Elon Musk Sues Pro-Life Activists for Using Twitter to Defend Their Rights

Elon Musk triggers liberals, sends them into wartime footing over free speech

Last month, Elon Musk, the head of the SpaceX launch company and a frequent critic of the left, sent an email to his nearly 700,000 followers to warn them that “our society has grown far too intolerant.”

“Too many Americans have become far too intolerant of opposing ideas. And that’s a problem. We are better than that,” Musk wrote.

“You’re free to believe whatever you want, but we are not responsible for what you say, and that freedom requires you to make your own decisions,” he continued. “If something doesn’t make sense to you, you shouldn’t be offended. Nobody should be forced to change what they believe. It is the right of the person who believes differently to have that belief.”

Now, Musk is being sued by a pair of pro-life activists in Florida who sued him. They claim that when they shared a link to an anti-abortion YouTube video with their friends who were visiting Musk’s home, he fired them (and their lawyers) after they showed him the email.

The video that was shared was from the anti-abortion group Live Action, which has been accused of false reporting, spreading anti-science propaganda and encouraging violence.

In the email, Musk urged his fans to “respect” his beliefs, but stressed that “the vast majority of people disagree with you, and they will never change your mind.”

“My goal is to help you be more confident in your own convictions regardless of any ‘facts’ you may have,” he added.

The two plaintiffs, a mother of a pre-born child and her anti-abortion partner, are now suing Musk, the former chief executive of the ride-hailing company Uber, and four executives from the company for not protecting them from the allegedly hateful comments they received on Twitter. These comments, the plaintiffs argue, included death threats and physical threats.
