Cal­i­for­nia 'won't be do­ing busi­ness' with Wal­greens af­ter abor­tion pill de­ci­sion, Gov. New­som says

Cal­i­for­nia Gov. Gavin New­som tweet­ed Mon­day that the state “won’t be do­ing busi­ness” with Wal­greens “or any com­pa­ny that cow­ers to the ex­trem­ists and puts women’s lives at risk” af­ter Wal­greens said it would not dis­pense abor­tion pills in 20 states where Re­pub­li­can at­tor­neys gen­er­al have op­posed the pills.

“Cal­i­for­nia is re­view­ing all re­la­tion­ships be­tween Wal­greens and the state. We will not pur­sue busi­ness with com­pa­nies that cave to right wing bul­lies push­ing their ex­trem­ist agen­da or com­pa­nies that put pol­i­tics above the health of women and girls,” a spokesper­son for the gov­er­nor wrote in an email to End­points News.
