Walgreens Fires Illinois Pharmacists For Refusing to Fill Morning After Pill Prescriptions

Four pharmacists refused to fill prescriptions for EC “because the drug, which can sometimes cause an abortion, violates their moral and religious beliefs”.

Several pharmacists have filed lawsuits to overturn it.

John Menges said he was removed from his position because his pro-life beliefs compel him not to fill prescriptions for the Plan B drugs.

Ed Martin, an attorney for the pharmacists affiliated with Americans United for Life, which is helping them with the lawsuit, said the latest action is “disturbing.” He said they would consider filing a lawsuit against Walgreens if the company didn’t reconsider.
