Corporate Abortion Travel Benefits

Jul 18, 2022

Business leaders… will you have the courage to speak up as Buffer Insurance did? This Texas-based company is helping employees with medical expenses for giving birth and adopting children. Kudos to them for taking a stand and having the courage to speak up.

Christians… will you use your Finances, Influence, Skills, and Time (FIST) to support companies that align with your value system? A list of companies paying for corporate abortion travel benefits is available at the bottom of this blog.

When I worked with a health insurance company in the 1990s we had very strict rules for pregnancy and other health-related services. First and foremost, the company did not pay for abortions. That was considered an elected procedure and was not a covered benefit. Even when I had a medically necessary abortion in 2005, the insurance company would not pay for it, nor should they. To learn more about this “therapeutic” procedure, please see my blog post titled, “The Biggest Mistake of a Woman’s Life.”

Insurance has changed over the years. In the 1990s, health insurance ceased once a child turned 18 years of age unless they were in college. The goal was to get your child to grow up and be responsible. They should pursue a job with benefits. These days, benefits of paid time off, health insurance, life insurance, dental insurance, and vision coverage are rarely offered to a young person starting out, not to mention retirement or a pension. The benefits people my age (I’m 46 years old) took for granted are not being offered to our children as they start working full-time jobs.

Insurance in the 1990s was different for teenage mothers. If a child, a dependent on the insurance policy, became pregnant the insurance would cover medical expenses for the insured dependent (the mother), but benefits would cease at the time of delivery. The reason for this was quite simple. It was a matter of values and responsibility. If a woman was pregnant at any age, the husband (the baby’s daddy) should take care of the wife and child. The insurance company should not be responsible for someone’s irresponsibility.

By the time I left my place of employment in 2018, the life insurance company I worked for aggressively promoted their new gender dysphoria benefits and encouraged the use of said benefits along with the recruitment of the LGBTQ+ lifestyle. These topics were not even in our vocabulary in the 1990s.

The leader of any company (secular or sacred) has a big responsibility to steward the resources in a way that will glorify God. The purpose of having insurance (life, health, property & casualty) is to provide a backup plan in case something goes wrong. In situations where there are catastrophic events such as a hurricane, insurance companies have a responsibility to pay claims to help their clients rebuild. Anytime a major catastrophe takes place, the insurance company uses much of its reserves to pay claims. If a company has not been wise with its money management, it can go bankrupt and insureds can be left without the benefits they were promised.

Life insurance is designed to replace the income of a person who died and still has the responsibility of taking care of someone they love (the beneficiary). Life insurance companies are seeing many more death claims since COVID began in 2020 and this is causing insurance rates to increase and mortality rates to decrease.

Insurance companies should not be wielding their money to pay for unnecessary procedures. That is irresponsible.

Recently, I gave a presentation to a local Moms of Preschoolers (MOPS) group. Most of the women were military wives with young children. One of them explained that she could not get new glasses; therefore, she was having trouble seeing. She continued to say that she could not get new glasses, but she could get a sex change. Now, where is the rationale for this? The healthcare system in America is broken. If you are concerned with paying for benefits that do not align with your value system, please check out MediShare.

With the announcement of Roe vs. Wade being overturned, many companies jumped to announce they will pay for travel expenses and medical expenses for their employees to travel and terminate their pregnancies. This is absurd.

It is shocking that companies are so quick to announce they will pay to go to such great lengths to murder a child and few are willing to speak up to say they are pro-life or at the very least, not speak up at all. Lord, help us.

The following list is not complete. Each day, it seems more companies are willing to jump on the list to support the death of a child. My challenge to my readers is this: Will you support these companies in the same way you did before you knew their stance on abortion? Will you continue to work with these companies as an employee? Will you continue to invest in these companies with your hard-earned money? Will you purchase their goods and/or services in the future? While it may not be entirely possible to say no to all of the companies, I challenge us all to put our money where our values are.

Just like voting is vitally important in our democracy, Christians can influence with their finances, influences, skills, and time (FIST). It’s time to shake our FIST and stand up for our Christian values. Join us at His Kingdom Matters to learn more about being a bold and courageous Christian.
