Pharmacist denies woman miscarriage drug on moral grounds

The company told The Associated Press on Monday that the pharmacist in question was the only one on duty at the time, so he called another location to serve the patient. Gretchen Borchelt, the vice president of reproductive rights and health for the National Women’s Law Center, said it’s unclear how many women are affected by such laws because few may come forward like Arteaga did. Borchelt said her group has heard of women being denied prescriptions in at least 26 states since 2000. “I think it’s happening more than people realize,” she said.
