Wal-Mart Must Stock Contraceptives in Massachusetts

It took an order from the State Board of Pharmacy for Wal-Mart to stop catering to religious wingnuts:

The unanimous decision by the Massachusetts Board of Pharmacy comes two weeks after three women sued Wal-Mart in state court for failing to carry the so called "morning after" pill in its Wal-Mart and Sam's Club stores in the state.

The women argue state policy requires pharmacies to provide all "commonly prescribed medicines."

[...]

Wal-Mart carries the pill in Illinois only, where it is required under state law. The company has said it "chooses not to carry many products for business reasons," but declined to elaborate.
Business reasons, righhht.

Surely Wal-mart, if you can stock Viagra you can stock on contraceptives?
