After the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade on Friday, big companies have stood up for their employees.

Big Companies Taking Things Into Their Own Hands

For the last 21 years, Apple has expanded by 15000%, making it a market leader. The giant is now taking a stance against the abortion ban.

"For more than a decade, Apple's comprehensive benefits have allowed our employees to travel out-of-state for medical care if it is unavailable in their home state, " a company spokesperson announced.

Apple will cover the travel expenses of the employees, that need an abortion.

Another company that made a move against the Supreme Court’s decision is Disney. The giant provides travel benefits to all eligible to access medical treatment that is unavailable in their country.

In addition, Google has announced that their workers can apply for relocation -  no justification needed. The company is to cover out-of-state medical procedures and dependents for all that require it.

Meta is also looking into possible solutions. "We are in the process of assessing how best to do so given the legal complexities involved, said a spokesperson. 

Mozilla has taken measures, too: "Effective July 1, 2022, our US medical plans will include a travel benefit for employees and their covered dependents who do not have this service available to them within a 75-mile radius of their home," reads the post. "All our health care plans currently offer reproductive health benefits that include abortion, and we have no plans to change this."

The list of companies that have taken steps to provide their employees with the necessary medical care also includes:

  • Uber
  • Lime
  • Bumble
  • Box
  • Bungie
  • Yelp
  • Match Group
