PlayStation president faces backlash after refusing to take a stance on abortion rights

Earlier this month, a leaked draft from the US Supreme Court revealed that it intended to overturn Roe v Wade, a 1973 ruling that legalized a woman’s right to abortion. It is a move that has sparked overwhelming backlash, and a tremendous moment of fence-sitting from one Sony executive.

In an internal email sent this Thursday acquired by Bloomberg, PlayStation president Jim Ryan urged employees to “respect differences of opinion” on abortion rights. He then, reportedly, proceeded to spend the next five paragraphs talking about his cat’s birthday.
