Judge on abortion pill case delays public notice: report
Walgreens Boots Alliance and CVS Health announced in January that they planned to seek federal certification to offer in their stores the mifepristone and misoprostol combination for medical abortions, after the U.S. Food & Drug Administration loosened restrictions on where the drugs could be dispensed. Previously, they could be distributed only in health care settings. The companies would have needed FDA certification to do so.
After the nationwide retail pharmacy giants said they would seek this approval, a group of 20 Republican attorneys general sent a joint letter to executives at both Walgreens and CVS warning that they could face legal consequences if they decide to mail and distribute medication abortion in states with statutes that limit how residents can access the drugs.
