Bungie tells critics it will ‘never’ avoid politics as it declares support for Roe v. Wade

In the wake of a leaked draft ruling revealing that the US Supreme Court intends to overturn Roe v. Wade, Destiny 2 studio Bungie has issued a statement saying that it “supports essential healthcare rights” and is “committed to safeguarding the freedom and privacy of its employees.” It also took the opportunity to roast a few followers on Twitter who demanded that the studio “stick to making videogames.”

The Roe v. Wade decision, issued in 1973, ruled that women in the US have a constitutionally-protected right to abortion, with some limitations based on trimester. The case was sparked by a Texas law that outlawed all access to abortion except in cases where the mother’s life was threatened; the court ruled that the law violated the Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment of the US Constitution.
