Stormans v. Selecky: Amici Curiae Brief.
Aug. 17, 2012
The Partnership, along with a number of other interested parties, submitted the brief on this case to urge the court to recognize the importance of access to emergency contraception for all women, and its critical nature for rape and domestic violence survivors. The case centers on two rules enacted by the Washington State Board of Pharmacy that would have required pharmacies to dispense medications, including birth control and emergency contraception, regardless of individual pharmacists’ personal feelings. A federal court put a hold on these rules and blocks them from taking effect until constitutional issues are resolved.
