WI Court Upholds Reprimand of Pharmacist's Refusal to Dispense Contraception

The Capital Times: Pharmacist Loses Appeal on Refusing Contraceptive, by Anita Weier:

An appeals court today upheld a decision by the state Pharmacy Examining Board reprimanding and placing conditions on the license of a pharmacist who refused to fill or transfer a patient's prescription for an oral contraceptive.

The state's 3rd District Court of Appeals found the board was correct in 2005 when it ruled Neil Noesen had violated a professional standard of care by preventing a woman from obtaining her prescription elsewhere.
