Gallup, N.M., Nov 6, 2019 / 16:01 pm
The Diocese of Gallup has chosen to stop using Zoom Video Communications for its internet meetings, citing the company's support of abortion rights.
Eric Yuan, the founder and CEO of Zoom, was among the 187 executives who signed a letter that appeared a full-page ad in the New York Times June 10 criticizing regulations on abortion passed by state legislatures.
"Due to the company's vocal support for abortion, the Diocese of Gallup has ceased all business with Zoom and will instead be seeking the use of an alternative platform for online meetings and presentations," read a letter sent to the diocese's schools and parishes.
The diocese's education office had been utilizing Zoom for several years.
