Walgreens War On Women

Walgreens, who had decided in their corporate wisdom to punch-down on women,  is the closest retail operation to Tengrain’s Little Hut (probably less than 2-minute walk, in fact), and I will no longer be giving them my business, let alone my Ameros:

Walgreens will not distribute abortion pills in several states where abortion is legal, denying access to federally approved medications amid political and legal threats from the antiabortion movement and state Republican leaders.

The pharmacy chain’s decision to withhold sales of mifepristone in Alaska, Iowa, Kansas and Montana threatens to further squeeze access to abortion since the Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade, dramatically reducing the options for terminating a pregnancy in the United States. Health-care companies have been forced into the role of health-care arbiters, balancing the job of dispensing approved medications against a thicket of issues, including legal risks and corporate reputation.

It’s not really like we have many choices as consumers as chain pharmacies go, but I would rather walk 15 minutes to Rite Aid or 20 to local chain Bartell, or even use the sad pharmacies at Kroger and/or Safeway.

This is a “You’re Dead To Me” moment.

      Honestly, it probably is, but just for the convenience factor this one bites.

      (They have terrible prices, so I probably should have gone elsewhere anyway.)

    I get my blood pressure meds and my statins at Safeway. They always text me when they’re ready to pick up. It’s a fairly easy process. I’m not expecting I’ll ever need Mifepristone, but they’re available there too, at least for now. The White House has an opinion on this matter…

      Oo. Sorry.

      Ours is our local grocery store, which is part of Kroger. So far, so good as to these pills. Moving from there would mean going to Walmart, which aside from being Walmart, is 8 miles away, across town.

      Sigh. I know Kobach will be working on them next, too. He sent CVS the same letter he sent Walgreen’s in KS, aside from Walgreen’s awful decision. He’ll work on them one by one. Alsotoo our batcrap crazy state senators want to make the pills illegal in the state, and are well on their way to getting there. It is unknown if a veto would survive, but I know it will happen when it passes both houses.


  4. I’m not sure what to do. I get free delivery from Walgreens & I’m not sure if I can get free delivery from CVS or Rite Aid or even Wegmans. Being disabled, delivery is a must, especially during the winter months when it’s so difficult getting out & about. I’m going to have to do some homework this week.
