Walgreens Pharmacist Refuses To Give Woman Prescription To End Pregnancy
According to the National Women’s Law Center, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Mississippi and South Dakota have laws or regulations that allow pharmacists to refuse to fill prescriptions for religious or moral reasons. In Alabama, Delaware, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Texas, pharmacists are allowed to refuse but may not obstruct access to the medication. Eight states — California, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, Washington and Wisconsin — have laws requiring pharmacists to provide medication to patients. In 29 other states, there are no laws addressing the issue.
