FULL TITLE: Woman Gets Uber Driver Fired For Refusing To Take Her To Get An Abortion. Now She's Looking To Sue Him.
A 20-year-old college student in upstate New York reported an Uber driver for refusing to take her to get an abortion. According to the womens account, which was reported on by Yahoo! Style (UK), the ride-sharing company canned the pro-lifer.
But now the woman is looking to take legal against the driver.
Im in college in upstate NY and I dont have a car on campus because its expensive, she wrote in a message posted to Reddit earlier this month.
Im 20 years old and I found out I was pregnant and subsequently decided I wanted an abortion because Im in no position to care for a child, the woman said.
She found a clinic about an hour from her university, because the nearby Planned Parenthood had a schedule that didnt work for her. Because I dont have a car, I rely on Uber and [L]yft to get me places, she said.
The student then recounted her interaction with the Uber driver, who attempted to dissuade the woman from choosing abortion before telling her he could not drive her to the clinic.
My appointment was at 11:30am so at 9:58am my Uber arrived and he immediately seemed uncomfortable. After about five minutes in the car, he asked, are we going to a planned parenthood? I said no (because we werent), but it set off alarm bells that he would even ask that, she recounted. The destination I put in was just the name of the doctor and the address of the clinic, there was nothing that would suggest it was an abortion clinic. After a few more minutes he asked, are we going to an abortion clinic?

Nothing comes even close to vindictiveness and evil like a nasty abortionist murderer.
Some of the geniuses told me here they were allowed to kick anyone out at any time.
If he wants to protest at clinics and volunteer at a place that is friendly to women in need who want to have children, that would be great.
This was an all show, no substance move. He could have tried to talk her out of it on the way.
All those who are going to boo this, why are you on FR now instead of in front of a clinic protesting?
My last Uber driver was a minister’s wife.
I’m sure she wouldn’t have taken her to an abortion either.
Also, 90 percent here will scream for the death penalty when a number of unwanted kids who are born go on to murder.
How about we HELP these kids once they’re born??
Instead of patting ourselves on the back at Sunday dinner for doing the “right thing”.
The RIGHT THING would be following through in helping them once they are brought into this earth and not stopping our concern at the point of birth
Next: a run for Congress.
Good luck squeezing blood from that turnip.
Can I ask a stupid question?
Are Uber drivers mostly native born Americans, ordinary citizens, students, others working for cash in their spare time?
I’ve noticed in many cities, cab drivers are almost exclusively people who were not born in this country. I wondered if Uber drivers come from a different group of people.
I also wonder how it is, that driving a cab evolved into something that “Americans won’t do”, to paraphrase people such as W who said immigrants do jobs Americans aren’t doing.
Why do people tell the help what they are doing?
Guy is there to drive the car, not be your friend. And when you say things that piss that guy off, of course he can pull over and tell you to get out. Duh
There are ways to deal with this! Always know where all the Crisis Pregnancy Centers are and take the women there “by mistake”. Then say later “oh my bad”
BTW a lot of these Pregnancy Centers? Are very close to Abortion Mills so the “My Bad” would hold water.
Ville. Vindictive. Baby Killier and future Rat member of Congress.
how did the driver know she was getting an abortion???
According to the article, the driver not only kicked her out of the car, but took her out of their way to a remote location not on the direct route to the destination, and told her that she wouldn’t be able to get another Uber from that spot.
Leftism is a satanic death cult.
Conscientious objectors are (were) allowed to skip military service, but objectors whose conscience won’t allow them to aid and abet abortions, can be sued?
I guess it all depends upon which issue the liberals wish to criminalize.
Here’s an idea for all those who object to the liberal ideology.... if you can’t support any of it, why live in a liberal state or liberal city? Reduce the population of those areas, and the power of those liberal chitholes get reduced.
He did. Reading is helpful. And yeah... for several months, I did join protests several years ago. I still support the effort... but you can't do it 24/7.
I applaud the uber driver not wanting to be accomplice to murder. God will bless this choice even in midst of stupid law suit or whatever the woman trys to do.
Yes but the driver offered to drive her home. Just not to the abortion clinic.
In the article, she tried calling her parents 3 times no answer so she called her boyfriend and he picks her up. He tells her to call clinic and tell them what happened and she will be late he then starts calling for a cab. Ok, so he drove to rescue her from the Uber guy but then instead of taking her to the clinic he gets her a cab? Unreal.
You may have a right to an abortion, but not sure what grounds you have for suing someone for refusing to take you there to get it.... But I am sure some left wing judge will invent something.
