Microsoft Corp. will help cover the costs of employees having to travel to get abortions or gender-affirming care, a response to looming new restrictions in states around the U.S. 

The software maker will “support employees and their enrolled dependents in accessing critical health care -- which already includes services like abortion and gender-affirming care -- regardless of where they live across the U.S.,” according to a statement Monday. “This support is being extended to include travel expense assistance for these and other medical services where access to care is limited in availability in an employee’s home geographic region.”
