Has Target caved to our demands yet? I am having withdrawals. It doesn't help that they are sending me massively well-designed holiday catalogs.
Off with you, boomer's a tickin'!

Maybe if it was in the news... But you know the politics of birth control these days.

Just give it up and have 15 children. The state will be there to take care of you (wink).

Can you just imagine? Ugggggggg

Nor did I.

I'm thinking that I may find a corporate address and try re-mailing it.

On a different forum this is being discussed- and someone there who wrote asking what was up got this response (the addressee is of no relation to me)

I got a response from Target:

Dear John Perry,

In our ongoing effort to provide great service to our guests, Target
consistently ensures that prescriptions for the emergency contraceptive
Plan B are filled. As an Equal Opportunity Employer, Title VII of the
Civil Rights Act of 1964 also requires us to accommodate our team
members' sincerely held religious beliefs.

In the rare event that a pharmacist's beliefs conflict with filling a
guest's prescription for the emergency contraceptive Plan B, our policy
requires our pharmacists to take responsibility for ensuring that the
guest's prescription is filled in a timely and respectful manner,
either by another Target pharmacist or a different pharmacy.

The emergency contraceptive Plan B is the only medication for which
this policy applies.

Under no circumstances can the pharmacist prevent the prescription from
being filled, make discourteous or judgmental remarks, or discuss his
or her religious beliefs with the guest.

Target abides by all state and local laws and, in the event that other
laws conflict with our policy, we follow the law.

We're surprised and disappointed by Planned Parenthood s negative
campaign. We've have been talking with Planned Parenthood to clarify
our policy and reinforce our commitment to ensuring that our guests'
prescriptions for the emergency contraceptive Plan B are filled. Our
policy is similar to that of many other retailers and follows the
recommendations of the American Pharmacists Association. That's why
it's unclear why Target is being singled out.

We're committed to meeting the needs of our female guests and will
continue to deliver upon that commitment.

they haven't even bothered to reply to the letter I sent. Have they replied to you?
Date:November 11th, 2005 09:03 pm (UTC)
Nope. To say that I am annoyed would be an understatement. Then again, I hold out in the name of hope: perhaps the silence means they are reconsidering their position?
