Salesforce CEO Threatens to Pull Company From Indiana Over Abortion Restrictions, But Will Keep Doing Business in China

A week after a new abortion ban went into effect in Indiana on September 15, Salesforce Co-CEO Marc Benioff threatened to pull his company out of any states that restrict abortions. ​​

“The number one thing is, we must have our employees’ back,” Benioff said, “We are dealing with a whole series of crazy presidents, crazy governors and crazy mayors all over the world in every country, every city and every state. The number one thing I can do is let my employees know I’m here for them and I will 100 percent support them.”

In a Thursday interview with CNN, anchor Poppy Harlow asked Benioff about abortion restrictions and bans after the largest tech employer in Indiana announced plans to relocate workers who may want abortions.

Benioff replied that he’s debating on pulling the business, an enterprise cloud computing company, out of cities and states with “crazy” politicians that don’t support “equality and dignity.”
