She used to work part-time for Target in St. Charles. But she's anti-abortion, so she refused to dispense or offer referrals for Plan B, a morning-after contraceptive.
No surprise that Williams lost her job; that's what happens when you refuse to follow your employer's orders. But Williams and her anti-abortion peers think they're above the rules. This week they plan to flood Jefferson City with hype aimed at passing a bill that would give pharmacists "protection" from mean bosses who want them to fill prescriptions.
The anti-abortionists are gloating. Williams told the Post-Dispatch that she "just can't be a link in the chain" of abortion, because "for me, life begins with two cells."
She's complaining to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in Missouri. She says Target isn't to blame; it's that evil Planned Parenthood, Williams claims, because PP pushed pharmacies to fill prescriptions for emergency contraceptives.
In other words, Target fired Williams because she admits to not doing her job. Wanna hear a funny? Williams told the Post-Dispatch:
“I’m not in judgment of anyone. I want my right not to fill something, much as they have their right to get Plan B filled.”
