California strives to affirm legality of abortion
SACRAMENTO – (INT) - California is pulling back its renewal of a multi-million dollar contract with Walgreens, following the company’s preemptive decision not to dispense the abortion medication Mifepristone in 21 states, including states where abortion remains legal.

“California will not stand by as corporations cave to extremists and cut off critical access to reproductive care and freedom,” said Governor Gavin Newsom.

The state Department of General Services gave formal notice that it is withdrawing a planned renewal of an agreement that was set to take effect on May 1st and instead will explore other options for furnishing the same services.
