Walgreens pharmacist denies woman miscarriage medication, citing ethical beliefs

Mone, who was roughly two months pregnant, explained that during a doctor's appointment on Tuesday she learned that her unborn baby had stopped developing.

With her 7-year-old son in tow, she had gone to pick up dinner, choose a movie and then pick up her prescription, the Arizona Central reported. Instead, the pharmacist forwarded her prescription to another Walgreens location that filled it for her.

Nicole Arteaga dropped off her prescription for Misoprostol at Walgreens but when she went to pick it up on Thursday, the pharmacist wouldn't give it to her because it was against his beliefs.

"I get it we all have our beliefs", Arteaga wrote in her Facebook post, which also included a photo of the pharmacist's business card.

Arteaga thought that the situation was even more hard because she brought her son with her who didn't fully understand what was happening. "This is something I have zero control over", wrote Arteaga in a Facebook post.

"He has no idea what its like to want nothing more than to carry a child to full term and be unable to do so", she wrote.

Arteaga said she left Walgreens in tears.

"I share this story because I wish no other women have to go through something like this at time when you are vulnerable and already suffering".

Mone said that this is not what happened in her case citing that the pharmacist could have referred her to the lady standing next to him but he did not do this. How is this okay?

"Nobody should have to shop around to different pharmacies to find someone who will serve them", said state Senate Minority Leader Katie Hobbs.

A Walgreens representative said they reached out to Arteaga to apologize but she told The Arizona Republic she only heard from the Peoria store manager after she complained.

According to Walgreens and state law, the pharmacist was within his rights to do this. She left in tears without her medication.

She was prescribed medication but says she was turned away by a Peoria pharmacist due to his personal beliefs.

‘Jersey Shore’ star’s ex-girlfriend arrested in Vegas fight
Now People confirms that Harley has been charged with domestic battery after an alleged fight with Ortiz-Magro in Las Vegas. Meanwhile, the Jersey Shore Family Vacation cast teased that on the second season there is going to be even more drama.

Walgreens said it would be providing additional training to all of its pharmacists on how to appropriately handle such situations.

In its statement, the drugstore chain said pharmacists who object to a medication are nonetheless "required to refer the prescription to another pharmacist or manager on duty to meet the patient's needs in a timely manner", and that it was "looking into the matter".

In a statement quoted by CNN, Walgreens said they were investigating the incident "to ensure our patients' needs are handled properly".

But the pharmacist still said no, she said.

Arizona is one of six states that have passed laws allowing pharmacists to deny filling emergency contraception drug prescriptions if it conflicts with their religious beliefs or values.

On Twitter, a user asked Walgreens Saturday: "What is your policy regarding dispensing prescribed medication?"

This post isn't something I generally do, but last night I experienced something no women should ever have to go thru.

Iran fans try to disturb Portugal team before key match
There's a big incentive in topping the group because the winners will face Uruguay rather than Russian Federation in the last 16. Spain and Portugal remain favourites to qualify but with both only a point above Iran , nothing is settled yet.

"When providers are able to use their religious and moral beliefs to make decisions about health care, they are using those beliefs to determine what care people need".
