Woman 'humiliated' by Walgreens over drugs to end pregnancy

An Arizona mother said she was two months pregnant when she learned that her baby was not developing and the pregnancy would end in a miscarriage

- A valley woman says a pharmacist at a Walgreens in Peoria denied her medication to end her pregnancy on moral grounds after doctors told her that her unborn baby stopped developing, and that she would miscarry. For Arteaga to speak out publicly about this requires incredible strength, and while she says, "It was comforting to know I'm not the only one", I am furious that this pharmacist's actions forced Arteaga to speak out on behalf of women who have to deal with this. Her doctor gave her the prescription after she opted to use medication to terminate the pregnancy instead of a procedure. "I stood at the mercy of this pharmacist, explaining the situation in front of my 7-year-old, and five customers standing behind only to be denied because of his ethical beliefs", Arteaga wrote her post.

What happened in Arizona is a case study in what could go wrong, they said. "I can't be the only one who has gone thru this". "She helped me realize that my feelings were valid ... that this might be something that is happening to others and it's not OK".

"I think her personal facts, which are highly sympathetic, was that she wanted to make him understand she was not there for some frivolous reason", Klieman said Monday on "CBS This Morning".

"This is something I have zero control over", she posted on Facebook.

Mone continued that she left the Walgreens in tears, ashamed and humiliated.

Robert Sewell, a civil attorney with Davis Miles Law Firm says state laws protect that pharmacist's license.

She chose the latter but when she travelled to her local Walgreens in Peoria, 12 miles (20km) outside Phoenix, to have the prescription filled, the pharmacist refused to supply her with the medication.

Arteaga was able to fill her prescription at a different location later, and filed a complaint with the Arizona State Board of Pharmacy. "When she said she was, he refused to give her the Misoprostol, citing 'his ethical beliefs, 'she recalled in a detailed account on Facebook".

Fallon also said that he is one of the "good guys", and looking back on it, he would have done the interview differently. The 2016 segment involved Fallon messing up Trump's famous hair.


The statement also said that company was "looking into" the incident Arteaga described and that they reached out to her "and apologized for how the situation was handled". "We are looking into the matter to ensure that our patients' needs are handled properly". He told her to come back another time or to go to another pharmacy. The drugstore chain said in a statement that the employee had acted within company guidelines and Arizona law. She said she opposed Arizona's "right to refuse" law when it passed in 2012, and she's been trying to repeal it since.

Arizona is one of six U.S. states with a "conscience clause" law that allows health care providers to refrain from assisting in abortion, abortion medication or emergency contraception.

Six states - including Arizona - explicitly permit pharmacies or pharmacists to refuse to provide medication because of religious or moral objections, according to the National Women's Law Center, a nonprofit and advocacy group.

On Twitter, a user asked Walgreens Saturday: "What is your policy regarding dispensing prescribed medication?"

"This post isn't something I generally do, but last night I experienced something no women should ever have to go thru especially under these circumstances or any other circumstances". According to her, Walgreens didn't reach out to her. Arteaga said she reached out to them.
