Walgreens Bends to Pressure, Won’t Sell Abortion Pills
in Red States Even Where It’s Legal

The recent decision by Walgreens to not sell mifepristone in certain anti-abortion states is not just a blow to reproductive rights but also to the very values of a company that is supposed to be dispensing safe medication in our communities. By giving in to the pressure exerted by 21 Republican attorneys general, Walgreens has demonstrated that it is a company that is not willing to stand up for women's health and instead is willing to let the negative impact of its decision fall on the women living in rural red states where they have no access to clinical abortions.

This decision by Walgreens is a clear example of a company that is serving its own interests at the expense of the communities it serves. Walgreens must realize that its actions have wider implications, not just for reproductive rights but also for the trust that people have in the company. When we think about pharmacies, we think about a safe place where we can get the medication we need for our health and wellbeing. By taking this decision, Walgreens has lost credibility not just in the anti-abortion states but also everywhere else.

The fact that Walgreens has chosen to not sell mifepristone in certain anti-abortion states raises important questions about the values of the company. Can we support a company that doesn't support us? Walgreens has shown that it can't be trusted to stand up for the best interests of women. As consumers, we have the power to make our voices heard and let Walgreens know that we do not support their decision.

This decision by Walgreens also highlights the larger issue of reproductive rights and the access to safe and legal abortion. By not selling mifepristone in certain anti-abortion states, Walgreens is denying women access to a safe and legal abortion. This decision has far-reaching consequences for women in those states who may not have the means to travel to other states to access abortion service. Walgreens' actions must have wider implications, not just for reproductive rights but also for the trust that people have in the company. As consumers, we have the power to make our voices heard and let Walgreens know that we do not support their decision. It's time for Walgreens to stand up for women's health and reproductive rights, and not just for their own interests.
