March 6 (Reuters) – California would not do business with Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc (WBA.O), state Governor Gavin Newsom said in a tweet on Monday, days after the pharmacy chain said it will not dispense abortion pills in some Republican states.
The state refuses to do business with Walgreens or “any company that cowers to the extremists and puts women’s lives at risk,” Democrat governor Newsom said.
Walgreens did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
The company said last week it will steer clear from 20 states, including states where abortion remains legal, where the Republican attorneys general have warned it of risking breaking the law if it distributed abortion pills.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration in January allowed retail pharmacies to sell abortion pill mifepristone, including by mail, provided they were certified under special safety rules for the drug.
