Tell Target to Fill Prescriptions

A pharmacist at a Target in Missouri recently refused to fill an emergency contraception prescription for a 26-year-old woman for "moral reasons." Here's Target's response to a three inquiries from Planned Parenthood:

"Like many other retailers, Target has a policy that ensures a guest's prescription for emergency contraception is filled, whether at Target or at a different pharmacy, in a timely and respectful manner. This policy meets the health care needs of our guests while respecting the diversity of our team members."

In the last week, Target has changed its response, removing "or at a different pharmacy," from its standard reply, according to Planned Parenthood. But Target has not changed its policy.

Join Planned Parenthood in telling Target to fill prescriptions without discrimination or delay!
