Roe v. Wade overturned — Google responds in a letter to employees

What you need to know

  • The US supreme court issued a ruling that effectively overturned Roe v. wade.
  • The ruling removes the federal right for women to have an abortion and hands that decision to the states.
  • Google says that it will support employee relocations “without justification.”

On Friday, a US Supreme Court ruling overturned Roe v. Wade, removing federal protections for a pregnant woman’s right to an abortion. While the decision does not make the procedure illegal on a national level, it leaves it up to the states to implement their own laws, many of which have banned the practice.

In response to the ruling, Google has issued a letter to its employees, urging employees to be respectful and mindful of one another. The letter, which was obtained by The Verge, also states that employees are allowed to relocate “without justification” while encouraging them to seek additional support if necessary.
