    Yet another Texas-based company is reacting to Roe v. Wade being overturned by offering employees money to choose adoption rather than abortion, according to an op-ed in Newsweek.

    Peter Rex is the founder and CEO of Rex, a tech company oriented toward the real estate industry. He argues that businesses should invest in adoption for their best interests. Rex slams big companies that brag about offering abortion tourism, which means paying for their employees to travel to other states to get abortions if the procedure becomes illegal in their home state.

    Apple, Uber, Amazon, Citigroup, CVS Health, JP Morgan, Meta (Facebook), Tesla, Paramount, Patagonia, Microsoft, Paypal, Starbucks, and Disney are just a few of the big players to make this offer.

    "These businesses are ignoring the possibility that many employees may simply need a little more help to carry their baby to term. Instead of blindly paying people to end an unborn child's life, companies should consider paying them to welcome that life into the world," the tech company CEO argues.

    "That's why my business has decided to give up to $7,500 to employees who want to have their baby and give it up for adoption... For me, the motivation for this policy is equal parts personal and professional. On the former front, I am passionately pro-life. Yet there's also a strong corporate case to be made against abortion."

    Rex argues that there's a definite link between abortion and mental health issues, which would reduce productivity and job satisfaction at work. He also says advocating abortion is "short-sighted."

    "Even if abortion somehow improves a current employee's life, it also inherently ends another life of promise-that of the unborn child," the CEO continues. "That means companies are literally limiting the future supply of workers and innovators... If for no other reason than pure self-interest, companies should want to expand the pool of human potential, not shrink it."

    Rex isn't the only company instituting pro-life policies to counteract abortion tourism. Buffer Insurance, a Texas-based firm, made headlines for offering to pay the medical costs for employees who birth babies and provide paid time off for employees to have maternity and paternity leave. They also offered to pay for the medical costs associated with adopting a baby, The Daily Wire originally reported.

    A Facebook post from the company's account offered to share its method with other businesses. "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," it said.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan yet to be revealed to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
