A growing number of WOKE corporations are making it known publically and through intra-company communications that they will pay to re-reimburse women employees in conservative states, who want to cross state lines to have their babies aborted in liberal states without restrictions.
This way employees who live in conservative states will still be able to obtain abortions should Roe v. Wade be overturned.
Recent SCOTUS rulings have indicated that the court was moving toward allowing increased restrictions on abortion. As a result conservative-leaning states started pushing through their anti-abortion legislative agendas.
Following Politico’s article published on Monday, which included a leaked Supreme Court decision indicating that a majority of the Justices voted in February to overturn Roe v. Wade, more and more companies have been actively considering implementing such a practice, with Amazon joining the fold this week.
CNN reported on Wednesday.
“Amazon became the latest corporation to cover employees’ travel costs to seek abortion care. The company told staff it would pay up to $4,000 in travel expenses annually for medical treatments including abortions, according to a message seen by Reuters. An Amazon spokesperson confirmed the nature of the Reuters report to CNN Business.”
Amazon joined Citigroup, Yelp, Uber, Lyft, Bumble, Match Group, and Salesforce to implement such a policy.
On Tuesday, Levi Strauss & Co. reminded its employees that its current benefits program will grant reimbursements “for healthcare-related travel expenses for services not available in their home state, including those related to reproductive health care and abortion.”
The company said:
“Access to reproductive health care, including abortion, has been a critical factor to the workplace gains and contributions women have made over the past 50 years. Further restricting or criminalizing access will jeopardize that progress and disproportionately affect women of color, putting their well-being at risk and impeding diverse hiring pipelines.”
“Women in some states would have fewer rights than women in others, and our country would be consigned to a more unjust and inequitable future. What’s more, companies would need different health policies for different locations – including coverage for time off and travel across state lines – to ensure employees can access reproductive health care.”
Match Group CEO Shar Dubey said in a statement that she “personally, as a woman in Texas, could not keep silent” when the company announced its abortion tourism policy this past September in response to the Texas law that banned abortion in most cases.
In what might surprise these corporations and others in the pro-death crowd, a plurality of likely voters supports overturning Roe v. Wade, according to a Rasmussen Reports survey released on Wednesday.
The survey‘s respondents were asked the following: “According to a leaked draft of a majority opinion, the U.S. Supreme Court is prepared to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion in the United States. Would you approve or disapprove of a Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade?”
Overall, a plurality, 48 percent, said they would approve of overturning Roe, and of those, 32 percent “strongly” approve. In contrast, 45 percent disapprove, and of those, 35 percent do so “strongly.”
For my family and I, we plan to stop doing business with any of the corporations included on the list.
We are awake to who the woke corporations are and thus will no longer give them our money moving forward.
