Yay.

Yahoo: Women Sue Wal-Mart Over Contraception:

BOSTON - Backed by abortion rights groups, three Massachusetts women sued Wal-Mart on Wednesday, accusing the retail giant of violating a state regulation by failing to stock emergency contraception pills in its pharmacies...

...The plaintiffs argued that state policy requires pharmacies to provide all "commonly prescribed medicines."

It's stupid to have to do it this way, but if it's the only way to make sure people can get access to emergency contraception, then it has to be done.

Remember: the groups that are opposing the morning-after pill are by and large the same people opposed to ANY contraception at all. This is not an issue on which a single inch of ground should be given.
