PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan Upsets Staff With Abortion Comments

PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan has reportedly upset PlayStation staff when he addressed the Roe vs. Wade court case in an internal email. Ryan commented on the ongoing court case regarding abortion rights where he asked staff to “respect differences of opinion” on the topic

In the internal mail – seen by Bloomberg – Ryan addresses the reported leak of the Roe vs. Wade turnover intended by the US Supreme Court which would effectively re-criminalise abortion in the United States.

Ryan supposedly goes on to say that PlayStation is “multi-faceted and diverse, holding many different points of view”. Furthermore, he stated that “we owe it to each other and to PlayStation’s millions of users to respect differences of opinions among everyone in our internal and external communities”. Ryan also stated that “Respect does not equal agreement. But it is fundamental to who we are as a company and as a valued global brand”.

An internal conversation also reportedly seen by Bloomberg highlighted that internal employees are not happy about Ryan’s tone in the communication. Some employees felt as though their rights were “disrespected or trivialised” by the statement and tone of the email.

The right to have an abortion was granted and made legal in 1973 in the case referred to as Roe vs. Wade, and a leaked document now states that the US Supreme Court intends to overturn the historic ruling. If the Supreme Court does overrule the decision this would make abortion illegal again, removing a fundamental right for women to do what they want with their bodies.
