Medication Denial

An Arizona woman says a pharmacist at a Walgreen denied her medication.

An Arizona woman says a pharmacist at a Peoria Walgreens denied her medication to end her pregnancy on moral grounds, after doctors told her that her unborn baby stopped developing and that she would miscarry. Nicole Arteaga says she was humiliated after a pharmacist at Walgreens refused to fill a prescription to end her pregnancy- a pregnancy she wanted, but needed to be terminated. Walgreens says they do allow pharmacists to step away from dispensing certain drugs they have a moral issue with, but is required to refer the prescription to another manager or pharmacist on duty. Arteaga says that was not done. The Arizona State Board of Pharmacy announced Monday that they will investigate.
