The Texas “bounty hunter” law, designed by evil and corrupt Texas politicians, will never stand as already the backlash has been furious and powerful — and will only gain in strength. And thanks must be given to certain companies who are trying to help by standing up and speaking truth to power.

Lyft has announced they will cover legal costs of their drivers if any of them are sued for helping women by giving them a lift to healthcare clinics. Quicker than one could say, “this law sucks” Uber jumped in and announced they would be doing the same.

“This law is incompatible with people’s basic rights to privacy, our community guidelines, the spirit of rideshare, and our values as a company,” said Lyft.

Uber has announced they plan to do the same. “Drivers shouldn’t be put at risk for getting people where they want to go,” said Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi.

This is but the beginning, friends. As Palmer Report has stated, the national outcry will be huge and has already started. I do not feel this evil law will hold up. It is simply to savage a law and is pathetically ridiculous.

   

And in standing up for the rights of women everywhere, these companies are doing what the Supreme Court could not or would not do. They are showing courage. It’s nice to see, and we thank these companies greatly.
