So hip...yet evil

In other Plan B related news, Target, in case you don't know, is also allowing their pharmacists not to dispense Plan B if it "goes against their conscience". Here's a quote from their publicist:
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.
What's the underlying rational behind the last sentence there? Don't you worry. As long as you're not a loose woman you'll get your drugs.

Oh, Tar-zhay. Why must you also be evil? Now where will I go to find my cheap and cheeky apparel and deceptively well-designed bargain houseware?
