Match Group CEO Shar Dubey and Bumble announced a relief fund to support people seeking abortions in the state impacted by the legislation. Texas-based employees and dependents have been forced to follow the new abortion law with immediate effect from this week. This law states that women cannot undergo an abortion procedure after six weeks of pregnancy. The law has created a lot of confusion and disappointment amongst the people as it is very difficult for most women to realize they are pregnant before six weeks of pregnancy.
Reacting to the introduction of this law signed in May by Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, Bumble tweeted “Bumble is women-founded and women-led, and from day one we’ve stood up for the most vulnerable. We’ll keep fighting against regressive laws like #SB8. Based on a confirmation given to CNBC, Match Group CEO Shar Dubey has shown a personal interest in this matter and also announced a relief fund through a memo to Texas-based workers and dependents. According to Dubey’s memo reported by Bloomberg, she said: The company generally does not take political stands unless it is relevant to our business. But in this instance, I personally, as a woman in Texas, could not keep silent.
Shar Dubey and Bumble are against this highly punitive and unfair law and feel pity that this law doesn’t even make an exception for victims of rape or incest.
