MONROE, La. (KNOE) - Dick’s Sporting Goods is looking to mitigate the effects its employees might feel following the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

Friday’s ruling makes abortion illegal in some states, including Louisiana, where a trigger ban went into immediate effect.

The company, which has a store at Pecanland Mall in Monroe, says it is prepared to offer up to $4,000 in travel expenses for employees who have to travel to another state to get an abortion.

In a message shared by the company’s official Twitter account, the offer extends to spouses and dependents as well. See the full message below.
