Walgreens Fires Another Pharmacist for Refusing to Sell Plan B

Walgreens: Leave your beliefs at the door.

Remember that Plan B has been found to be ineffective in average sized American women of reproductive age.

The manufacturer of this form oflevonorgestrel in Europe has advised that women who are 165 lbs or more NOT rely on this drug for birth control, because it is not sufficiently effective in women of that size or greater. 

Walgreens has seen fit to fire a pharmacist who refuses to sell an ineffective drug.

Walgreens has already had to settle lawsuits in Illinois for similar firings.  Firing another pharmacist in Tennessee displays an ardent attachment to an agenda of denying the necessary clinical and ethical autonomy that is required for a pharmacist to practice in a competent manner.
