Attorney General Bailey Directs Letter to CVS and Walgreens Over Distribution of Abortion Pills

Published on

Editor’s Note: Furthermore, Rite Aid has indicated that it will facilitate the delivery of abortion pills via the postal service.

Jefferson City, Missouri In an effort to uphold the laws as written and defend the welfare of women and unborn children, Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey led a coalition of 20 state attorneys general to CVS and Walgreens, informing them that their announced plan to use the mail to distribute abortion pills is both unsafe and illegal.

As Attorney General, it is my responsibility to enforce the laws as written, including those that protect Missouri’s women and unborn children. “My Office is taking every measure to inform these companies of the relevant legislation, with the understanding that we will utilise all available resources to ensure compliance with the law should there be any breach.”

CVS and Walgreens have recently announced their intention to seek FDA certification to enable the sale of abortion pills via the postal service. CVS and Walgreens have announced their decision in the wake of the Biden administration’s endorsement of abortion by mail, which represents an attempt to circumvent the rights of states to protect women and children. The risks of complications associated with abortion pills are significantly higher than those associated with surgical abortions. Furthermore, the distribution of abortion pills, particularly by mail, renders coerced abortions considerably more accessible.

The letter informs CVS and Walgreens that “Federal law expressly prohibits the use of the mail to send or receive any drug that will be used or applied for the purpose of producing abortion.” The text is unambiguous in its prohibition: “Every article or thing designed, adapted, or intended for the purpose of producing abortion shall not be conveyed in the mails.” Furthermore, any individual who knowingly removes an item from the mails with the intention of distributing it is liable to be charged with a federal crime.

Furthermore, the letter indicates that the practice of abortion by mail, which has been endorsed by the Biden administration, contravenes state law. For instance, in the state of Missouri, it is unlawful to distribute an abortion drug through the mail. Furthermore, Missouri law also prohibits unfair or deceptive trade practices. Consequently, any trade practices that violate federal law are necessarily unfair and deceptive.

The attorneys general conclude their letter by stating that it is their responsibility as State Attorneys General to uphold the law and protect the health, safety, and well-being of women and unborn children in their respective states. “It is thus part of our responsibility to ensure that companies such as yours are fully informed of the law, in order to prevent any harm coming to our citizens.”

Missouri authored the letter, and was joined by the attorneys general of Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia.
