Walgreens: Prioritizing Dogma Over Healthcare

After a Walgreens pharmacy in Albuquerque, NM refused to fill a young woman’s prescription for birth control, the ACLU of New Mexico and the Southwest Women’s Law Center filed complaints with the New Mexico Human Rights Bureau, alleging that the refusal was a form of sex discrimination.

In a statement, Walgreens said that their policy is to allow pharmacists and other employees to “step away from a transaction to which they may have a moral objection, and requires the pharmacist or other employee to refer the transaction to another employee or manager on duty to complete the customer’s request.” In this case, the pharmacist who objected to filling the prescription for birth control told the woman, a minor, to go to a different pharmacy to fill the prescription.
