Women’s Rights, Free Speech

First they take away abortion, then they take away contraception, then they take away sterilization, then they take away all the rest of your rights.

👉 Politico: Walgreens won’t distribute abortion pills in states where GOP AGs object – “The nation’s second-largest pharmacy chain confirmed Thursday that it will not dispense abortion pills in several states where they remain legal — acting out of an abundance of caution amid a shifting policy landscape, threats from state officials and pressure from anti-abortion activists.”
