Some of the country’s largest retailers are limiting their over-the-counter sales of emergency contraceptive pills, amid a surge in demand after the Supreme Court ruling Friday that overturning a constitutional right to abortion.
CVS Health Corp., Walmart Inc. and Rite Aid Corp. are limiting purchases of the pills, which were as of Monday already in short supply or out of on major retailer websites, according to the Wall Street Journal .
CVS and Rite Aid were limiting purchases to three, and Walmart had some pills available without limits but cannot them until next month, the news outlet also reported.
A CVS spokesman said the company has an ample supply of pills in stores and online but imposed the limitations to ensure equitable access.
Rite Aid said the decision was based on increased demand, and Walmart did not respond to requests for comment.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
