More on the Dispense as Written debate: Americablog covers the latest in Target's intellectually indefensible (not to mention reprehensible) emergency contraceptive policy…And a MUG reader sends us this:
I live in East Harlem and the pharmacy a block from my apt., Metropolitan Pharmacy, has a sign that alerts customers that the pharmacist — a Muslim in this predominantly Hispanic and black community — will not fill prescriptions for emergency contraception. In your Oct 26th email, you wrote: "Missouri is one of four states that specifically allow pharmacists to follow their conscience (NY is not one of them)." But in accordance with Section 20-713.1 of a New York City Council law passed in 2003, "Any pharmacy that does not sell emergency contraception must conspicuously post, at or adjacent to each counter…indicating in large type that emergency contraception is not sold at such a pharmacy."
