Ah, Gee, That's Big of Ya, Walmart

Walmart has reversed its original psycho right wing position on Plan B, and starting March 20, will have it available in its pharmacies. In some areas, thanks to Walmart's kill small downtowns plan, the Walmart pharmacy is the only one available. So in theory women in those areas should be able to access this legal drug almost as easily as they can get crystal meth.

Oh yeah, there is one slight hook. The company will continue what it calls its conscientious objection policy (don't you just love how the psycho right works so hard to equate Plan B with abortion -- check your science morons) (oops, wait, oh yeah, science / psycho right. Never mind). This policy, except in 2 states that outlaw it at this point, allows Walmart pharmacists who don't want to dispense it to refer customers to another pharmacy. And where there isn't another pharmacy?

Sorry sisters, just think of it as your own personal trip back in time to that simpler time when women could be made to stay pregnant.

[for the psycho right wingers who want to open up their minds a bit to science, here's how Plan B works. It's a high dose of birth control pill hormones. It doesn't abort anything. It just blocks fertilization. But don't worry, we know you folks don't care to have facts get in the way of a good rant.]

Why don't they just stop selling condoms while they are at it.

Don't think that there aren't those who would love to see that. Unfortunately, they don't seem to be the same people who are out there trying to improve the lives of America's children.
