Minnesota pharmacist claims ‘religious beliefs’ and denies service

0

It’s not just a recent trend. This case occurred in 2019 and according to FOX 9 the resulting lawsuit went to trial last Monday. The lawsuit says two different pharmacies refused to fill this woman’s prescription for the “morning after pill” after she said a condom broke during sex.

The woman, Andrea Anderson of McGregor, Minnesota, a mother of five, presented her prescription for the emergency drug to McGregor’s only pharmacy, Thrifty White.

Wanting to make sure that this pharmacy stocked this medicine, she called the pharmacy and spoke to the pharmacist. Apparently, the pharmacist, George Badeaux told Anderson that he was unable to fill his prescription for the “morning after pill” because of his “beliefs”.

The lawsuit also claims that Badeaux not only refused to fill Anderson’s prescription, but also found it difficult to get it filled at 2 other pharmacies, CVS in Aitkin and Walgreens in Brainerd.

According to the lawsuit, Thrifty White in McGregor tried to prevent Anderson “from obtaining the care of others by putting delays and obstacles in his way, by not offering him a reasonable alternative and, in one case, by apparently misleading about where she could get care.”

Just a few weeks ago there was a story about a couple from Minnesota vacationing in Wisconsin. After arriving in Wisconsin, the woman realized she hadn’t packed her contraceptive.

She and her boyfriend stopped at a Walgreens to pick up a few items, including condoms. The store clerk phoned almost every item but refused to sell him the condoms due to his “religious beliefs”.

Stay tuned, after the Supreme Court overturns Roe vs Wade, we’ll likely see more and more cases like these.
