Actually west it was just a rhetoric, I think you have gotten a littler bit lost in the thread now, some of the later post are pretty good in information about what is all about.

Suing is the best way to bring awareness to what is becoming an issue when it comes to women birth control rights in this country.


You have to remember that wal-mart is becoming a fast growing mega store that can be in one town the only store for miles to service the public the actually have an obligation to the consumer.

Occurs all under the law.

to me, as a female, this is a very dangerous road that i see us going down. and before you say i just want it available for me, well i'm happily married, with three kids and not able to get pregnant. but, that aside, the precedent that is being set by pharmacies of any name is the total disreguard for the wellbeing of the person who trusts their pharmacist to be there for them when they need it. as others have said, walmart is going in and becoming sometimes the only pharmacy to get medications when needed. this lawsuit is to bring the law into focus, not for pharmacies to sell drugs that they don't want. it doesn't bother me that walmart refuses to sell music that is unedited, that they sell guns, that they pay their workers crap, that they push the little companys out of business, or that they get cheap products overseas and cut honest americans out of work. what bothers me is someone pushing their beliefs on others.
if i get a prescription, and i go to the only pharmacy available to have it filled only to be told that i can't have it because the person behind the counter doesn't 'morally' approve of it, you bet i'm gonna be mad. these pharmacies have to dispense the drugs that are approved by law. that goes for ANY drug. i don't approve of many drugs, viagra included, but it is not me taking these drugs. my job, as a pharmacist is to dispense the drugs legally prescribed without any comments.
i mention viagra, mainly because they don't have any problem dispensing that, but the consequences of dispensing that one drug leads to many of the problems that require the morning after pill.
yes i believe that some lawsuits are frivilous, but in this case, they are not asking for millions, they are asking for clarification so that others who may need this drug finds it available if they do. there are TO many people these days trying to push their morals on others and when they don't get their way they sue too. thats mainly whats wrong in america today, we let our manufacturing jobs go to other countrys and now we have a overabundence of lawyers who need to work, and are sueing everybody because we have become a country of the haves vs the have nots, and the only way to get from the bottom to the top is not through hard work, because the jobs are gone, but from lawsuits which only hurt us more.
morals do not belong in a pharmacy, they belong at home and in church between you and GOD. and if we are talking about my GOD, he would never hold me doing my job against me.

Very good post, wantthetruth, but I'm still not convinced that this is a moral decision by WalMart. It could be that it reflects the general morality of their local customer base, which would make it a dollars-and-cents decision.

I can agree with a pharmacy being required to carry all prescribed drugs, but Mass. allows this drug to be dispensed without a prescription. The suit is beneficial in that respect - that it will clarify the law.
