Starbucks joined Roe v. Wade by telling its employees that the company would pay for travel for any employee who had to travel more than 100 miles from home to have an abortion.
Here’s what a Starbucks executive said…”Like many of you, I am deeply concerned about the Supreme Court’s draft opinion on the constitutional right to abortion, originally established by Roe v. Wade.”
She continued… “I know this is stressful for many of you, so let me be clear – no matter what the Supreme Court ultimately decides, we will always ensure that our partners have access to quality healthcare. . When actions are taken that affect your access to health care, we will work to ensure you feel supported.”
The coffee company has promised its 240,000 employees that it will cover all travel-related expenses “when an abortion or gender-affirmation procedure is performed.”
based on leaked draft opinionat least 26 states could severely restrict or outright ban abortion if Roe is overturned.
