After the US Supreme Court overthrew Roe vs Wade on June 24, it is now illegal in many states in the United States to have an abortion.
Because of the extreme mental and physical effects this can have on a person, these bans will also affect businesses in the United States if people are unable to have an abortion in the state where they live.
The compensation will not only be given to everyone who works at Novo Nordisk in the USA, but it will also be extended to all other members of their household who are covered by the company’s medical plan.
As Novo Nordisk currently employs around 6,000 people in seven different US states, this support will benefit many people.
Novo Nordisk is not the only company that has decided to help finance abortions outside the state, as there are several other companies that have done the same, including IKEA, Tesla, Starbucks and Microsoft.
