I don't usually go into political diatribes here. I find the sorts of political arguments that one gets into on the Internet tedious. But I'm making a rare exception here, because it's something I feel strongly about. I'm shaking out the ole boycott rug to protest pharmacists that refuse to fill contraception prescriptions. The idea of someone, anyone at all, mucking with my or any woman's decisions about her body and her life gets me spitting mad. As such, Target will no longer be receiving my consumer dollars until they revamp their policies since apparently, Target is A-OK with their pharmacists being righteous misogynists.

pharmacists are being paid to fill prescriptions, not force their morality on their customers. being able to refuse to fill a prescription is like a janitor being able to refuse mopping the floor. if you don't want to take on all the responsibilities of your chosen profession, do something else and save the general population the headache.
that being said, walgreens and kroger does the same thing, although it's technically against company policy for kroger. in sluts4choice we've talked a lot about the various pharmacies that will and will not fill ec, and about the only one that i know has taken an active stand for filling all prescriptions is cvs.
