The decision by the Supreme Court to overturn Roe vs Wade has nullified the federal right to get an abortion. The decision on how to proceed now belongs to each individual state. It isn’t known at this time which states will allow or criminalize abortions. Dick’s is acknowledging in their message that they understand that there will be states that support the right to abortions and others that might consider it criminal.

Message From Dick's Sporting Goods About Abortions

The CEO of Dick’s finished the message by writing:

We are making this decision so our teammates can access the same health care options, regardless of where they live.
