Hard to Swallow

HARD TO SWALLOW….The Stranger reports on the latest escalation in the pharmacy wars: pharmacists who not only refuse to fill prescriptions for emergency contraceptives, but have refused to fill prescriptions for antibiotics and vitamins simply because they came from a women’s health clinic that performs abortions. Lovely.

The only silver lining I can see to this stuff is that it presents a marketing opportunity for an aggressive pharmacy chain, which might be able to attract new business with a simple slogan: “We respect your privacy. We’ll fill all your prescriptions, and we’ll fill them with no hassles.” I won’t hold my breath waiting, though.
