In August 2013, Walgreens fired a pharmacist who had worked for 6 years at a Jamestown, Tennessee Walgreen Store.
The reason? Because he refused to dispense abortifacients on the basis of his personal belief that he would be assisting in the death of a human being. For 6 years, Walgreens had allowed Dr. Hall to ask another pharmacist to dispense any such drugs. However, that suddenly changed. When asked what he would do if he was told to distribute these abortion causing drugs, he replied that he would continue to ask another pharmacist to handle it. He was promptly fired.
We believe it is an outrage that Walgreens has fired this man for his deeply held religious and personal beliefs.
We are calling for Dr. Hall to be re-instated and for an apology to be issued to him immediately.
If he is not reinstated, we are calling for a national boycott of Walgreens stores.
If you want to stand with Dr. Philip Hall, please use this petition to send an email straight to Walgreen’s CEO Gregory D. Wasson.
