Pharmacy giants CVS and Rite Aid have implemented sales restrictions on ‘morning after’ pills, limiting them to three per woman, following a surge in demand following the Roe v Wade decision, Your Content has learned.
Meanwhile, Walgreens has reported being sold out of the pills available for delivery, according to information obtained by Your Content.
CVS clarified that they currently have an adequate supply of the pills, but the limitation was put in place to ensure equitable access for all customers. Rite Aid, on the other hand, cited increased demand as the reason for their sales restriction on the pills.
Walgreens acknowledged the stock shortage in its warehouses but assured that its stores still had sufficient supply to cater to women in need of the pills.
The situation arises in the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s overturning of the Roe v Wade ruling, which has resulted in several states taking steps to restrict abortion access, as reported by The Washington Post.
