"Plan B Must-Sell" Heads for SCOTUS

This case will get there, sooner or later; in Morrissey's opinion, it will be sooner.

Pharmacists are obliged to dispense the Plan B pill, even if they are personally opposed to the “morning after” contraceptive on religious grounds, a federal appeals court ruled Wednesday.

In a case that could affect policy across the western U.S., a supermarket pharmacy owner in Olympia, Wash., failed in a bid to block 2007 regulations that required all Washington pharmacies to stock and dispense the pills.

This is NOT like the Wisconsin case where a Walgreen's pharmacist refused to dispense. This involves refusal to purchase/stock/dispense--a big difference.
