The Walt Disney Company Informs Employees It Will Cover Travel Expenses for Abortion

    In the wake of Roe v Wade being overturned today, The Walt Disney Company has informed all employees that it will pay for travel expenses related to abortion services. With abortion rights being overturned at a national level, states laws will take precedence and Disney is looking to protect its employees’ right to choose.

    Disney said that it is committed to removing barriers and providing comprehensive, quality and affordable healthcare for all employees and their families – including family planning and reproductive care.

    1. This is so amazing! I’m so happy to see Disney supporting their employees and the FUNDAMENTAL rights for women!

    2. Good for Disney! Always helping people make PERSONAL choices for themselves. Hopefully other large corporations will follow.

    3. “Disney said that it is committed to removing barriers and providing comprehensive, quality and affordable healthcare for all employees and their families – including family planning and reproductive care.”

      So… Disney’s actually going to provide healthcare benefits to their employees now?

      • Upon closer inspection, it appears Disney may not provide the actual medical cover free of charge, but states there are options available (I would assume this means they have deals with a medical insurer that, for a monthly fee, can be purchased. Therefore they are providing the access if not the actual insurance?) However, they ARE offering to provide all travel costs associated with having to leave the state you work/live in, in order to receive medical care that may not be available locally, which in itself I would imagine is a huge weight lifted for any employee stuck in such a situation. Well done Disney!
