Wal-Mart, Massachusetts and Whore Pills

Three women are suing Wal-Mart over the store’s refusal to stock morning-after pills (or as Jimmy Fallon on SNL once called them, “whore pills”). A court decision on this issue might not be a case of judicial activism. The ridiculous policy that a private company must stock whore pills may be required by a state regulation requiring stores to stock “commonly prescribed medicines”.

The courts might not be to blame if the women can force Wal-Mart to sell them whore pills. Blame the elected officials in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts who drafted the ambiguous regulation. If any lawmaking body classified the whore pills as medicine in the past, the court would be bound to rule in favor of the women.

Massachusetts: Whore pills aplenty.
