Tesla & Amazon Among Companies That Will Assist Employees With Costs Related To Abortion

Earlier this week, the Supreme Court’s draft to overturn Roe v. Wade, a 1973 law that protects women’s right to have an abortion, was leaked and many people across the country were in shock. 

Though some people are still debating the right a woman has to her body, companies like Amazon, Tesla, and more have made it clear that it is a woman’s right to decide by offering to cover abortion costs.


Earlier this week, the company announced it would cover up to “$4,000 in travel expenses for non-life threatening medical treatments that include abortion,” according to USA Today.

According to the memo, this will also be available for corporate and warehouse employees, in addition to covered dependents who are enrolled in the company’s health plans.

The ride-share companies announced in September that they created legal defense funds in hopes of protecting drivers who may be sued under the “Texas law for driving a person who receives an abortion.”


Citigroup stated in March that they would cover the travel cost of employees’ who have to seek an abortion out of state.

“In response to changes in reproductive healthcare laws in certain states in the US, beginning in 2022 we provide travel benefits to facilitate access to adequate resources,” the company stated in a letter to shareholders.


The company announced in its “Impact Report” that they would cover “travel and lodging support for those who may need to seek healthcare services that are unavailable in their home state.”

Roe v Wade is being brought into question because the Supreme Court has been asked to rule on a Mississippi law that challenges the 1973 decision.

The highest court has nine justices who serve on the bench for life. Out of those nine justices, former President Trump appointed three of them during his term. All three of Trump’s appointees reportedly voted to overturn.

This decision changed the “the political leaning of the court to one that was more skeptical about Roe v Wade and more supportive of restricting access to abortions.
