More shame in Minnesota

Americablog has been covering this story about how Target, a Minnesota company, is perfectly okay with its employees refusing to fill prescriptions for emergency contraception. See, in the eyes of Target, an employee's ability to pass judgment on a customer far outweighs the rights of people to have private lives.

When does this stop? Would it be okay for a cashier to refuse to sell a person condoms if that person did not have a wedding ring? You know, sex outside of marriage and all. And I know that Target sells back massagers that can be used for, um, other purposes. How about that?

Americablog's latest post is about how Target's CEO, Robert Ulrich, has donated a lot of money to Republicans, and almost nothing to Democrats. Pretty surprising, huh?

FYI - Companies/individuals have the right to refuse service to anyone.

Yeah, if Target or any other business started refusing to serve black people, or women, or people with disabilities, because they have the right to refuse service to anyone, then that would be totally cool with everybody.
