Live Action’s new video, “A Generous Offer,” is part of a satire series calling out the hypocrisy of “Pro-Choice Bosses” who incentivize abortions for their pregnant employees. This year, countless corporations have alarmingly jumped on board to offer to pay for their employees’ abortion-related expenses — after all, it costs less to pay for those expenses than it does to pay for an employee’s maternity leave. And after abortions, employees are back to work in their cubicles in just a few days.
Companies including Amazon, Starbucks, CitiGroup, CNN, Comcast-NBC Universal, and Netflix (to name just a few) have chosen to subsidize abortion travel for employees located in pro-life states — including airfare, hotel costs, restaurants, and child care. Yet the Wall Street Journal recently reported that only 35% of companies offer paid maternity leave to their employees — and despite promoting the new “benefit” of abortions for employees, Disney subsidiary Hulu even quietly reduced its maternity leave to just eight weeks.

“A Generous Offer” draws attention to the false sense of support these companies are showing their pregnant employees. In the video, an employee named Megan is invited into a meeting with her boss and an HR manager. During that meeting, they discuss her pregnancy and offer her fully paid leave including travel expenses — however, it becomes clear to Megan that this offer only applies if she has an abortion.
The company does not appear willing to provide the same benefits if she keeps her baby.
“Megan, you are a valued member of this company and we have a generous package to help you out for the days ahead,” says her boss. “Paid time off, appointment expenses covered, meals covered, flights in and out of state,” says her boss. “We want to make sure our workers are taken care of.”
It doesn’t take long for Megan to figure out that her company expects her to abort her baby in order to maintain proper devotion and commitment to the company.
Live Action founder and president Lila Rose said in a press release, “Women in the workplace are being lied to by their employers, who are claiming ‘female empowerment’ by offering to pay a mother to end the life of her child, which in fact is the most demeaning and degrading thing to happen to someone. We believe the satire in these videos can change hearts and minds by ridiculing harmful principles and bringing hidden agendas to light.”
