MA Wal-Mart Required to Stock Emergency Contraception

Earlier this month, I posted on a lawsuit filed by 3 Massachusetts women against Wal-Mart for the retail giant's refusal to stock the Plan B emergency contraceptive. The state's Board of Registration in Pharmacy voted yesterday to require Wal-Mart to stock the drug. I was not able to find a statement on the Board's website, but the Boston Globe covers the story here. It mentions that Wal-Mart plans to review its policy of refusal to carry Plan B nationwide. The Kaiser Network provides a summary of the ruling and its implications.
