Disney, Netflix, Paramount and Meta are just some of the companies that have immediately come out saying they will cover travel expenses for employees to get abortions.

The announcement came after the United States Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade on Friday.


“We recognize the impact of the ruling and that we remain committed to providing comprehensive access to quality and affordable care for all of our employees, cast members and their families, including family planning and reproductive care, no matter where they live,” Disney told the Washington Post

Paramount Global leaders sent a memo to staff Friday saying the company intends to cover travel costs for employees to receive services covered through company-sponsored health insurance where those services, including abortion, are prohibited, Variety reported.

Facebook’s parent company Meta, said in a statement that it intends “to offer travel expense reimbursements, to the extent permitted by law, for employees who will need them to access out-of-state health care and reproductive services.”

“We are in the process of assessing how best to do so given the legal complexities involved,” a spokesperson for Meta said.

 Dick’s Sporting Goods announced that it will reimburse as much as $4,000 in abortion travel expenses “to the nearest location where that care is legally available” for employees, their spouses and dependents in areas where abortion is restricted.

“We recognize people feel passionately about this topic — and that there are teammates and athletes who will not agree with this decision,” chief executive Lauren Hobart said on LinkedIn. “However, we also recognize that decisions involving health and families are deeply personal and made with thoughtful consideration. We are making this decision so our teammates can access the same health care options, regardless of where they live, and choose what is best for them.”

A Netflix spokesperson told Variety that the company offers a $10,000 lifetime allowance per full-time employee and/or their dependents per service for travel for “cancer treatment, transplants, gender affirming care, or abortion — through our U.S. health plans.”

Warner Bros. Discovery has expanded its “healthcare benefits options to cover transportation expenses for employees and their covered family members who need to travel to access abortion and reproductive care,” a spokesperson for the company confirmed.

Disney announced it would cover the cost of travel for “family planning” for any worker who cannot access care where they live, including “pregnancy-related decisions.”
