Boycott Target

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.

For more links and rants, check out cmpriest's information-filled post and jinzi's very eloquent letter of protest.

If one pharmacist won't fill a prescription for religious reasons, another one at the same store should be required to do it by company policy.

No interfering with the individual pharmacist's freedom of conscience OR the patient's medical care. (I think that's what CVS does, although I'm speaking from memory here.) And if the pharmacist with the delicate sensibilities can't handle that, s/he needs a new job, perhaps as a minister of his/her particular denomination.

Quite upset about Target... they have the cutest dang underwear at very reasonable prices!
