California companies announce financial help for employee abortion costs
Video

Following the news that the Supreme Court had overturned Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthoodv. Casey, several major companies announced they would cover the cost of travel expenses for employees seeking abortions.

Back in May, a leaked draft of the Supreme Court's ruling inspired companies to create policies that would support employees to seek an abortion in a state other than their own.

Apple, Starbucks, Amazon, Yelp were some of the first companies to enact new policies to support employees and now others are following suit.

Already 10 states have enacted trigger laws preventing people from having an abortion, five states are awaiting their bans to go into affect, and five other states are likely to ban abortion in some way.

Here are companies that are offering to financially support employees seeking an abortion:
