Disney Could See More Trouble with Florida's DeSantis

Now that the Supreme Court has opened the doors for states to individually repeal abortion laws, many businesses are feeling tremendous pressure to speak out and express their opposition. Women's rights activists have repeatedly said that the repeal of Roe v. Wade will majorly set back health and reproductive rights and, particularly in liberal states, the unpopularity of the decision is pushing many to see where the companies they give money to stand. As the Walt Disney Corporation discovered over the last six months, silence can be seen as a lack of support and lead to boycotts and protests -- when Florida passed what critics called the "Don't Say Gay" act to limit sexual education in schools, Disney's hesitancy to vocally condemn it led to weeks of employee walkouts and protests.
