Praise in Chile for pharmacies that refuse to sell morning-after pill
Facebook Twitter Google+ Pinterest Addthis

.- The organization “Muevete Chile has called on Chileans to support drug stores and pharmacies that have decided not to distribute the government promoted morning-after pill, known in the country as “Post Day.”

Muevete Chile explained that in response to the rejection by national chains to provide the morning-after pill, “the government has imported 25,000 doses of the same pill known as ‘Post Day’ from Colombia.”

The government has sought to force pharmacies to purchase the pills, but “none have been interested in buying them,” the organization reports.  “If they force pharmacies to market the pill, it would not only be an attack against life, but also against freedom.  The only option left will be for them to force us to buy it,” the group said.

Muevete Chile also pointed out that the manufacturers of “Post Day” acknowledge on their website that the pill has an anti-implantation effect.  The pill “makes the membrane of the uterus thinner in such a way that the fertilized ovum cannot adhere to the uterus,” the website indicates.
