Wal-Mart Decides to Carry Morning-After Abortion Pill in Stores

(Bentonville, Arkansas) Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. has announced its stores will stock the Morning-after Abortion Pill (MAP) in all of its pharmacies throughout the U.S. beginning March 20. American Decency Association president Bill Johnson says this decision is only the latest in a series of family-unfriendly moves by the world’s largest retailer.

Johnson says, “We have seen them in recent months making decisions like advertising on Desperate Housewives.” He added, “Now, with this move as well, this is truly significant. Many of us have desired to be able to look at Wal-Mart as a shopping alternative, a place that is family friendly. One person we talked with recently said that they’re lately not family friendly, they’re consumer friendly.”

Johnson believes pro-family customers need to let the corporate giant know how they feel, as they have in the past.

“A couple of years ago, when people would walk into their Wal-Mart, right in the doorway, there would be the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition facing them,” Johnson notes. “We began to urge people to make telephone calls to Wal-Mart, and within a week’s period of time, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition was at least taken down from the central place and tucked back into the magazine racks, which we considered a very significant victory.”

Massachusetts and Illinois had previously ordered Wal-Mart stores in those states to stock MAP. Now, effective March 20, all of Wal-Mart’s more than 3,700 pharmacies nationwide will carry the abortifacient drug also known as “Plan B.”
