Activists Boycott After Walgreens Abortion Pill Submission To Kansas AG Kobach Flex

Very few people on Twitter understand what they're angry about . . . So this post is dedicated to sharing the basics of the latest facet of the abortion debate in Kansas . . .

On Feb 17, in response to the letter , Walgreens wrote to Kris W. Kobach, the attorney general of Kansas, that the company: “does not intend to dispense Mifepristone within your state and does not intend to ship Mifepristone into your state from any of our pharmacies. If this approach changes, we will be sure to notify you.” In 2022, Kansas voters rejected a constitutional amendment that would have allowed the legislature to ban abortion.

More importantly . . . Here's the crux of the debate:

The attorneys general’s letter argued pharmacy companies would be in violation of federal law, which prohibits the distribution of abortion drugs by post. The Biden administration has contended that sending mifepristone by mail does not violate the law, writing in that “the mere mailing of such drugs to a particular jurisdiction is an insufficient basis for concluding that the sender intends them to be used unlawfully” and noting that the drug has multiple uses, including abortion.

And all of this has inspired the bots and political denizens to go haywire via social media.
