Yet Another Reason To HATE WalMart

I recently sent a letter to WalMart(is the devil), asking them to compel their pharmacists to DO THEIR JOBS...This was the response I got:

Dear Valued Customer,(like I'd even step foot in one of those places!)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. (WTF?)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.

Can you believe that CRAP? Exactly who the fuck do they think they are? If you are against the use of alcohol, don't work in a liquor store. If you are against obesity, don't work in a donut shop. What next? Will they deny someone Valtrex because only whores have herpes? Your opinion is just that, it is not your right to intervene where you see fit. Find a job that suits your convictions...I think Bill Maher said it well, in last week's New Rules:

"And finally, New Rule: Pharmacists have to fill prescriptions.... more and more American pharmacists are refusing to fill prescriptions for birth control because of their personal moral objections. Hey, you know what would really teach us a lesson? If you took off your pretend doctor jacket and got another job.
Or maybe I'm wrong. Maybe cutting off the pill doesn't even go far enough. Yeah, it's high time activist drugstores stopped coddling sluts on every aisle. Let's not sell any more makeup either. A good woman doesn't paint herself. And no more deodorant. You should smell bad. Keep the boys from getting ideas. And no suntan lotion. I've seen what happens at the MTV Beach House, you whore. You want to avoid melanoma, buy a veil.
Why is this country becoming Utah?!....
Now, of course, I know the other side is saying, yes, but this is a moral issue. Yeah, but the problem is, not everyone gets their morals from the same book. You go by the book that says slavery is okay but sex is wrong until after marriage, at which point it becomes a blessed sacrament between a husband and the wife who is withholding it.
In conclusion, let me say to all the activist pharmacists out there, the ones who think sex is bad probably because sex with them always is. Fellas, a pharmacist is not a law-giver, not even a doctor. In the medical pecking order, you rank somewhere in between a chiropractor and a tree surgeon.
You don't answer to a law above the laws of men. You work for Sav-On. The doctors are the ones who make medical decisions because they went to medical school, whereas you were transferred from the counter where people drop off film."

Please join me in saying "ENOUGH"....
