A list of more than 200 CEOs surfaced Monday in opposition of anti-abortion bills passed around the country, including the heartbeat bill signed into law in Georgia.

The campaign website – DontBanEquity.com – says the letter represent employers who employ over 108,000 workers “and stand against policies that hinder people’s health, independence, and ability to fully succeed in the workplace.”

“Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health, independence and economic stability of our employees and customers. Simply put, it goes against our values and is bad for business,” the website reads.

Further, the ad, which also ran in the New York Times, says anti-abortion law “impairs our ability to build diverse and inclusive workforce pipelines, recruit top talent across the states, and protect the wellbeing of all the people who keep our businesses thriving day in and out.”

The companies, as of Monday even, span 17 states and include technology, fashion, banking, retail and energy.

The effort to secure business leaders to sign the The “Don’t Ban Equality” statement is led by national organizations working to protect and expand access to reproductive health care, including Planned Parenthood Federation of America, NARAL Pro-Choice America, The American Civil Liberties Union and Center for Reproductive Rights. These organizations will continue to work together to provide opportunities for businesses and business leaders to help protect reproductive healthcare in the critical months and years to come.

Georgia’s law has not yet faced any legal challenges as it does not take effect until January 1, 2020.
