Many woke corporations have stepped forward to cover medical and travel expenses for their employees seeking out-of-the-state abortions.
Despite having the Supreme Court’s historic verdict in Roe v. Wade case, this suggests the left-leaning inclination of top corporations, which has previously landed them in trouble.
Woke Corporations are On the Roll Again
Some of the companies which have extended their support to finance abortions of their employees include Alaska airlines, Amalgamated bank, Amazon, Tesla, Airbnb, Apple, Bloomberg, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Gucci, HP, GoDaddy, Microsoft, Uber, Disney, and Starbucks.
According to the Senior Vice President of Alaska airlines, Andy Schneider, his company will provide “reimbursing travel” for “certain medical procedures” if they are not provided in the home state of the employee.
Schneider also noted that the Supreme Court verdict would not change the company’s policy.
Similarly, the CEO of Dick’s Sporting Goods, Lauren Hobart, asserted that all of her teammates would get equal medical benefits irrespective of the state in which they live.
Dick’s Sporting Goods is planning to give up to $4,000 of travel expenses to those employees who do not have legal access to abortion in their states.
Hobart added that this abortion allowance would be extended to spouses of the employees or any dependent who can also move out of the state with one supporting person.
A survey has found that most voters believe corporations should not advocate for or against abortion rights “on behalf of their workers.”

Furthermore, America’s largest bank, JP Morgan Chase & Co., has already issued a staff memo earlier this month, mentioning that the bank will finance the medical procedures, including “legal abortions”, which are not provided in the home state of employees.
Last month, Starbucks acting executive Vice President Sara Kelly also established that the company would reimburse travel expenses for abortion and gender-affirming procedure if the medical centres are present beyond 100 miles of the employees residence.
Microsoft also jumped the bandwagon, noting that it will extend its support for the critical health facilities, including gender-affirming and abortion, for its employees regardless of their state.
Likewise, Airbnb also told Fox News that it would ensure that its employees “have the resources” to make choices about their reproductive health.
In addition to that, Apple’s spokesperson said that the company always stood to cover the out-of-state medical expenses of its workers, and the same will be the case with abortion.
Trouble Awaits for Liberal Companies
But these left-leaning policies of corporate giants can once again push them into troubled waters. Previously Florida’s conservative governor has sanctioned Disney for taking sides on gender-related legislation.
You shouldn’t have to share with your employer that you want an abortion.
Corporations should not have a say.

Various studies have already established that companies, nowadays, are hijacked by progressive employees who lobby to force their ideology on businesses. This urges the companies to bow down against the highly emotional workforce.
Meanwhile, some liberal corporations are also trying to monopolize the smartphone health apps market in the wake of the Supreme Court decision.
They are propagating conspiracies that the government can use the data of the already existing apps to track the menstrual cycles of women in order to know who performed an illegal abortion.
This way people are likely to uninstall the existing apps, paving the way for new businesses.
