Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From 9to5mac.com: “Apple emphasizes out-of-state medical coverage for staff after Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Apple has released a company statement in response to today’s decision by the Supreme Court to overturn Roe vs. Wade, which paves the way for states to make abortion illegal.

Apple said it supports employee’s rights to make their own choices about their reproductive health. It reiterated that its company health benefits include paying for out-of-state travel for procedures, if care is unavailable in their own state.

It is estimated that about half of the fifty US states will soon ban legal access to abortions, following the Supreme Court decision.

Out-of-state cover allows employees to travel to states where abortion remains a legal act, included with the company’s health insurance policy.

It’s worth noting that Apple’s benefits have accommodated out-of-state travel for more than ten years, so this isn’t anything new in light of the Supreme Court decision.
