Indiana U at Bloomington FMLA Thanks Local Doctors that Prescribe EC

To show appreciation for feminist doctors, the INDIANA UNIVERSITY AT BLOOMINGTON FMLA made Thank You cards for all the doctors that prescribe emergency contraception (EC) in their community. In many states across the country doctors and pharmacists are allowed to “opt out” of prescribing and dispensing EC if they choose, making access difficult and even impossible for many women. Wal-Mart, increasingly the only pharmacy in rural areas, does not dispense EC as a matter of corporate policy Visit the ECOTC campaign website for more information, to sign the petition of support, and for action ideas.
