So I just replied to an e-mail from Walgreens [View all]

I just got an e-mail from Walgreen's with the title "Where Did You Go?" I thought I would share what I sent back to them, especially since after I hit "SEND" on their website, it was not at all clear to me that the message actually went all the way through.

This is in response to an e-mail I received with the title "Where Did You Go"

I thought it might be of some value to let you know why I will no longer be shopping at, or ordering from Walgreens, now or in the future.

As an elderly male, it is hardly something that directly impacts me at the moment, but, your Corporate policies with regard to Mifepristone, and your decision to play games with where and to whom it will be dispensed have caused me to decline to do any further business with your company.

Women have the right to full health care, without having to second guess whether their local drugstore will provide them the medicines required for their current health issues, or whether the store will be under the control of a political minority who seeks to disrupt the availability of some treatments to some individuals, based on their own religious dogmas and delusions.

Beyond this immediate issue, you have shown that I cannot trust you to be there for me or my family when a moment of need comes around. You have shown that your first response will be to check with your political masters, not just provide the medicines and care that are needed at the time.
