Wall of Wankers

In response to this:

Some pharmacists across the country are refusing to fill prescriptions for birth control and morning-after pills, saying that dispensing the medications violates their personal moral or religious beliefs.

The trend has opened a new front in the nation's battle over reproductive rights, sparking an intense debate over the competing rights of pharmacists to refuse to participate in something they consider repugnant and a woman's right to get medications her doctor has prescribed. It has also triggered pitched political battles in statehouses across the nation as politicians seek to pass laws either to protect pharmacists from being penalized -- or force them to carry out their duties.

Please send me the names and place of business and business numbers of pharmacists who refuse to prescribe such things as birth control.

They have rights, and so do we.

...just to add -- not all of the country is like where I live. I think there are 15 pharmacies and who knows how many pharmacists within a 10 block radius of where I live. Genuine competition exists in my area, but not for everyone.
