Last Friday, the United States Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, which was a law that legalized abortion in the U.S.
During Sunday night’s post-AEW x NJPW media scrum, AEW President Tony Khan was asked if AEW would cover the costs for any employees who may want to travel out of state to receive a legal abortion. Khan said,
“Hasn’t come up, I don’t know. Honestly, since last Friday, we’ve been working on Forbidden Door almost non-stop … that situation’s never come up, so I can’t say.”
It should be noted that companies such as Disney, Netflix, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and others will be covering the costs for any employees who want to travel to other states to receive an abortion.
