Starbucks Announces That It Will Offer Travel Reimbursements For Employees Who Need An Abortion Or "Gender-Affirming Procedures" Within 100 Miles Of Their Home

When the leaked SCOTUS draft opinion showed a majority vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, abortion became the national conversation. Even major corporations had something to say about it.

We've seen the likes of Tesla, Citigroup, Amazon, and Yelp offer their employees some form of support or reimbursement to get an abortion within a certain distance from their home. While some people speculate that this is a move to save them more money in the end (after all, travel costs to get an abortion are much cheaper than maternity leave), many can't help but notice how eager these companies are to fall in line with the latest political and cultural trend: supporting abortion on demand at all costs.

Starbucks is the latest company to hop on this bandwagon, but their promise to help women abort their babies includes one more trendy cause.

Starbucks Helps Employees Get an Abortion or "Gender-Affirming Procedures" by Offering Travel Reimbursements

The most well-known coffee company released a letter two days ago entitled "Letter to Starbucks Partners: Ensuring Access to Healthcare." Sara Kelly of Partner Resources wrote the letter to inform Starbucks employees that the brand wants everyone to "have access to quality healthcare."

Kelly kicks off the letter by saying that she is "deeply concerned by the draft Supreme Court opinion related to the constitutional right to abortion that was first established by Roe v. Wade." She wants everyone to know that Starbucks' goal is to "ensure our partners have access to quality healthcare."

"Today I’m announcing that we are expanding our U.S. healthcare benefit to further protect your personal health decisions," she wrote. "Regardless of where you live or what you believe, partners enrolled in Starbucks healthcare will now be offered reimbursement for eligible travel expenses when accessing abortion or gender-affirming procedures when those services are not available within 100 miles of a partner’s home. This benefit will also apply to dependents of partners enrolled in Starbucks healthcare."

She didn't explain what constitutes a "gender-affirming procedure," but presumably it includes top surgery, hormone therapy, and anything else that aids people in changing their gender (or at least think they are changing their gender). Neither abortion nor "gender-affirming procedures" should ever or have ever been considered healthcare in the past, but corporations like Starbucks are doing anything they can to keep up with the radical intersectional narrative.

The letter also informs Starbucks employees that the company offers benefits that "support partners in planning for their future," including Family Expansion Reimbursement programs "to assist with costs associated with growing your family, like adoption, surrogacy or fertility treatments," paid leave for parents to welcome a new child, health insurance to cover "preventative care and contraception," etc.

While it's nice to see some real healthcare being covered by Starbucks, it's still disturbing to know that a company of this magnitude is encouraging and supporting its employees to abort their babies and mutilate their bodies.
