Wal-Mart is evil

A female friend emailed Wal-Mart expressing concern about the recent rash of pharmacists refusing to fill birth control prescriptions. Here is Wal-Mart's reply (emphasis mine):

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for contacting us at Walmart.com regarding women?s prescriptions for birth control. Your comments and concerns are very important to us as we strive to meet your needs.

Wal-Mart does not carry emergency contraceptives. Our pharmacists may decline to fill a prescription based on personal convictions. However, they must find another pharmacist, either at Wal-Mart or another pharmacy, who can assist you by filling your prescription.

Again, we thank you for your comments regarding this issue.


Customer Service at Walmart.com
