Walgreens pharmacist refuses med on moral grounds

Nicole Arteaga wanted nothing more than to be a mother again.

But doctors gave the 35-year-old mother heartbreaking news during her 10-week pregnancy checkup.

The baby's development had stopped. There was no heartbeat. The pregnancy would end with a miscarriage — a pain Arteaga has faced before.

Grieving, Arteaga went to her local Walgreens in Peoria, Ariz. on Thursday to pick up medication prescribed by a doctor to manage her health and the miscarriage by terminating the pregnancy.

Instead, Arteaga was turned away, without the medicine she needed.

TVNL Comment: Outrageous.  Simply outrageous that this pharmacist is permitted to reject a doctor's prescription based on a belief in some gobbledygook written more than two thousand years ago. Outrageous.
