A business magazine is pressuring companies to take a “survey” about their abortion stance and vows to “disclose” those who do not comply.
Fast Company began reaching out to companies back in March about its project, several weeks before the Supreme Court major opinion draft signaling the overturning of Roe v. Wade was leaked, but the latest developments in the abortion debate renewed the magazine’s efforts to get major corporations on the record.

In an email to one of the companies seen by TmZ Blog, Fast Company says it is working on an “editorial package” about “how corporate silence on abortion impacts employees” and “what responsibility of businesses should be when it comes to abortion care and access.”
The survey would ask questions about the company’s positions and policies about “abortion care.”
Fast Company told the companies it would share some of the survey’s results, but warned, “we do plan to disclose whether or not companies engaged with the survey.”
Tech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy first put a spotlight on Fast Company’s survey to corporations on Saturday, accusing the magazine of “twisting their arms to take public stances on abortion”
“More corporate advocacy, thinly veiled as ‘journalism,’” Ramaswamy tweeted.

Critics blasted Fast Company in reaction to Ramaswamy’s tweet, accusing the magazine of “extortion.”
Fast Company did not immediately respond to TmZ Blog’ request for comment.
The Washington Post was similarly accused of activism this week after it published a report focusing on video game companies and whether they are taking a stand in the abortion debate.
The report alleged the industry has been “mostly silent,” something the Post called “especially conspicuous” since the biggest names in video games were outspoken in support of Black Lives Matter following the 2020 murder of George Floyd.
