Contraception Denied to Rape Victim

More pharmacists now feel encouraged not to do their jobs! This latest outrage comes our way from Tuscon, Arizona - not some one-pharmacy town in the middle of the prairie somewhere.

The issue surfaced in Arizona last winter, when Gov. Janet Napolitano vetoed a bill that would have permitted pharmacists to refuse to dispense it on moral or religious grounds.

But her veto was essentially meaningless, as most of the drugstore chains that dominate Tucson already allow that as a matter of corporate policy. Most also require that the customer be immediately referred to another pharmacist or drugstore willing to fill the prescription.
