Arizona pharmacist recommends lying to women

Don’t know if anyone caught this (I’m still trying to catch up)…
K-mart pharmacist Dan Gransinger recently wrote a letter to the editor to the Arizona Republic, recommending that other pharmacists who have a problem dispensing emergency contraception simply lie to their female customers:
The pharmacist should just tell the patient that he is out of the medication and can order it, but it will take a week to get here. The patient will be forced to go to another pharmacy because she has to take these medicines within 72 hours for them to be effective. Problem solved.
Yes, he actually wrote this. You have to love how fucking nonchalant he is about lying. As if it’s no big deal…not to mention illegal.
NARAL Pro-Choice Arizona is calling for his removal from K-mart.

    I would think that anyone (not just pro-choicers) would be upset and concerned about having a medical professional who lies in the course of their duties as a matter of policy. They should go after K-mart about this.
