Oral Arguments Available for Illinois Emergency Contraception Refusal Case

March 20, 2008

A case disputing pharmacists’ obligations to dispense legal prescriptions (specifically, emergency contraception) was argued before the Illinois Supreme Court, stemming from the state Governor’s 2005 emergency rule requiring that pharmacies fill these valid prescriptions. Unfortunately, a transcript of the arguments before the Court this week is not available, but audio and video is provided at this site – scroll down to Morr-Fitz v. Blagojevich.

PS-There is some discussion on the case at the WSJ Health Blog. Also, if you’re in Illinois and need EC, you probably don’t want to go to Fitzgerald Pharmacy, Kosirogg Rexall Pharmacy, or Eggleston Pharmacy, plaintiffs in the case.

    “Also, if you’re in Illinois and need EC, you probably don’t want to go to…”

    No one “needs” so called emergency contraception. It is not a need, it is a want.
