Atlanta Woman Refused Emergency Contraception

The Super Christians are at it again. Yet another woman was once again refused emergency contraception, this time at an Atlanta Kroger. Kroger. Kroger. Kroger. What are we gonna do with you? NOT SHOP AT YOU that's what.

They'll be a NARAL-led press conference at the Capitol tomorrow with Dionne Vann, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Georgia and Carrie Baker, local resident who was refused Plan B® emergency contraception at Kroger. Press conference:
Friday, March 9 at 1:00 pm, Capital Plaza
(Washington Street side).
They (Vann and Baker) will announce the launch of a statewide “Emergency Contraception Education Campaign” and call on Kroger and other local pharmacies to stock EC and to ensure that women do not encounter delay or harassment at the pharmacy counter.

These women, and some Georgia Representatives who support a woman's right to choose (apparently there are at least two), will be there for this press conference. NARAL is reaching out to us as media. I appreciate that. Thus I'll sure try to get there. Would be nice to see some bloggers there. Male ones as well.

Do you know which Kroger it was?

FYI, Georgians for Choice is launching a customer-driven protest... info here.

I have an idea for a podcast about this...

Not sure which one. We'll likely find out tomorrow at presser. I'm in for any podcast on this matter of course! Let's do it.

I would come tomorrow if I didn't have to work. I'll keep you posted on the podcast idea.

We should all cut our Kroger Plus Cards in half and drop them off at the nearest store.

Seriously.......this sucks!
