. It's All About the Benjamins!

It is not WOMAN'S RIGHTS.

 

It is forcing the religious beliefs of some on the whole society.

Some religions would make ANY TYPE OF BIRTH CONTROL AGAINST THE LAW.

Some, a few, many, or most people don't believe that abortion is murder.

Most can't agree on when a fetus becomes a human being.

So, these laws are simply THE RELIGIOUS BELIEFS OF SOME PEOPLE,

BEING FORCED ON ALL PEOPLE.

 

Doesn't the Constitution say something about making laws with respect to religion?

Freedom of religion implies freedom from religion.

Let me be your interpretation but show me anywhere in the constitution in The Federalist Papers all the writings of any of the founding fathers to support that interpretation.

Like I said, and the Founding Fathers knew, it is implied in the very sentence. That is why you can't teach Islam in public schools, or Christianity, or Hindu, etc.  It is not a majority rules decision. It is enshrined in the Bill of Rights.

The founding fathers didn't imply anything... That's why they wrote The Federalist Papers. Once again if you can't find it in the Constitution if you can't find it in any of the writings of the founding fathers it is your interpretation not theirs.

In the end, money talks. Loss of tax revenues, lower economic metrics, loss of population will resonate far longer than political rhetoric.
