60. Tell pharmacists to stop discriminating again women. Link from NARAL PCA.

Don't let the far-right send women's rights back to the 1800s...

Tell pharmacy chains to stop discriminating against women!

In as many as 20 states, pharmacies can refuse to fill womens prescriptions for contraception, including the morning-after pill.

When a woman and her doctor decide that a prescription for contraception is in the woman's best interest, a third party has no right to override that decision. Pharmacies must ensure that patients get their doctor-prescribed medication without delay or inconvenience.

Join NARAL Pro-Choice America in telling our nations biggest pharmacies (Wal-Mart, CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreen's, and Eckerd's) not to stand between a woman and her physician.
