Must read

In a message posted today on an internal employee message board, Apple said it was monitoring legal challenges to what it refers to as the “solely restrictive abortion law” being recently approved in Texas. Apple confirmed the authenticity of the message to TechCrunch.

“We are actively monitoring legal proceedings that challenge the exceptionally restrictive abortion law in Texas,” the unsigned memo reads. “In the meantime, we want to remind you that our benefits at Apple are comprehensive and that they allow our employees to travel out of state for medical care if it is not available in their home state.”

The new law essentially prohibits the vast majority of abortions from occurring in the state and is currently being legally challenged In a variety of ways. A number of companies in and outside of technology have taken public positions against the law in recent days. Salesforce has offered to relocate employees to Texas who are concerned about the ability to access reproductive care in the post-enactment state. Offers to cover travel expenses for employees needing out-of-state care were created by Match Group and Bumble, both companies based in Texas.

The message does not detail any further actions Apple is taking to actively oppose the bill, but says that Apple supports “the rights of our employees to make their own decisions regarding their reproductive health.”

Apple is a large employer in Texas, where it has a campus of thousands in Austin, as well as a manufacturing plant and many Apple stores throughout the state.

The full text of the message is below:

A message about women’s reproductive health care

At Apple, we support the rights of our employees to make their own decisions regarding their reproductive health.

We are actively monitoring legal proceedings challenging the exceptionally restrictive abortion law in Texas. In the meantime, we want to remind you that our benefits at Apple are comprehensive and that they allow our employees to travel out of state for medical care if it is not available in their home state. If you need help navigating care for yourself or your dependents, your health plan company can help you with confidence.

Your health and well-being remain our highest priority, and we will continue to do everything we can to ensure that you and your families have access to the care that Apple provides.
