    The Facts

    • On Tues., Yelp announced that they will offer financial assistance to employees and their spouses who need to travel out of state for abortion care.

    • Yelp joins companies including Bumble Inc., Match Group Inc., Apple and Levi Strauss & Co. in their expansion of reproductive healthcare provisions.

    The Spin

    Left narrative

    This marks Yelp as an advocator for female reproductive rights and gender equality. It's a positive step towards fighting back against draconian restrictions to healthcare access for women in the US.

    Right narrative

    States like Texas are moving to protect the unborn from current extreme pro-abortion laws. Yelp, along with other companies, shouldn't be undermining legislative progress in an attempt to push their pro-abortion agenda.

    Progressive narrative

    More needs to be done. While this is helpful to professional, white-collar women, those on low incomes, who often struggle to afford or access care, will be left behind.
