Walgreens has announced that it would not dispense the abortion pill, mifepristone, in some Republican-led states where abortion remains legal. In response, California announced that it would not renew a $54 million contract with Walgreens. 14 Democrat governors are pressuring seven large pharmacy retailers on the abortion pill.

A letter was sent to the CEOs of CVS, Safeway, Walmart, Rite-aid, Health Mart, Kroger and Costco, the governors urged them to let their decisions be guided by “science and medical evidence” and “not politics or litigation threats.”

The letter was signed by these governors, all Democrats, who are pushing for accessible abortion pills in their states.

Abortion pills continue to be in the spotlight. The decision on Roe v. Wade brought a new wave of unethical and dangerous abortion procedures. The pill. But it’s not the pill that we know of for contraception. Instead, it’s the pill that’s used for abortion. Contraception pills have long been deemed as dangerous to a woman’s health, but the FDA still allows them. Abortion pills are now in the spotlight. They have taken over the contraceptive pills spotlight from the 90’s.

Mifepristone is approved by the FDA to be used alongside misoprostol to end a pregnancy during the first 10 weeks — this includes elective abortions and miscarriages.

In some states, physicians are required to sign a prescription for mifepristone. In others, pharmacists can dispense it. Still in other pharmacies, mifepristone can be obtained over the counter. It’s all a hot mess because abortion pills cause a hot mess. The answer is simple. Outlaw mifepristone. Outlaw abortion pills and focus the energy of this debate to trimming the red tape for adoptions.
