    Women Sue Wal-Mart Over Morning-After Pill

    The Associated Press
    Thursday, February 2, 2006; 7:15 AM

    BOSTON -- Backed by abortion rights groups, three Massachusetts women sued Wal-Mart on Wednesday, accusing the retail giant of violating a state regulation by failing to stock emergency contraception pills in its pharmacies.

    The lawsuit, filed in state court, seeks to force the company to carry the morning-after pill in its 44 Wal-Marts and four Sam Club stores in Massachusetts.

    The plaintiffs argued that state policy requires pharmacies to provide all "commonly prescribed medicines."

    Wal-Mart carries the morning-after pill in Illinois only, where it is required under state law, said Dan Fogleman, a spokesman for Bentonville, Ark.-based Wal-Mart.

    Fogleman said the company "chooses not to carry many products for business reasons." He would not elaborate. But in a letter to a lawyer for the plaintiffs, a Wal-Mart attorney said the store chain does not regard the drug as "commonly prescribed."

    CVS, the state's largest pharmacy chain, stocks the pill at all of its drugstores.

    Dude, we all make mistakes. And I certainly hope that wasn't a gender-specific statement you just made, or I'm officially mad.

    If you are engaging in sex, you should be aware of the consequences.

    I'm sure they can find someone to push them down a flight of stairs.

    Hah, I know. Idiots act like they have a constitutional right to recreational sex and that the laws of nature and science should just have the decency to...bend around them on command.

    Yes, but what if the couple in question doesn't want kids? What if they ran out of regular birth control or condoms at the last minute and went ahead anyways thinking they could get the emergency pill later and it wasn't there?

    Yeah, I suppose that they could simply go to some sort of medical clinic or wait a few hours to get the pill somewhere else. But let's face it; sales of condoms and other things like that are probably right up there with cough syrup. That seems 'commonly prescribed' to me.

    Yeah but should I sue Walmart if they don't have the Battle of Hoth wave of Star Wars figures because it cost me emotional harm?

    That's where they made their mistake, and you have to live with the consequences, not find who to blame.

    Great idea. Hey, once I needed a pack of razor blades...they didn't have the brand I use! I'll sue too!

    The loss of Star Wars toys wouldn't potentially leave you with a baby. And I doubt the toys of which you speak are as common as the emergency pill.

    While it was silly to sue Wal-Mart, I think the title of this thread is incredibly misleading. Using a morning-after pill is hardly murdering a baby. By the time something even resembles a baby in there, the morning after would have long past.

    your attitude disgusts me.
    First of all, there's no such thing as running out of birth control at the last minute, whatever method you use, you use it once you can see how many more shots you've got. "Oh NO! I had 2 more condoms in this box but it looks like they just vaporized overnight!!! :eek:" :rolleyes:

    Next, you act like, well, once you get turned on, there is NO other option, it's a forgone conclusion, you HAVE to have sex in such a manner that the man's magic wand goes in and spews deep within the walls of the woman's luscious love-cave...No other possibilities.
    Counting on the availability and success of a M.A.P. is ****ing ******ed.

    They didn't stock enough Marvel Legends figures!

    Get me my lawyer!

    Seriously - they couldn't just go to Walgreens or CVS or any number of ridiculously common phramacies?

    In my point of view, its not about blame; its about readily available birth control and whether its 'commonly prescribed'. The fact is that it is. What better place for a couple to find it than a huge chain store that's virtually everywhere and open almost all the time?

    Well, it's my thought that if you can't find your medicine in one place, you go to another place. I have never seen a non-24 hour pharmacy.
