CVS and Walgreens recently agreed to pay more than $10 billion to settle lawsuits alleging that they contributed to the opioid epidemic by recklessly distributing prescription painkillers.
The pharmacy chains haven't learned their lesson. They're now looking to recklessly flood the country with dangerous abortion drugs.
But plans to distribute abortion pills from pharmacy drive-through windows are running into some serious snags.
On this week's episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we discuss:
- A recent lawsuit with the potential to ban abortion pills in the United States FOREVER;
- Why Walgreens is now the target of boycotts from both pro-lifers and abortion supporters;
- How 40 Days for Life vigils in front of retail pharmacies are already making a lifesaving impact in local communities.
Watch or listen to the podcast by visiting:
The Biden FDA will soon require patients to see a doctor in person to get prescription painkillers...
...even as it deregulates mail-order abortions, webcam abortions, and abortions handed out through retail pharmacy drive-through windows.
Without protection from the government, abortion-vulnerable moms and babies are counting on you!
With just a few days left, sign up to pray at your local 40 Days for Life vigil by visiting:
Bel Air, Maryland
A young man parked near the 40 Days for Life vigil in front of Bel Air's Walgreens and shouted, "What's wrong with abortion?"
"He seemed like a heckler," said Joyce, who leads the campaign. "But it turns out that he and his girlfriend are in high school, and she is pregnant."
The couple was told that their baby is "only a clump of cells." But after talking with vigil participants, the young man decided to take his girlfriend for an ultrasound.
"He was grateful that we were out on the sidewalk for him and told us to keep it up," Joyce said.
Kalispell, Montana, has hosted many 40 Days for Life campaigns over the years and even closed an abortion facility...
...but this spring's vigil is the city's first to be held in front of Walgreens. 40 Days for Life general counsel Matt Britton recently visited the campaign and addressed volunteers.
"Bill [the leader] is doing a great job," Matt said. "He is able to talk to many people, and only about 10 percent refuse literature. Many are surprised that Walgreens would be dispensing abortion pills."
The Catonsville 40 Days for Life vigil isn't technically in front of the local CVS pharmacy.
But the abortion facility where Kim and her team pray is across the street from CVS, which means her vigil is doing double duty!
I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
God Almighty, You alone are worthy of our praise and worship. Having accepted Your Son’s sacrifice on my behalf, I in turn present my body to You as a living sacrifice. I pray that You would use me as Your vessel to rescue others who are perishing.
