At the end of last summer, as the Texas heartbeat bill took effect, corporations began to assure their affected employees that travel expenses incurred while procuring abortions would be covered. This trend accelerated after the May leak of the draft SCOTUS opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson. Now, you get to pay an abortion subsidy “tax” every time you shop for many goods and services.
I’ve been irked since the ’90s, when Big PR decided consumers preferred to spend their money at companies that undertook “social responsibility.” Not me — I’d rather pay five bucks less for that dress than bask in the virtuous glow of knowing I’d been coerced into funding the purchase and planting of a sapling or the rehabilitation of a gimpy sea turtle, or whatever. When I want to shop, I want to shop; when I want to donate to charity, I want to donate to a charity that I choose. Why should corporations force me to subsidize their favorite woke causes every time I do business with them?
But after the Dobbs decision, companies are in a lather to promote abortion — and consequently, there’s an employee abortion-travel premium built into their pricing.
