(WOMEN SYSTEMS) – While many high-profile companies are offering employees money for abortion tourism in the wake of Roe v. Wade being overturned, a Texas-based insurance company is taking the opposite approach by allocating funds to new parents instead.
Buffer Insurance, a small company headquartered in Southlake, Texas, took a stand for both biological and adoptive parents and mentioned the Supreme Court decision when they announced the new initiative on Facebook.

They shared: "How Buffer responds to Roe v. Wade: Buffer will pay the medical costs for our employees who birth babies [and] provide paid time off for employees to have maternity & paternity leave. Buffer will pay for the medical costs associated with adopting a baby. Employers: If you’d like to learn how you can provide these benefits to your employees, let us know. We have ready-to-use policies you can add to your employee handbooks. #Impact #WorthProtecting #BeThere #BufferInsurance #Buffer #RoeVWade #Employeehandbooks #OurChildrenAreWorthProtecting.”
