Starbucks in jumping into the Roe v. Wade fray by telling its employees the company will pay travel expenses for any staffer who has to travel more than 100 miles from home to get an abortion.
A Starbucks exec put it this way … “Like many of you, I’m deeply concerned by the draft Supreme Court opinion related to the constitutional right to abortion that was first established by Roe v. Wade.”
She went on … “I know this is weighing on many of you, so let me be clear up front — regardless of what the Supreme Court ends up deciding, we will always ensure our partners have access to quality healthcare. And when actions impact your access to healthcare, we will work on a way to make sure you feel supported.”
The coffee company pledged to its 240,000 employees it will cover all travel-related expenses “when accessing abortion or gender-affirming procedures.”
Based on the leaked draft opinion, it’s likely that at least 26 states will either severely restrict or altogether outlaw abortion if Roe is overturned.
