On Friday, two of the nation's largest pharmacy retailers announced they’d start selling abortion pills on their shelves. This decision comes just weeks before the Supreme Court is set to reach a verdict on a case insisting that the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) distribution of mail order abortion pills is dangerous and reckless.

CVS and Walgreens “received certification from the FDA to dispense mifepristone to consumers,” Townhall reported. The same report indicated that mifepristone’s accessibility at CVS will begin in stores in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, and that Walgreens will roll out the pill in select pharmacy locations in New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, California and Illinois.

“We continually monitor and evaluate changes in state laws and will dispense mifepristone in any state where it is or becomes legally permissible to do so,” CVS Spokesperson Amy Thibault said according to The New York Times.

This is incredibly harmful and nerve wracking for women and babies. Putting a pill that, if successful, kills at least one person on a shelf in a pharmacy gives off the impression that doing so is not a big deal.

The abortion pill works by chemically killing a child in the womb and then forcing the mother to deliver the child. It can cause up to a month of cramping, bleeding and severe pain for the mother. It’s also “four times more dangerous” than surgical abortions and has reportedly increased abortion-related ER visits by 500 percent from 2002-2015.

Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America’s State Policy Director Katie Daniel noted how horrific this move by CVS and Walgreens is. 

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. 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. Even when used under the strongest safeguards, abortion drugs send roughly one in 25 women to the emergency room, according to the FDA’s own label. Yet under Democrat presidents, the FDA has illegally rolled back basic safety standards, like in-person doctor visits, even allowing these deadly drugs to be sent through the mail.

The FDA clearly has an agenda and it isn’t to help people, it’s to continue pushing leftist policies that strip people of their most basic human right - the right to life.
