... for all of our employees, cast members and their families, including family planning and reproductive care, no matter where they live, Disney Statement to 'The Washington Post'.

Representatives of other companies made similar commitment statements via social media.

We recognize people feel passionately about this topic — and that there are teammates and athletes who will not agree with this decision, Lauren Hobart, Chief Executive of Dick's Sporting Goods, via 'The Washington Post'.
