Wal-Mart can pretty much dictate what people in small towns buy, consume and used.
So what do you call that?
I call it Corporate dictatorship

marg, while I applaud your parenting, I can still see intrepid's point of view. Count your blessings; there's a little luck mixed in there along with your influence on your kids. And promiscuity has nothing to do with it - it only takes one time.

Walmart will sell the drugs because in the end their worship of EPS and DPS are more important than their dogma.

I really am surprised by how many people support this strictly because the government is sticking it to Wal-Mart. Just because Wal-Mart is the one named in the suit, doesn't mean that they are the only ones affected. This ruling applies to every pharmacy in Mass., be they big or small.
I am the last person to defend Wal-Mart on anything, they are a despicable corporation. I am also not a proponent to the anti-abortion crowd, and do not believe Plan B or Preven are abortion pills. This issue however has nothing to do with abortion rights or Wal-Mart, but with the right of a private retailer to decide what he/she will sell in their business.
No pharmacy can stock all of the different types and brands of drugs that are taken, but they generally stock the most commonly used prescription drugs in order to provide good customer service. If they didn't, people would go elsewhere for their medications. It doesn't make business sense to refuse to carry a drug that is heavily prescribed, unless there is not really enough demand to make it worthwhile.

This one is a no brainer, IMO. Wal-Mart's drug store should be forced to carry, these drugs. A drugstore has the responsiblity to carry drugs that Doctors prescribe.
