Protest at Walgreen’s Annual Shareholders Meeting
Yesterday, a group of protesters went to Newport Coast in California to protest the decision by the pharmacy retail chain to begin profiting form the sale of chemicals that kill children before birth.
As covered by American ProLifer previously, this year, the Biden administration authorized general pharmacies like Walgreens to distribute the abortion pill, which is prescribed to kill children in the womb up to ten weeks in gestation. The pills are often used to kill children much later in gestation and have been shown to drastically increase complications for the mothers who usually end up delivering a dead baby on their own at home.
LiveAction, a group founded by Lila Rose was present at the shareholders meeting, along with the group’s founder. Over 100 protesters lined the streets outside the resort where the Walgreen shareholders held their annual meeting.
Although there were no acts of violence, Reuters reported on a statement from Walgreens accusing pro-life protesters of breaking “into the room where Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc held its annual shareholders meeting in Newport Coast, California on Thursday for its decision to start selling abortion pills.”
