In accordance with a tweet posted yesterday by John Gibson, president of Tripwire Interactive, the study behind it Maneater i Killing Floor—He is “proud” that the U.S. Supreme Court has allowed a new Texas abortion law to be upheld earlier this week.
The controversial law bans abortion after six weeks and goes so far as to allow private citizens to sue abortion providers or anyone suspected of helping a woman end her pregnancy. This essentially creates a reward system aimed at people seeking abortion and applied by random Texas residents.
The September 4 tweet from Tripwire President John Gibson, through his personal Twitter account, explained that he was “proud” of the Supreme Court’s recent decision to refrain from blocking the Texas Senate Bill 8. The bill, which became law on Wednesday, Sept. 1 at midnight, bans abortions in Lone Star State after six weeks.
However, state police and elected officials will not be held responsible. However, this duty will fall on private citizens, who now have the power to file lawsuits against any person or group they believe facilitates someone’s abortion. It could even include people who simply drive a patient to a clinic, help them get in by pushing a wheelchair, or holding hands for comfort. Now any Texas citizen can sue them for $ 10,000.
Texas has effectively created a surveillance system operated by private citizens, the sole purpose of which is to prevent women from safely accessing abortions. Although abortions will continue to be legal for the first six weeks, most women still don’t realize they are pregnant. How Jezebel notes“Although Texas patients are still guaranteed the right to abortion Roe against Wade, after Tuesday, at best it will be theoretical “.
Clearly, this is a malignant and misogynistic law that will hurt thousands of women and other people with wombs who do not have the resources to travel outside of Texas to access safe abortions. Dthe women will wait face the unimaginable choice of trying to access potentially dangerous and unsafe procedures, away from prying eyes or carrying an unwanted device the pregnancy carried out against her will. It’s a an unthinkably horrible law legalized only through the Supreme Court growing abuse of the so-called shadow record to rule on extremely consistent cases.
Still, Tripwire Interactive president John Gibson is happy with it all. In his tweet, he also described himself as a “pro-life game developer “. He considered it very important to share it with the world. Gibson also mentions that he doesn’t” become a politician “very often. He clearly decided to make an exception to share a little emotion for this law designed to harm to women, stripping them of basic human rights.
Kotaku has contacted Tripwire Interactive about Gibson’s tweet supporting the controversial anti-abortion law.
Reactions to the tweet came quickly as they spread through social media, with numerous video game developers, writers, designers and fans sinking into Gibson’s disturbing tweet. Many also expressed disappointment that Gibson’s statement will no doubt lead to increased tension for the people who work under him on Tripwire and who now have to deal with that shit. Also, it may not be okay to know that your boss is okay with Texas women who lose the right to control their own bodies. Some people have sworn to stop playing existing and future Tripwire games, to the point block the editor from your Steam accounts.
