Mum refused the morning after pill because it was a Sunday

What the...?

A mum was refused the morning after pill after she called up her local pharmacy on a Sunday.

The woman said that the person on the phone cited "personal reasons" for her refusal.

She told Metro that the person on the phone said that she could wait until the next day to collect the pill, or else she could drive to another pharmacy which was ten miles away.

The mother told the publication: "I rang up from my car before going in to check that it was ready and the woman who answered told me that she will not dispense this type of product for 'personal reasons'."

"Honestly, it was the world’s largest eye roll. I can handle this, I’m not embarrassed. I’m old and stroppy enough to make a fuss, but what if I was a teenager?"

She added: "I’m a mum in my 40s, I have very little shame left, but there will be girls having the same experience who have nothing like the resources I do."

She added that the pharmacy is right beside an area which is inhabited by students and it is worrying that they may not be able to access such services if needed because of a pharmacist's personal issues.
