TOPEKA (KSNT) – The Kansas Office of the Attorney General issued a letter to Walgreens Monday warning them about providing abortion access to Kansans through its mail-order pharmacy business.
Attorney General Kris Kobach sent the letter to Danielle Gray, Walgreens’ executive vice president, stating that the company’s plan to provide abortion pills to Kansans is illegal under both federal and state law. Federal law prohibits knowingly mailing anything that can produce an abortion, while Kansas law requires that abortifacients like mifepristone have to be administered by the prescribing doctor.
This comes just days after a group of 20 state attorneys general came together to warn both CVS and Walgreens that they could face legal consequences if they sell abortion pills by mail in their states. This group of attorneys general, like Kobach, warned that CVS and Walgreens are in violation of both federal and state laws.
