Following statements from the likes of Insomniac Games and Sucker Punch, Sony developers including Bend Studio and London Studio have posted similar support, saying, "Reproductive freedom and bodily autonomy are human rights".

The Last of Us developer Naughty Dog shared a lengthier message on Twitter, saying it "believes reproductive freedom and bodily autonomy are basic human rights and essential to the health and wellbeing of everyone.".

Away from Sony, other major publishers have made their own statements in support of reproductive rights.

A statement shared on Xbox's official Twitter feed read, "At Xbox, we remain committed to our employees to ensure equal access to healthcare.

"We believe the ability to make choices about one's body and lifestyle is a human right", said Bethesda in a short statement on Twitter, while Double Fine - one of the first studios to speak out following initial reports of the Supreme Court's plans last month - wrote, "Overturning Roe v Wade constitutes a direct assault on people's safety and rights.

Today and every day, we believe that reproductive rights are humans rights, women's rights are human rights, trans rights are human rights, and equal rights for all are essential to a world where everyone can be their authentic selves and thrive.".

EA - which came in for criticism last month after it reportedly declined employee requests to make a public statement in support of reproductive rights and trans rights - also shared a statement, albeit one that stopped short of directly referencing reproductive rights or bodily autonomy.

"We are committed to expanding our benefits for US employees and their eligible dependents - our aim is to provide the care, support and services for the health and well-being of our people." Apex Legends developer Respawn shared an identical statement on its own account.

Our game is a reflection of our unwavering belief that everyone has a right to choose how they want to live their life without judgment, including the right to bodily autonomy." It also provided a list of resources for those requiring support.

Devolver Digital shared a simple, direct, "Reproductive rights are human rights.", while Among Us developer Innersloth opted for a longer message.

"Innersloth supports reproductive choice and liberty," it wrote.

"The ending of the constitutional right to abortion is a gender, racial, economic, and human rights disaster for both present and future generations.

It shared links to a number of those organisations, including Abortion Funds, The Brigid Alliance, Trans Lifeline, In Our Own Voice, and Plan C.

Humble Bundle, as part of a lengthy statement, pledged to use its platform and community to support charities connected with reproductive rights and liberty in the coming weeks.

"Reproductive freedom and bodily autonomy are fundamental human rights, period.".

"We are also working on ways that our platform and community can support charities that are committed to standing up for reproductive choice and liberty.

"We will have more to share in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, we encourage the Humble community to donate directly to organisations dedicated to fighting for these rights, including Center for Reproductive Rights, Guttmacher Institute, NARAL Pro-Choice America Foundation, or Planned Parenthood, if possible".

ORIGINAL STORY 14/6/22: Bungie and a number of PlayStation studios, including Insoniac and Sucker Punch, have spoken out in support of reproductive rights following today's decision by the US Supreme Court to overturn key legislation granting individuals the constitutional right to choose an abortion - a move that gives US states the power to either severely restrict or ban the practice.

Bungie was one of the first studios to make a statement in May after the US Supreme Court's plans to overthrow Roe v Wade were leaked to the press, calling the move a "direct attack on human rights".

Adding to that sentiment in a new statement shared today, it said, "Standing up for reproductive choice and liberty is not a difficult decision to make, and Bungie remains dedicated to upholding these values.".

"We remain undeterred in our commitment to stand up for reproductive choice and liberty," the developer concluded.

Reproductive freedom and bodily autonomy are human rights." Dreams developer Media Molecule and Ghost of Tsushima studio Sucker Punch shared similar messages on their own Twitter accounts, saying "Reproductive freedom and bodily autonomy are human rights.".

Public support from these developers is particularly notable in that a Washington Post report last month claimed Sony was refusing to approve any statements its PlayStation studios might want to make on the topic of reproductive rights1

Concluding its latest statement, Bungie shared a list of organisations that support rights to healthcare, for those wishing to donate:.
