Newsom refusing to renew $54 million Walgreens contract for California because pharmacy chain refuses to sell abortion pills in some states
By Ethan Huff // Mar 10, 2023

Because the pharmacy chain refuses to sell drugs that kill unborn babies in some states, Walgreens has lost its contract with the state of California.

Gov. Gavin Newsom made the decision to sever a $54 million contract that Walgreens had with the Golden State after the company chose to no longer dispense mifepristone, the first of two drugs in the medication abortion process, in 20 states.

Walgreen made the decision after receiving a letter on February 1 from GOP attorney generals in these states warning that continuing to dispense the drug may be an affront to the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

"We intend to be a certified pharmacy and will distribute mifepristone only in those jurisdictions where it is legal and operationally feasible," reads a statement issued by Walgreens following the decision.

Previously, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had indicated that pharmacies are allowed to dispense mifepristone directly to anyone who has a prescription from a certified prescriber. (Related: Last spring, Walgreens published data showing that Wuhan coronavirus [Covid-19] "vaccines" do absolutely nothing to prevent covid infection.)

Newsom throws social media fit over Walgreens decision to stop dispensing baby murder drug

The second-largest pharmacy chain in the U.S. behind CVS, Walgreens stands to potentially lose a lot of profits over Newsom's guttural response to the news.

"We're done," Newsom wrote in a tweet about how "California won't be doing business with @walgreens – or any company that cowers to the extremists and puts women's lives at risk."

An aggressive supporter and proponent of baby murder, Newsom simply will not tolerate any entity that does not likewise endorse his bloodlust for as many unborn children as possible to be terminated in the womb.

"We're serious about not investing in companies that cave to the extremist agenda of the GOP," Newsom added in a statement.

A spokesperson for Rite Aid, another Walgreens competitor, said the pharmacy chain will continue monitoring these developments in guiding its own decision about whether or not to continue dispensing mifepristone.

"Rite Aid is monitoring the latest federal, state, legal and regulatory developments regarding mifepristone dispensing and we will continue to evaluate the company's ability to dispense mifepristone in accordance with those developments," company spokeswoman Catherine Carter told CNN in a statement.

Ever since the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe, Walgreens and other entities have grappled with whether or not abortion drugs like mifepristone can still legally be sold in states where restrictions on abortions exist.

California is not one of those states, but Newsom appears to be letting his own personal views on the matter guide his vindictive response to Walgreens making a circumspect move to protect itself in states where abortion is now illegal.

There is a lawsuit currently in the works that, if successful, would block the use of abortion medication nationwide. This means the drugs would become illegal even in California, which could send Newsom into a maniacal rage.

"They're still a company that sells Disney 'rainbow' Mickey plush toys to celebrate the lgbtxyz agenda," one commenter noted in response to conservative sentiment that suddenly supports Walgreens simply because of its recent decision to stop selling mifepristone, as if this was somehow done for moral reasons as opposed to just protecting the company's bottom line.

"They are only doing this because they don't want to be sued."

Another person wrote that Newsom is punishing Walgreens because it has "decided to abide by laws passed in conservative states."

"Newsom is telling Walgreens to break the law in these states," this commenter added.
