Re:Too bad it's WalMart

by deciding not to carry product because of message (instead of market demand), they are engaging in censorship.
It's not censorship, because anyone can go down the street to another record store, or go online and order what Wal-Mart doesn't sell.

I'm not saying that Wal-Mart should be forced to carry these drugs; they are, after all, a private enterprise. On the other hand, if they're not willing to provide these drugs, then someone else (such as a competitor, or Planned Parenthood) has to step in.
Nobody has to step in. Personally, I believe these so-called emergency contraceptives are on shaky ground. If the sperm has already fertilized the egg, it is a living human being, and should not be aborted unless the life of the mother is danger. If the conception hasn't taken place yet, and this merely prevents it from happening, that would be acceptable to me. However, how can one know whether or not it's happened? Therefore, I believe these pills should be banned.
