Dick’s Sporting Goods will pay up to $4,000 toward the “travel expenses” of any employee who “needs” to go out of state to get an abortion. This company isn’t alone, either. More than 25 big businesses crafted such policies in the run-up to the June 24 Dobbs decision overturning Roe v. Wade.

Meanwhile, corporate America is encouraging wide-scale immigration and using work visas to replace Americans with foreigners. And some say this is no coincidence.

Dick’s $4,000 “death benefit” (or killing benefit) will also cover the travel of one “support person,” for “employees who live in states with abortion restrictions, so they ‘can…choose what is best for them,’ CEO Lauren Hobart said in a LinkedIn post,” reports

Other companies adopting this policy include “Starbucks, Tesla, Yelp, Airbnb, Microsoft, Netflix, Patagonia, DoorDash, JPMorgan Chase, Levi Strauss, PayPal, Amazon…Reddit…Walt Disney Company, Meta…and Condé Nast,” The New York Times informs. Though “most of them avoided making public statements directly referencing the [Dobbs] ruling,” the paper also reported, “Levi Strauss called on business leaders to take a stand against the ruling.”

“’Protection of reproductive rights is a critical business issue impacting our work force, our economy and progress toward gender and racial equity,’ the company said,” the Times continued. “’Given what is at stake, business leaders need to make their voices heard.’”

Yes, if women are home tending to babies, they won’t be busy little corporate-hive-ensconced worker bees. But if fertility craters, whence will come, you may ask, America’s future workers? Corporate America has that covered. As Breitbart reported in July 2021:

On Thursday, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce held a virtual conference pushing to import more foreign workers to the U.S. to fill American jobs.

Mary Beth Sewald, the CEO of the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce, said immigrants, not Americans, “built” the U.S. and are the “foundation of this country” while advocating for amnesty and more legal immigration.

Amnesty, Sewald said, is “absolutely vital” to the post-pandemic recovery.

For the upcoming fiscal year, businesses are seeking to outsource nearly 310,000 high-skilled jobs through the H-1B visa program.

Similar trends are occurring with low-skilled jobs where there has been a 60 percent spike over the last four years in the number of foreign H-2A visa workers that U.S. farms have sought to import.

Never mind that 94 million Americans are outside the labor force and that the unemployment numbers, long cooked, are artificially low. Never mind that we’re continually warned that robotics and artificial intelligence will displace much of our workforce in the foreseeable future. We need immigration as far as the eye can see.

As mentioned earlier, some don’t think the confluence of these abortionist and immigrationist passions is a coincidence. For example, as Fox News host Tucker Carlson stated Tuesday evening, these companies are willing to pursue these policies

not just because of their philosophy but because…the companies have done the math and they’d rather pay employees $4,000 for every abortion they have. That is cheaper than parental leave or healthcare. Babies are expensive. It’s a lot cheaper to get rid of them concluded the H.R. Department at Dick’s Sporting Goods.

This is a highly progressive movement. When you have to bribe employees not to have their own family, what you’re really doing is liberating them.

Carlson then played a clip of CNBC’s Andrew Ross Sorkin, co-anchor of Squawk Box, squawking the talk as corporate America’s “spokesman.”

“I asked the question to executives and CEOs, ‘Would you leave the state, those states where the [pro-life] trigger laws are in effect?’” Sorkin said. “And the answer is no. The view is that this is, dare I say, a cost of doing business. And…I have to admit, I was disappointed there was nobody that I spoke to over the weekend that said, ‘You know what? We have a moral issue about this.’”

Of course, Sorkin means he was disappointed they didn’t say they were facilitating prenatal infanticide for moral reasons.

But, yeah, it’s “very disappointing that all companies aren’t paying their employees to abort their children,” responded Carlson. “When you love someone, your main concern is that they never reproduce, that they never create more human beings just like them — that’s a sign of love” (video below).

There was a time when big businesses would construct “company towns,” such as Kohler, Wisconsin, that often provided a nice lifestyle for not just workers but also their wives and children. Much if not most of the time this was driven by economics, as these companies were in remote areas and needed their workers nearby. Their policies were shaped, too, as business imperatives always are, by what is socially acceptable. And in earlier America, social norms dictated that men would marry and reproduce, and that their wives would stay home with the kids — and that abortion was beyond consideration.

But with women liberated from the home and into worker drone, and with abortion in some quarters exalted, culture-of-death policies can now pay. After all, cheaper than a child’s expenses from birth to baccalaureate to business world is just importing grown Third Worlders who’ll toil on the cheap. And what if it means the demise of America, as we know it, 20 years hence?

Well, a CEO knows that by that time he’ll be rich, retired, and reclining or recreating on a beach somewhere, far from the land whose bones he picked clean.
