As the news broke on Friday that Roe v. Wade had been overturned by the Supreme Court, corporate America's giants began responding right away.

Big Tech's response was especially notable after the high court ruled that there's no legal right to an abortion on the federal level. That's because of the volume of companies that responded, and also because many of them hold massive amounts of user data that can, among other things, reveal if someone's been seeking or has had an abortion.

In the aftermath of the leak of the decision in May, Tesla (TSLA), Amazon (AMZN), and Apple (AAPL) were among the companies to volunteer that they would be offering travel reimbursement coverage for their employees seeking to get out-of-state medical care, including abortions.

Here's what tech companies are saying so far

On Friday, Microsoft (MSFT), Netflix (NFLX), and Lyft (LYFT) told Yahoo Finance that they all provide a similar travel benefit. Lyft has taken things a step further, announcing plans to start a Women's Transportation Access program. The ride-hailing company's been particularly vocal, donating $1 million to Planned Parenthood in September.

Lyft (LYFT)

Lyft said it will partner with Planned Parenthood to pilot a Women’s Transportation Access program, a move that follows a $1 million donation to the organization in September. The company also said its U.S. medical benefits plan includes coverage for elective abortion and reimbursement for travel costs if an employee must travel more than 100 miles for an in-network provider.

Netflix (NFLX)

The streaming giant will offer travel reimbursement coverage for its full-time U.S. employees and their dependents who need to travel for cancer treatment, transplants, gender affirming care, or abortion through their company health plans.

Microsoft (MSFT)

“Microsoft will continue to do everything we can under the law to support our 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," a Microsoft spokesperson told Yahoo Finance.

Tesla (TSLA)

In its 2021 Impact report published on May 6, Tesla said the electric vehicle maker will cover the travel and accommodation lodging support for employees who may need to seek health care services that are unavailable in their home state.
