Keeping the Gene Pool Clean

During a brief AIM conversation with Walking Tort last night I mentioned the story about the Massachusetts pharmacy board requiring Wal-Mart to sell the morning-after pill.

Now, of course, given my conservative leanings and propensity of support for a free market, you might imagine this action by Massachusetts did not sit well with me.

And you would have been right . . . at first.

But then I started to think, and I told Walking Tort: Maybe Massachusetts is ahead of the curve.

Sure . . . what greater service to society can Massachusetts perform than requiring Wal-Mart to stock the morning-after pill?

Apparently, 3 women -- with the backing of pro-abortion groups -- complained to the state pharmacy board about Wal-Mart's refusal to sell the drug.

Because, I guess, they can't manage to walk across the street to Walgreen's or CVS.

. . . then again, I imagine those stores probably have a "no shirt, no shoes, no service" policy.

And Lord knows what a problem that can be when you wake up with a massive hangover, on the floor of some strange trailer, and with the sneaking suspicion you'd had unprotected sex with at least one unknown man the night before.

This is America! And a woman ought to be able to buy her Liggett cigarettes, a morning 6-pack, her feminine products, a new bathing suit and flip-flops to wear while mowing the grass, and the morning-after pill all in one place damn it!

And besides -- I ask you -- who needs the morning-after pill more than a woman who must rely upon Wal-Mart to provide it???

So I say "thank you" to Massachusetts for being ever-vigilant in the cleansing of our gene pool.

It is the revival of eugenics at its best . . .

And, of course, I am being sarcastic.
