Drug Wars


In a debate over at Legal Affairs, Cato's David Boaz and Judy Waxman of the National Women's Law Center face off over whether pharmacists may refuse to fill birth control or morning-after pill prescriptions.

Kerry Howley noted earlier this month that this whole discussion would be deliciously moot if the FDA would get around to following its own expert panel's advice and approve emergency contraception for over the counter sales—and maybe mainstream pro-lifers have a reason to prefer it that way: Will Saletan at Slate observes that non-loony groups are mostly keeping their distance from this one.
