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.

I'd have to agree. Pharmacists are very well trained for what they do, but they are not MDs. As far as I'm concerned, pharmacists have no more business making medical decisions than... Well, than insurance companies do.
Don't think we're likely to get that law changed any time soon, either. :-(
