The faith and love for God and His Word by Sam Walton, the founder of Wal-Mart, is being trashed before our very eyes. God blessed Wal-Mart because Sam Walton applied biblical principles to run his business. He never failed to give King Jesus the glory.
However, effective immediately, we are no longer to support Wal-Mart. On August 21, 2006, the "National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce" announced a "partnership" with Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.
I am EXTREMELY UNHAPPY about this, and have stopped shopping at Wal-Mart. Locally, we have now taken our business to Publix, Winn-Dixie and other stores.
Until recently, Wal-Mart and SAM'S CLUB pharmacies sold emergency contraception only in Illinois, where state law required us to do so. In February, a ruling by the state Board of Pharmacy required all of our pharmacies in Massachusetts to stock and dispense the product. pressure to introduce similar requirements is building in Connecticut and New York, and we expect other states to follow suit. In light of these developments, all Wal-Mart and SAM'S CLUB pharmacies will immediately begin carrying Plan B emergency contraception. As of Monday, March 20, all of our pharmacies have received their initial stock.
The company is maintaining its conscientious objection policy, which is consistent with the tenets of the American Pharmaceutical Association. This policy, except where prohibited by law, allows any Wal-Mart or SAM'S CLUB pharmacy Associate who does not feel comfortable dispensing a prescription for certain medications [those which are not considered core to the practice of pharmacy], including Plan B emergency contraception, to refer customers to another pharmacist or pharmacy as spelled out in our policy. We do require that these Associates fulfill their obligation to help customers by referring them to another pharmacy that stocks the product.
