Wal-Mart Reversal: Will Sell Morning-After Pill
Wal-Mart did a turnaround today and announced all company pharmacies will carry the morning after pill (Plan B birth control.)
However, it will allow its pharmacists who morally object to providing the pill not to have to dispense it. They can either refer the customer to another pharmacist or if none is available, to a nearby store.
Why do pharmacists get to refuse to provide the pill? Do supermarket cashiers get to refuse to ring up meat because they are vegetarians? If the drug is legal, they should have to provide it-- or find another job.
