WPP will pay for travel for abortions

by | May 6, 2022

WPP is updating its healthcare advantages for all U.S. companies to offer funding for travel that enables “consistent access to healthcare and resources,” together with abortion care, in response to an inside memo from CEO Mark Read obtained by Ad Age.

In the e-mail, Read explains that workers have reached out to him and different company management concerning the problem. “We don’t know the full details or impact of these potential changes in reproductive rights yet but we do know we want our people to have the same health coverage regardless of where they live,” Read wrote within the e-mail. “WPP is therefore updating its benefits plan to provide funding for travel that allows consistent access to healthcare and resources, including abortion care.”

The memo ends with Read saying the holding firm provides confidential counseling and other forms of assist, “free of charge to everyone.”

WPP plc is a British multinational communications, advertising, public relations, technology, and commerce holding company headquartered in London. It was the world’s largest advertising company, as of 2019.
