State: Wal-Mart must carry emergency contraception

(CNN) -- Wal-Mart pharmacies in Massachusetts must carry emergency contraception pills, the state's pharmacy board has ruled.

Another fine example of a buisness being told what to have on thier store shelves. And they say WE are the Nazi's.

The Massachusetts Board of Registration in Pharmacy on Tuesday ruled in favor of three women who filed complaints claiming that the stores refused to fill their prescriptions.

If Walmart won't fill it go elsewhere.

Julie Battel, Katrina McCarty and Rebekah Gee filed suit against the company earlier this month.

Wal-Mart has until Thursday to comply with the ruling.

I would file a counter-suit to tell the government to get the hell out of my buisness.

The drug, which is commonly referred to as the "morning after pill," or "Plan B," must be taken 72 hours after sex to prevent pregnancy.

Also known as "Damn, I fucked up."

Wal-Mart currently only carries the pill at its Illinois stores, where it is required under state regulations.

I bet they would like to not carry it there either.

Wal-Mart spokesman Dan Fogelman said the company plans to comply with the board's ruling.

Once again, Walmart backs down.

Asked why the pharmacy only carries the pill in one state, Fogelman said that it was purely a "business decision" for Wal-Mart, based on its assessment that demand for the product was not very high.

Who cares why? If Walmart does not want to carry it, I see no reason to make them. Tell the sluts to shop elsewhere.

He added, that women's health was a high priority for Wal-Mart stores, and there are broader considerations.

"We are are giving the issue a lot of thought," Fogelman said

Namely how much they could lose in lawyer fees.

The board wrote a letter to Wal-Mart's lawyers informing them of their decision, and requiring the company to stock and disperse emergency contraception when presented with prescriptions, according to board spokeswoman Donna Rheaumeheaume

If I was Walmart, I would forget to get a supply in.
