FRC: Walgreens And CVS To Become “Centers Of Death”

Via email from the Family Research Council:

Shortly after the Biden administration issued a rule allowing most pharmacies to dispense the abortion-inducing pill mifepristone, representatives from the retail pharmacy chains CVS and Walgreens confirmed that they plan to stock the substance — a move that will put more women’s lives in danger and “transform pharmacies from centers of healing into centers of death,” pro-life advocates say.

The Biden administration’s FDA changed the legal regulations to allow retail pharmacies that become certified to distribute the pill through the first 10 weeks of gestation (“although many clinics and telemedicine providers have begun offering it up to 12 or 13 weeks into pregnancy,” reported The New York Times).

Retail pharmacy giants CVS and Walgreens immediately confirmed they plan to complete the certification process and carry the abortion-inducing pill. “We are working through the registration, necessary training of our pharmacists … and will dispense these consistent with federal and state laws,” a Walgreens spokesperson told Axios.

“We applaud the FDA for following the science,” said NARAL Pro-Choice America President Mini Timmarajtu. Alexis Johnson, president of the nation’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood, called the FDA revision “a game changer.”

“If they go down this path, they become the abortion facilities of America,” said FRC President Tony Perkins on Wednesday.

A coalition of pro-life advocates, including Perkins, called on Congress to “stop the FDA’s reckless, ideologically motivated policies” by passing the “SAVE Moms and Babies” Act, which would require an in-person examination of mothers seeking to obtain abortion-inducing pills.
