The Morning After


Dear Editor:

One and a half cheers for Wal-Mart. They changed their policy against stocking the "morning after pill." They will, as of March 20, begin filling those prescriptions.

It seems that all the other pharmacies are all doing it and so perhaps Wal-Mart feels they owe it to the stockholders. Nevertheless they will still allow the pharmacist to refuse to fill prescriptions if they personally oppose birth control. These self-anointed moralists are in the wrong business. I don't go to my priest to buy drugs and I don't go to a pharmacy to be a victim of his or her personal convictions.

Their job is to fill prescriptions filed by doctors and if they can't do it, get another job, or perhaps get ordained as a minister or become a priest.

[I'm] so sick and tired of all those intent on shoving their idea of morality down everyone else's throat.

When Wal-Mart hires pharmacists that satisfy the customer rather than themselves, they will deserve the other cheer and a half.
