Following the news that the Supreme Court of the United States has overturned Roe VS.

Netflix will offer travel reimbursements for their employees for numerous medical procedures including cancer treatment, gender-affirming surgery as well as abortion.

Paramount CEO Bob Bakish sent a memo to employees saying the company will cover travel costs for abortions. “Reproductive health care through company-sponsored health insurance, including coverage for birth control, elective abortion care, miscarriage care and certain related travel expenses if the covered health service, such as abortion, is prohibited in your area.”
