President Gavin Newsom Strikes at Walgreens - WSJ

Gavin Newsom said he doesn’t plan to run for President in 2024, but the California Governor already seems to think he can dictate policy in the other 49 states. Consider his decision this week to punish Walgreens for complying with other state abortion laws.

“California won’t be doing business with @walgreens—or any company that cowers to the extremists and puts women’s lives at risk,” Mr. Newsom tweeted on Monday. Walgreens isn’t bowing to extremists. It’s trying to navigate a complicated legal and political thicket after the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision last summer turned abortion regulation back to the states.


Governor Gavin is an odious amphibian is he not? I say this with all due respect to the newts and salamanders of this rich world, which are in fact rather cute creatures. Still, it might make a good classroom hypothetical. What should the BOD of Walgreens do in a case like this? What if you were a Catholic member of the Board?

If I were on the board I might recommend getting a legal opinion on the constitutionality of being discriminated against by virtue of obeying the laws of the land.
