ACLU NM: Walgreens affirms birth control policy

San Francisco Chronicle: In a statement, Walgreens said its company policy is to fill all prescriptions, including birth control medications. “Having said that, we must recognize that there may exist pharmacists who object to filling certain prescriptions based on their religious, moral or ethical beliefs,” the company said. “To balance the needs of our pharmacists and our customers, Walgreens has developed appropriate policies and procedures for our pharmacies to assure that these prescriptions, for example, birth control, are handled as efficiently as other prescriptions without imposing any burden on the customer.”
