Pharmacists win fight, won’t be forced to sell ‘morning-after pills’
State attorney general won’t take issue to Ill. Supreme Court
MORRISON – A Morrison pharmacist said he felt “terrific” Tuesday after a legal victory upheld his right not to sell emergency contraception.
Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan said she won’t appeal a state appeals court ruling in favor of Luke VanderBleek and another Illinois pharmacist who objected to having to provide emergency contraception on religious grounds.
Madigan notified the Illinois Supreme Court of her decision last week, saying her office “decided not to pursue further review.” The Illinois appeals court ruled in September.
