Re:Too bad it's WalMart

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.


Let's assume that this is a good defense against a censorship charge (and I don't believe that it is): you're assuming that there's another store to go to, or that the customer has Internet access. This doesn't hold for a lot of towns where Wal-Mart dominates.


Personally, I believe these so-called emergency contraceptives are on shaky ground.


I'm not going to get into the abortion debate, except to say that I vigorously disagree with your entire line of reasoning.
