Elon Musk declines to address Texas abortion law directly after Gov. Greg Abbott’s comments
- Elon Musk declined to weigh in directly on Texas' abortion law after Gov. Greg Abbott said the Tesla CEO supported his state's "social policies."
- "In general, I believe government should rarely impose its will upon the people, and, when doing so, should aspire to maximize their cumulative happiness," Musk told CNBC in a tweet.
- "That said, I would prefer to stay out of politics," said Musk, whose companies and private foundation are both growing their operations in Texas.
- Abortion rights advocates and providers say the law, which the Supreme Court refused to block, effectively overturns precedent for abortion protections set under Roe v. Wade
