In the wake of the Dobbs decision from the Supreme Court of the United States, which overturned Roe v. Wade and returned the abortion issue to the individual states, hundreds of Amazon employees have begun to organize in protest — and they want their employer to join them.
In an open letter , which has since been leaked to the public, these employees make several demands on Amazon executives that they believe will restore “the basic human right” of unrestricted abortion access.
Though some of the demands are predictable — denounce the decision publicly, organize company-sponsored protests, fund organizations “working to expand abortion access” — others seem less concerned with the cause itself and more interested in diminishing executive power in favor of organized labor.
For example, the letter asks the company to grant all employees “the space and time to grieve, express their frustrations, and protest against this assault on our rights,” ostensibly on the company’s dime.
It also asks Amazon to “[e]xpand remote work options to allow employees the option to relocate to states” which will permit continued abortion access and to “[c]ease operations in states that enact” abortion restrictions. Since Amazon has already opened dozens of major warehouses in red states and since its business model relies on the convenience of fast home delivery, this demand would greatly impact company revenue, as well as the breadth of the company’s political and economic influence.
The letter also calls for Amazon to conduct a massive audit to make sure that none of its hundreds of billions of dollars in revenue go towards supporting pro-life causes and to censor its inventory so that customers have access only to pro-abortion materials and sellers.
By making such stiff demands, the letter co-signers may have sensed an opportunity to gain greater leverage with Amazon executives. Almost since the […]

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
