Another cultural battlefield that many see as involving good and evil just came to the fore and so Disney, which has already suffered devastating financial losses and seen its stock price cut in half after wading into another contentious issue, the groomer teacher issue, has decided to jump in head first.
It did so via a memo sent out to employees following the Dobbs decision in which it pledged to help them get abortions if they so desired, even if those abortions are outlawed in their state of residence thanks to changes to state law now that abortion is no longer treated as a fundamental right.
CNBC, which claims to have obtained a copy of the memo, reports that it was signed by Paul Richardson, chief human resources officer, and Pascale Thomas, vice president of enterprise benefits and well-being.
Further, CNBC reports that it said:
We recognize the impact that today’s Supreme Court ruling could have on many Americans and understand that some of you may have concerns about what that might mean for you and your families, as medical and family planning decisions are deeply personal.
Please know that our company remains committed to removing barriers and 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. In fact, we have processes in place so that an employee who may be unable to access care in one location has affordable coverage for receiving similar levels of care in another location. This travel benefit covers medical situations related to cancer treatments, transplants, rare disease treatment and family planning (including pregnancy-related decisions).
Lastly, we would like to remind you of the range of medical coverage options you have as an eligible employee of The Walt Disney Company, as well as the options for your covered dependents. As medical coverage needs are unique to each of us, we encourage you to contact your medical carrier should you have specific questions about your coverage. You can also learn more about the company’s benefit offerings at Benefits.Disney.com, consult the Contacts | Disney Benefits Portal (fidelity.com) or reach out to your HR representative.
Disney will continue to prioritize the health, safety and well-being of our team members and their families.
Absolutely ghoulish. The company that creates content for kids is now pledging to help employees kill unborn kids, framing its doing so as helping them with “family planning”. By that turn of phrase, Stalin’s Holodomor, which only killed at most 1/10 of the number of babies killed by America’s abortion regime (over 60 million), was just a “food planning initiative”.
And Disney, sadly, wasn’t the only company to pledge to help employees with getting abortions.
According to the Daily Caller, other companies have come out in support of helping their employees travel across state lines to kill the unborn, with that outlet reporting that:
Meta, Facebook’s parent company, made similar comments, according to a report from Reuters. Meta said it plans to reimburse travel expenses for employees seeking abortions, though the company is “assessing how best to do so given the legal complexities involved.”
Other companies offering reimbursement for travel for abortions include Yelp, Johnson & Johnson, Lyft, Microsoft Corp, Tesla, Alaska Air Group, OkCupid, Bumble, Netflix, and JPMorgan Chase & Co.
Still, given that Disney creates content for kids, its strongly pro-abortion memo might be the most ghoulish and disconcerting.
