Ill. Court: Pharmacies Not Required to Sell Morning-After Pill

Declares rule unconstitutional under state laws


Pharmacies do not have to distribute emergency contraception due to Illinois' Conscience Act, a state appeals court ruled.

Luke Vander Bleek and Glenn Kosirog filed for relief from an administrative rule that requires pharmacists like them to dispense the morning-after pill.

The pharmacists were joined by Fitzgerald Pharmacy, Eggelston Pharmacy and Kosirog Rexall Pharmacy.
