    As some woke corporations pay for employees' abortion tourism expenses, a faith-based insurance company in Texas recently announced it would finance maternity and adoption costs for its workers.

    The Supreme Court recently overturned Roe v. Wade - the 1973 decision claiming that the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution protects abortion. Buffer Insurance responded to the move in a Facebook post and announced several new benefits for employees welcoming new children.

    "Secular companies are paying the travel costs for employees to abort babies out-of-state," the company said. "Today we are announcing that Buffer will pay the costs for our employees who birth babies."

    Among the 'big ideas' listed on Buffer's website are "Faith" and "Families & Futures." The company is also "veteran-led and veteran-owned." Beyond medical expenses associated with pregnancy and paid leave for both mothers and fathers with newborns, Buffer will pay for any medical costs that emerge due to the adoption of a baby.

    "If you'd like to learn how you can provide these benefits to your employees, let us know," Buffer told other employers. "We have ready-to-use policies you can add to your employee handbooks."

    Texas is among several states that implemented additional abortion regulations after Roe v. Wade was overturned. Attorney General Ken Paxton (R-TX) announced that abortion "is now illegal in Texas" on the day of the ruling.

    As Buffer Insurance's post mentioned, several major corporations are funding interstate travel to obtain abortions.

    "Our company remains committed to removing barriers and providing comprehensive access to quality and affordable care for all of our employees, cast members and their families, including family planning and reproductive care, no matter where they live," executives from entertainment firm Disney said in a memo obtained by CNBC.

    Investment bank Goldman Sachs said in a memo obtained by Business Insider that it would extend healthcare travel reimbursement policies "to include all medical procedures, treatments and evaluations, including abortion services and gender-affirming care where a provider is not available in proximity to where our people live."

    Google, a subsidiary of technology conglomerate Alphabet, will erase user data for people who visit abortion clinics. "Some of the places people visit - including medical facilities like counseling centers, domestic violence shelters, abortion clinics, fertility centers, addiction treatment facilities, weight loss clinics, cosmetic surgery clinics, and others - can be particularly personal," the company said.

    President Joe Biden reacted to the end of Roe v. Wade by saying that he would support ending the filibuster to pass nationwide abortion laws through the Senate.

    "We have to codify Roe v. Wade in the law, and the way to do that is to make sure the Congress votes to do that," Biden said at a news conference in Europe. "And if the filibuster gets in the way, it's like voting rights, we provide an exception for this, or an exception to the filibuster for this action."

    Despite Biden's proposal to suspend the filibuster - the 60-vote threshold required to pass most legislation through the Senate - lawmakers have repeatedly rejected efforts to strengthen federal abortion statutes in recent months. The Women's Health Protection Act failed by a 46 to 48 margin in February and by a 49 to 51 margin in May. The bill would have invoked Congress' right to regulate interstate commerce and barred state-level regulations such as ultrasound requirements, waiting periods, and certain gestational age restrictions.

With Roe v Wade (originated in 1973) overturned by the US Supreme Court, thereby allowing decisions on abortion legislation completely returned to the states: Where do you find your position on such a "Life and Death" issue for the American People?
  Yes, I approve of the US Supreme Court's decision to reinstate this "medical" issue back to the states' legislative responsibility to regulate.
  No, I believe that every woman should have complete access to abortion on demand.
  This issue is far beyond my intellectual capacity to understand.

With respect to the leaked opinion not yet written for ratification regarding the U.S. Supreme Court's revisiting the original decision of Roe v Wade, whence now nonstop protests have erupted in neighborhoods where U.S. Supreme Court justices live, exhibiting the firm intent to intimidate these officers of the highest court in the land: What action should the federal authorities take?
  Do nothing ... Protests are a fixture of a free society.
  Enforce the law ... Federal codes exist to prohibit any intimidation through the pubic harassment of federal judges, especially Supreme Court justices.
  I have no idea, however, northern Virginia School Board Members must be shielded from protests at all costs.
