Abortion pill fight engulfs Walgreens
March 10, 2023
CWN Editor's Note: In February, the attorneys general of 20 states warned CVS and Walgreens that “federal law expressly prohibits using the mail to send or receive any drug that will ‘be used or applied for producing abortion.” In response, Walgreens agreed not to sell the abortion pill by mail in those states.
In response to Walgreens’ decision, California Gov. Gavin Newsom canceled a $54-million contract with Walgreens—even though Walgreens is still mailing abortion pills to residents of California and 29 other states. Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker and six US senators have criticized Walgreens as well.
