Contraception doesn’t belong behind the counter; it belongs over-the-counter. A woman’s access shouldn’t hinge on whether she has health insurance, whether she has a doctor she can call at 5 a.m., or how her neighbors feel about the culture of life. Women should be able to order stacks of the stuff off of the internet to keep in their medicine cabinets, and pharmacists should be free to keep their drugstores clear of anything they find morally questionable. Pharmacy owners should be equally free to work out their own individual policies — and employ workers who agree to abide by them.
