Many companies have announced that they will cover the travel expenses of their employees in order to perform safe abortion in an area that is allowed, after the shock decision of the US Supreme Court that reversed the constitutional nature of the right to abortion.

Walt Disney announced today that it will cover travel expenses for its employees seeking “family planning or reproductive care” in light of the decision.

The company told its employees that it recognizes the impact of the Court’s ruling and remains committed to providing comprehensive access to quality healthcare.

The benefits provided by the company will cover the cost of employees who need to travel to another location to access care, including abortion.

Disney employs about 80,000 people at Walt Disney World in Florida, where Gov. Ron de Sandis has signed a bill banning abortions after 15 weeks’ gestation.

The Florida law, which is scheduled to take effect July 1, is based on the Mississippi 15-week ban, which was at the heart of the Supreme Court ruling.

America’s largest bank, JPMorgan Chase, has also been added to the growing list of large companies that will cover the costs of US-based employees who must travel to have a legal abortion.

A similar decision was announced by Goldman Sachs and Bank of America.

Alaska Airlines also announced today that, despite the Supreme Court ruling on abortions, it will continue to cover the travel expenses of its employees to undergo “certain medical procedures and treatments” that will not be available in the areas where they live.
