PublicSq., a shopping app catering to patriotic retailers, has recently introduced a new policy to provide a $5,000 baby bonus to its employees.

The decision comes as a response to other companies offering to cover travel expenses related to abortions.

“We did see the world going in this direction that we believe is really anti-family,” Michael Seifert, CEO and founder of PublicSq., said during “Fox & Friends Weekend.”

“We think that ultimately a company is only as strong as the families that built it, and then for us, we’re a pro-family company. We’re unashamed about that. And we’re actually the largest marketplace in the country of pro-family businesses,” Seifert said. “So we thought, what better way to express this value that’s core to our beliefs than actually putting some money behind it, putting our money where our mouth is.”

Seifert shared the announcement on Twitter, emphasizing the company’s stance of supporting employees in their decision to have children. The $5,000 bonus is applicable to both male and female employees, regardless of whether the baby is biological or adopted.

“We are a network of patriotic small businesses that allows you to find high-quality alternatives to woke corporations. We also just implemented a policy where we will pay our employees a $5,000 bonus when they have a baby or adopt,” he tweeted. “While some companies in America pay their employees to kill their unborn children, we pay ours to have as many babies as possible.”

After the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in a 6-3 vote which held that abortion is not a constitutional right, over 50 companies committed to offering resources to employees seeking abortions.

“We do not pretend to know how our political system or society will respond to today’s decision overruling Roe and Casey. And even if we could foresee what will happen, we would have no authority to let that knowledge influence our decision,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote in his majority opinion. “We can only do our job, which is to interpret the law, apply longstanding principles of stare decisis, and decide this case accordingly.”

“We therefore hold that the Constitution does not confer a right to abortion. Roe and Casey must be overruled, and the authority to regulate abortion must be returned to the people and their elected representatives,” he added.
