In a shocking display of disregard for the laws of Republican-led states, 17 Democratic senators have attempted to pressure Walgreens into providing access to abortion pills, even in states where abortion is illegal. According to a letter obtained by NBC News, Senators Patty Murray of Washington and Debbie Stabenow of Michigan led the charge to pressure Walgreens into providing the abortion drugs to the “strongest possible” degree.

This blatant disregard for the laws of Republican-led states is an affront to the rule of law and an attack on the values of conservative Americans. Walgreens made the right decision when they announced earlier this month that they would not be dispensing Mifepristone, a popular abortion drug, in certain states due to their laws prohibiting abortion.

The letter sent by the senators is a clear example of how Democrats are willing to ignore the law in order to push their own agenda. The senators stated that Walgreens’ decision to not sell abortion drugs in certain states was “unacceptable” and that they should be “transparent” with their customers on their policy when selling the pills in states where abortion is illegal.
It is concerning that other Democratic senators have expressed frustration in letters that Costco and Walmart have not made clear whether they would intend to go forward selling abortion pills. This shows that Democrats are willing to go to extreme lengths to push their pro-abortion agenda, even if it means disregarding the laws of Republican-led states.
This latest attempt by Democratic senators to pressure Walgreens into providing access to abortion pills is yet another example of how Democrats are willing to put their own political agenda ahead of the rule of law. Conservative Americans must stand up and fight against this blatant disregard for the laws of our country and stand up for the values we hold dear.
