(LifeSite News) Amazon employees sent a letter to the company Tuesday making demands in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to overrule Roe v. Wade that include time off to cope with the decision and that Amazon should not do business in pro-life states.
The letter, posted to Twitter by Libs of TikTok, asks Amazon to severely rebuke the Supreme Court for its decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, which brought abortion decisions back to the states after almost 50 years of abortion on demand.

“We, the undersigned, come to you today to request immediate and decisive action against the threat to our basic human rights with the overturning of Roe v. Wade,” the letter begins. “As part of Amazon’s wide-reaching effort towards a more inclusive and diverse workforce, we believe that Amazon cannot let this recent decision go unanswered. We ask Amazon, the world’s best employer, to actively defend against this assault on our liberty.”
The letter also demands Amazon “cease operations in states that enact laws that threaten the lives and liberty of abortion seekers, either by denying health care in life threatening circumstances or by criminalizing abortion seekers and providers.”
