Woman says Walgreens pharmacist refused to fill prescription to end her pregnancy

Woman says Walgreens pharmacist refused to fill prescription to end her pregnancy Woman says Walgreens pharmacist refused to fill prescription to end her pregnancy

Arteaga's doctor gave two options to end the pregnancy: a dilation and curettage procedure, which involves a doctor scraping the tissue out, or a prescription medication that would terminate the pregnancy, according to her post.

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.

When Nicole Arteaga discovered she had lost her baby in a miscarriage, she wanted to put the experience behind her as quickly as possible. Many commenters expressed outrage that the pharmacist interfered in a deeply personal healthcare decision made by Arteaga and her doctor.

"I am unsure where Walgreens draws the lines with their pharmacist but does this mean he denies women the right to birth control and morning after pill, and what's the stance with fertility drugs?"

When Ms Arteaga went to pick up the drug at a Walgreens store in Arizona, US, she said the pharmacist refused to give it to her because of his "ethical" beliefs. "I applaud this pharmacist and am glad Walgreens protects his conscience rights and wish more pharmacists would have the courage to stand for their convictions, especially if a life is at risk". "I don't have control over my body not being able to support having a healthy baby. He has no idea what it's like to want nothing more than to carry a child to full term and be unable to do so".

Arteaga described the anguish she felt over Hreniuc's refusal during an already hard time, telling CNN that while Hreniuc was "telling [her] no", "all I could feel was helplessness". "I can't help. what has happened inside of me". How is this okay? "I can't be the only one who has gone thru this".

Arteaga said she spoke to a store manager "who did not seem happy about what had happened" and had also contacted Walgreens corporate office.

Walgreens said the pharmacist's actions weren't exactly wrong, according to WTSP 10 News.

For the traditionalists who criticized her pregnancy, she also had an updated news flash for them as well. It turns out that moment was at least partially for show, because the couple was already married.

The same goes in North Carolina, although the board goes on to say that pharmacist would be required to send the prescription elsewhere to get it filled 'in a timely manner'.

It allows employees of pharmacies or hospitals, or health professionals who object to abortions, emergency contraception or devices to end a pregnancy, not to provide services or products that allow abortions to occur.

Walgreens did not immediately respond to phone calls from NPR, but in a statement posted on its website on Monday, the company announced that it was looking into the incident, and that its representatives had reached out to Arteaga. "We are looking into the matter to ensure that our patients" needs are handled properly'.

"They're thanking me for being a voice and standing up, and that is so empowering", she said.

She chose the latter but when she travelled to her local Walgreens in Peoria, 12 miles (20km) outside Phoenix, to have the prescription filled, the pharmacist refused to supply her with the medication. The manager said she would look into it but never got back to her, Arteaga said.

While the moral objection clause has caused controversy, it also appears to be permitted under state laws in Arizona.

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

"Last night I experienced something no woman should ever have to go thru [sic]", posted Arteaga, a teacher.
