Target Pharmacist Refuses Prescription

If you thought it was just the mouth-breathers at Wal-Mart, think again.

A 26-year-old Missouri woman was refused EC [Emergenncy Contraceptives] when she handed her prescription to a pharmacist at a Target store in Fenton, MO, on September 30. The woman was told by the pharmacist, “I won’t fill it. It’s my right not to fill it.” She was told that she could go to a local Walgreens instead.
Drop by Planned Parenthood, the originator of this story, and send an e-mail to a growing list of stores whose pharmacists have refused to fill contraceptive prescriptions.
