As Trial Continues Pharmacists Don't Have To Sell Plan B

Posted: Updated:

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - A federal judge says Washington pharmacists still don't have to sell the "morning-after pill" if they have moral objections.      

It's another court victory for opponents of emergency contraception, sold as "Plan B." s

Some pharmacists and drug store owners refuse to sell the pills, because they say the super-dose of birth control is too close to abortion.      

The state has tried to force those drug stores and pharmacists to sell Plan B anyway, saying that women have a right to get legally prescribed drugs.      

Druggists are challenging the rules on religious grounds and a federal judge said Friday that the rules will continue to be suspended while the trial proceeds.
