Don’t Ban Equality is a coalition of 1,000+ businesses making the clear case that public policies that restrict reproductive health care are bad for business. Access to reproductive healthcare is a core business issue because it impacts operations, benefits, culture, workforce health and safety, and competitiveness for talent – and it is backed by bipartisan public opinion.

Don't Ban Equality

It's time for companies to stand up for reproductive healthcare

What to know:

  • A majority of Republican (68%), Democratic (86%) and Independent (74%) workers think their employer should take concrete steps to protect abortion access. Nearly three in four Democrats (73%) and majorities of independents (57%) and Republicans (55%) oppose such [anti-abortion] laws.
  • More than half of young women are making plans about where to live based on whether abortion is accessible in a state.
  • 65% of college-educated workers say that they would be discouraged from taking a job in a state where politicians are trying to restrict access to reproductive care.
  • Economic losses from increased reproductive care restrictions, including labor force impact and earnings, cost the economy an estimated $172 billion annually (up from $146 billion)
  • Women who don’t have access to abortion care are three times more likely to leave the workforce and four times more likely to live in poverty. (Key data here and here.)

Read the Statement

Equality in the workplace is one of the most important business issues of our time.

Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health, independence, and economic stability of our workers and customers.

When everyone is empowered to succeed, our companies, our communities, and our economy are better for it.

The economic losses from existing abortion restrictions, including labor force impact and earnings, already cost state economies across the nation an estimated $105 billion annually.* 

Simply put, public policies that restrict reproductive health care, including the Supreme Court’s recent decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, go against our values and are bad for business. It impairs our ability to build diverse and inclusive workforce pipelines, recruit top talent across states, and protect the well-being of all the people who keep our businesses thriving day in and out

The future of gender equality hangs in the balance, putting our families, communities, businesses, and the economy at risk.

We stand against policies that hinder people’s health, independence, and ability to fully succeed in the workplace.
