Pharmacies Must Stock Abortion Pills, Gov. says
March 23, 2023 | Massachusetts
The governor of Massachusetts reminded pharmacies Wednesday that they are required to stock a key abortion pill, despite a nationwide effort by anti-abortion activists to ban the medication.
The action comes as a federal judge in Texas is considering a lawsuit that would overturn decades-old federal approval of the drug.
Democratic Gov. Maura Healey issued a written statement citing guidance from the state board overseeing pharmacies that says they must maintain “a continuous, sufficient supply of all family planning medications, including mifepristone, misoprostol, emergency contraception, and contraceptive prescriptions.” (Excerpt from Independent.)
