Amazon to pay abortion travel expenses

I guess this will become a new employee benefit as we descend into the hellscape.

Amazon announces benefit to pay for US employees who travel for abortions, other treatments
https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2022/05/03/amazon-abort…

Online retail giant Amazon.com took a firm stance Monday pushing against a prevailing Republican-led push to restrict access to abortion, telling its staff that it would pay up to $4,000 in travel expenses for non-life threatening medical treatments that include abortion.

Of course if you need “emergency treatment”, the customary level of unlimited price gouging applies.

Of course, the right will claim ALL abortions are “life threatening” and thus can NOT be paid by Amazon.

I wonder how this will work in states like Texas where knowingly assisting someone in getting an abortion (even if in another state or country) is illegal.

We’ll know Texas is serious about this when they’re arresting suspected pregnant women in the Business Class lounge at DFW. Until then, it’s mostly going to be the poor who see any enforcement.

Nothing new under the sun. Everything in Shinyland is rationed by ability to pay.
