via Un poeta loco : University Policy Allows Doctors at Student Health Center to Refuse Morning-After Pill

So, when I read today in the SMU Daily Campus that the University allows the doctors it employs at the student health center to refuse to prescribe birth control pills—including the morning-after pill—to students, I wasn’t that surprised.

When I read, however, that a University doctor had cited religious objection as a reason for refusing the pill to a rape victim, the incredulity started to sink on

fixed the link!
