Fiona Cicconi, Google's chief personnel officer, sent an email to all employees on Friday informing them about the response of Google to the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe V. Wade.

The email states that Googlers "can apply for relocation without justification" and that the people responsible for evaluating their requests will be informed of the current situation.

Bloomberg reported that Google had sent employees an email in August last year stating that 85% of the 10,000 requests it received over the past few months for remote work or relocation were approved.

The Supreme Court ruling does not make abortion illegal in the U.S.; it instead leaves that decision up to the individual states.

Several states, including Kentucky, Missouri, Louisiana and Missouri, have already restricted abortion rights.

California, home to Google, is one of the states that have pledged to defend abortion rights within their borders.

Google's statement is coming as companies across the country, such as Amazon and Meta, declare that they will pay for employees who travel to have abortions in states that ban it after Friday's Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe V. Wade.

This would effectively reverse the federal right to obtain an abortion. Google stated that it would offer travel benefits to employees who seek abortion care outside of the state when the ruling was first revealed.

However, Cicconi explained that the U.S. health insurance plan for full-time employees and its U.S. benefits plan cover out-of-state medical producers.
