‘Shameful’: Pro-Lifers Slam Decision From Pharmacy Giants To Begin Selling Abortion Pills | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Pro-life advocates slammed a decision on Friday from pharmacy giants Walgreens and CVS to begin selling abortion pills.

    Both retailers announced that they would start selling mifepristone, the pill that is used in over half of all abortions, at certain locations. The announcement, which was applauded by the Biden administration, comes ahead of a Supreme Court hearing on whether the FDA improperly approved mifepristone and other restrictions on the pill.

    "As two of the world's largest, most trusted 'health' brands, the decision by CVS and Walgreens to sell dangerous abortion drugs is shameful, and the harm to unborn babies and their mothers incalculable," Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America's State Policy Director Katie Daniel said in a statement shared with The Daily Wire. "This reckless policy was made possible by the Biden administration, which is pushing to turn every pharmacy and post office in America into an abortion center for the sake of abortion industry greed."

    Walgreens spokesman Fraser Engerman told The New York Times that it would begin dispensing pills in New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, California and Illinois to women with prescriptions. CVS is starting in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

    Ingrid Skop, a board certified OB-GYN and vice president of the pro-life research group Charlotte Lozier Institute, said that pharmacists "should not be distributing these dangerous drugs."

    "By pushing these medically unsupervised abortions, the FDA and abortion advocates continue down the slippery slope of chipping away at medical standards for women seeking abortion," she said. "This is not health care. This is an ideology that prioritizes destruction of unborn human life and does not care that the women injured by these abortions, whom I see in the ER on a regular basis, are collateral damage."

    The decision from Walgreens and CVS comes just weeks after several major scientific studies on the potential harm of abortion pills were retracted by their publisher. The studies' authors, including Skop, said that the retractions were politically motivated attempts to discredit their research as the Supreme Court hears the mifepristone case.

    President Joe Biden called the decision a "major milestone" in a statement praising the move.

    "With major retail pharmacy chains newly certified to dispense medication abortion, many women will soon have the option to pick up their prescription at a local, certified pharmacy - just as they would for any other medication. I encourage all pharmacies that want to pursue this option to seek certification," he said.

    Medication abortion has increasingly become a more common form of abortion, especially in states that have sought to ban abortion. Activist networks have been shipping foreign-made abortion drugs in red states to bypass state laws protecting the unborn.

With Roe v Wade (originated in 1973) overturned by the US Supreme Court, thereby allowing decisions on abortion legislation completely returned to the states: Where do you find your position on such a "Life and Death" issue for the American People?
  Yes, I approve of the US Supreme Court's decision to reinstate this "medical" issue back to the states' legislative responsibility to regulate.
  No, I believe that every woman should have complete access to abortion on demand.
  This issue is far beyond my intellectual capacity to understand.
