69. So Target is out to remove your
right to end a pregnancy?

Target could decide to never carry any form of contraception (from condoms to drugs that end pregnancy) and I'm sure other stores in the market would be happy to pick up the slack. Again, free market and all that.

By the way, Target isn't responsible for protecting your "reproductive rights." Anyone who expects them to do so is fooling themselves. They're in business to make money, which, if you think about it, will ultimately decide how they respond to this.

I still don't see what all the hysteria is about. Don't like a store? Find one you do like and shop there.

                             - please read this  Beaverhausen   Oct-24-05 05:21 PM   #96 
                                - Okay, I read it.  hiaasenrocks   Oct-24-05 05:25 PM   #99 
                                   - Don't you think that some items will be unavailable  yankeedem   Oct-24-05 05:29 PM   #106 
                                   - I definitely agree with you.  hiaasenrocks   Oct-24-05 05:34 PM   #112 
                                      - We can require the store to provide it  yankeedem   Oct-24-05 05:47 PM   #123

                                            - Okay so we agree.  hiaasenrocks   Oct-24-05 05:57 PM   #130 
                                   - You are arguing a point that isn't relevant  Beaverhausen   Oct-24-05 05:33 PM   #111 
                                      - Again....  hiaasenrocks   Oct-24-05 05:39 PM   #116 
                          - Not your motive  mzteris   Oct-24-05 05:09 PM   #80 
                             - Oh, I see.  hiaasenrocks   Oct-24-05 05:13 PM   #85

     - Why should they have to?  mzteris   Oct-24-05 05:06 PM   #76 
        - That's the overlooked issue, IMO.  Zenlitened   Oct-24-05 05:09 PM   #79 
        - Again, that's why I wanted to  hiaasenrocks   Oct-24-05 05:09 PM   #82

           - Wait a minute.  hiaasenrocks   Oct-24-05 05:15 PM   #90 
              - Uh, yeah. That must be it.  Zenlitened   Oct-24-05 05:28 PM   #105 
                 - Well, you tell me.  hiaasenrocks   Oct-24-05 05:44 PM   #122 
                    - As I 've already said, this is a wider societal issue.  Zenlitened   Oct-24-05 05:53 PM   # 
                       - There could be.  hiaasenrocks   Oct-24-05 05:55 PM   #127 
                          - Well, I think that solution still leaves room for women to be victimized.  Zenlitened   Oct-24-05 06:40 PM   #137 
           - The woman went to a state licensed pharmacy  yankeedem   Oct-24-05 05:14 PM   #88
