Wal-Mart forced to stock morning after pill in MA

CNN (via Dvorak Uncensored):

BOSTON, Massachusetts (AP) — The state pharmacy board ordered Wal-Mart on Tuesday to stock emergency contraception pills at its stores in Massachusetts.

Massachusetts becomes the second state to require the world’s largest retailer to carry the morning-after pill.

A Wal-Mart spokesman said the company would comply with the directive by the Massachusetts Board of Pharmacy and is reviewing its nationwide policy on the drug.

“Clearly women’s health is a high priority for Wal-Mart,” spokesman Dan Fogleman said. “We are actively thinking through the issue.”

I love the non-statement. “We are actively thinking through the issue”. Don’t think too hard there guys.
