    This is all virtue signalling.

    But I wonder, with all the birth control options available, why is abortion even a thing? 900K a year?? Are people this lazy and unprepared??

    Dick's is only the latest of the woke companies to offer this. So I wonder, what is Dick's angle? (no pun) Does Dick's offer employees a medical benefits plan, self insured (employer basically pays the medical expenses and 3rd party admin fees)? If so, maybe it is a lot less expensive for them to pay for an abortion, that to pay prenatal and birth care, combined with maternity leave and childcare.

    I think maybe it is corporate America who might have a bigger interest in promoting abortion. But that would not explain the high incidence of abortion in minority communities. All the sex ed we have in public schools, and they can't even control the pregnancy rate of young people. Complete and total failure. We were in better shape with little or no sex ed, even in high schools.

    Yeah, the media/social media is bombarding young people with sexual content all day every day. But that same TV/internet is available for young people to learn how to prevent pregnancies also. Lots more information out there now than in the past.

    If Dick's really wants to help it's employees, there are other pregnancy prevention methods available they could pay for. No travel is required. But then, they would really have to pay, instead of just virtue signal.

    If she would have stayed away from Dick’s in the first place she would not have this problem.

    why doesn’t Dick’s just give away free wet weather gear, seems cheaper then an abortion.

    They don't have those stores out here in the west, but aren't they the ones that stopped selling guns after some mass shooting in another virtue signaling attempt a couple of years ago? Sounds like they wouldn't get my business even if they were out here.

    edit: Just checked and I guess they are out here in the west, I just never seen them.

    We don't have a Dick's Sporting Goods in our area, just a Dunham's.

    We have one locally but there is a Dunham's in a neighboring town.
    I never called you a VAXhole. You ASSumed that I did. Your self-ASSumed guilt is your problem and not mine.

    It takes a FAMILY to raise a child--Not Hitlery Klinton's Socialist, Anti-Family, Nanny-State...I mean, "Village".

    Islam is a religion of violence and terror as practiced by the Islamofascists. The Muslims that do speak out against terror are then terrorized by the Islamofascists and are ignored by the Lap Dog Media.

    Yes, Dick's stopped selling guns, or most guns, or something like that. More virtue signalling. School shooters gotta buy their guns someplace else rather than the same place they buy their expensive sneakers.

    Hell, I can't tell you where the closest "sporting goods" store is to me! Dick's and Dunham's are both sports clothing retailers, mostly. It's been years and years since I was in either one. If I am wanting fishin' stuff, I go to the bait store that sells fishin' stuff. If I want guns or ammo, I go to the gun shop. If I want kayak stuff I go the the local water sports store. And if I need bigger boat stuff, that store is 40 miles away on the coast.

    I don't buy or wear any of that expensive sports clothing. Tee shirts and throwaway shoes are fine for me. Those Nike and New Balance shoes are probably manufactured in the same slave labor Chinese factories that make my cheap shoes.
