Target pharmacies vs your uterus.

While I was away, Target put itself on the side of the republicultist TM and against women everywhere (including those who are republicultists TM themselves).

The concept is that a pharmacist should be able to not fill a prescription if they have a religious objection to it.

Here is the scenario: Customer A comes in to fill a prescription for the "morning after" emergency contraception pill. Target pharmacist says, "No. I don't believe you should have it, harlot."

Somehow, Target has decided that taking rights away from their customer equals protecting rights for their employees. Never mind that it means that it means that the pharmacist can refuse to do the job they are paid to perform.

I had been trying to get an address from Target to send my thoughts (support reproductive rights, or kiss my consumer dollars goodbye) and got the run around. Finally, I got a response that I could use.
