Apple will have to position itself

On June 24, the US Supreme Court rendered an edifying verdict. After months of battle and discussion, protectors of the U.S. Constitution decided to overturn Roe v. Wade. The latter was the only guarantor of the right to abortion in the United States.

As soon as the historic ruling was handed down, dozens of conservative states banned abortion outright, disrupting the lives of millions of women across the country. Faced with such a decision, many personalities have stepped up to the plate.

A new letter for SVOD platforms

This week, no less than 400 television personalities, including Shonda Rhimes, Issa Rae and Amy Schumer, signed a letter sent to the biggest streaming platforms. This letter therefore arrived in the mailbox of Netflix, Amazon Prime, but Apple TV+.

According to Variety, which would have had access to the letters, they ask that the big companies in the world of streaming take their responsibility and ensure: “ protect our fundamental human rights and those of our colleagues. » Among other things, the group calls for security plans to be put in place within 10 days to make abortion possible for employees of these platforms working in areas where it is illegal.

While the mail arrived a few days ago, the Cupertino company was very quick to respond and assures that it “supports the rights of employees”, in particular that of making “your own choices”. Apple also recalled that the health benefits supported by the company have already included transport to another state if any care is not available in a region of the country.

Georgia in the spotlight

Today the question is burning for streaming platforms, many of which are based in Georgia, a state that has banned a large part of abortions. If the tax interests are very real in this part of the territory, which partly explains the presence of these companies, such a law to get them to leave.

If the companies don’t do it on their own, it’s the American population itself that could put pressure on Netflix and others to leave this area of ​​the country. – Official App
