Mark Hodges reports at LifeSiteNews:
Walgreens has adopted a transgender bathroom policy that allows men in the women's toilets and vice versa, despite that same policy creating a public relations disaster and financial free fall for Target Corporation.
As of November 2017, Walgreens' 8,100 stores welcome "all individuals . . . to use restroom facilities that correspond to the individual's gender identity, regardless of the individual's sex assigned at birth." . . .
The American Family Association (AFA) reports that the new Walgreens pro-transgender policy is the result of pressure from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Southern California after a customer was not allowed to use a Walgreens women’s bathroom. . . .
Breitbart reported that Walgreens "bowed to pressure immediately."
"As the AFA did in response to Target's 2015 transgender changing rooms and bathrooms policy, the family defender created a petition to oppose Walgreen's policy," LifeSiteNews continues.
"Walgreens' store policy endangers women and children by allowing men to frequent women's restrooms," the petition states, according to LifeSiteNews.
The petition also "has more than 82,000 signatures," LifeSite reports.
"Walgreens' new policy could potentially result in female customers becoming victims of voyeurism, sexual assault and physical attack. Walgreens must immediately reverse its dangerous policy that allows men unrestricted access into women's restrooms," the petition also states, according to LifeSiteNews.
As points of action, AFA "urges concerned citizens to call Walgreens and voice their objection (1-800-925-4733), and/or call their local Walgreens store," LifeSiteNews reports.
