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.

Alas, I can't remember the name. I heard it on the radio recently. The town is in NSW and starts with "M."
It may be Moree, but I think Moree would have more than one pharmacy, and this town definitely only has the one.
His reason for not stocking condoms is that it encourages sin, especially among teenagers. Now, I'm not in favour of indiscrimanate sex either, and I do worry about the culture of sex portrayed in magazines (picked up Cleo or Cosmo lately?).
BUT, I would rather see that the things are readily available. Kids have always experimented with sex, so at least condoms make it safe.
