Yippee-Kay-Yay! Massachusetts Wal-Marts Must Carry Morning-After Pills

Wal-Mart is often the only pharmacy around, especially in rural areas. Massachusetts has just declared that Wal-Mart must carry morning-after contraception. This ruling comes after three women had sued because Wal-Mart refused to fill their prescriptions. This is such good news. I don't live near a Wal-Mart, so that is not where I would fill my prescription for anything. According to the article, "If Wal-Mart complies, Massachusetts will become the second state
after Illinois to require the world's biggest retailer to carry the Plan B contraceptive, which must be taken within 72 hours after sex to prevent pregnancy."
