Starbucks announced it will cover travel expenses for employees enrolled in its health care plan when accessing abortion or gender-affirming medical care and those services are not available within 100 miles of an employee's home. The benefit will also apply to dependents of Starbucks employees. In a letter to employees, Starbucks executive Sarah Kelly said, "Like many of you, I’m deeply concerned by the draft Supreme Court opinion related to the constitutional right to abortion that was first established by Roe v. Wade. I know this is weighing on many of you, so let me be clear up front – regardless of what the Supreme Court ends up deciding, we will always ensure our partners have access to quality healthcare."
