February 16, 2006
HARTFORD, Conn. --State Comptroller Nancy Wyman has asked Wal-Mart to stock emergency contraception pills in its 20 Connecticut pharmacies.
The state board that oversees pharmacies in Massachusetts ruled this week that Wal-Marts there must stock the so-called "morning after pill." Illinois Wal-Marts also carry emergency contraception because state law requires it, but Wal-Marts in other states do not.
Wal-Mart spokesman Dan Fogleman said Thursday that the company is reviewing its national policy on emergency contraception, also known as Plan B.
"Women's health is a priority for Wal-Mart," Fogleman said. "There's a lot of broader considerations, but it's something we're giving a lot of thought to."
