Following My Conscience

I'm a week or so late to the table on this one, but: Albertsons is allowing their Illinois pharmacists to exercise their 'right of conscience' and refuse to fill prescriptions for birth control and emergency contraception. So I'm exercising my right of conscience by no longer shopping at Albertsons 'family' of stores (Sav-on and Osco, among others) until they tell their pharmacists to live up to their responsibility as a licensee of the state by dispensing all legally prescribed medication.

If you agree with me, why not take a moment to drop Albertsons a line and tell them how you feel?

(In our case, deciding to boycott is a complete no-brainer: the people behind the pharmacy counter at our local Sav-on are such a gang of idiots that we were planning to move our prescriptions to Walgreens anyway. Nice of them to give us a final push into action!)

I found it interesting that the Albertsons website requires a phone number in order to submit a comment or complaint.

Thanks for pointing out this issue Kevin - I made sure to pass it on!
