Seven U.S. pharmacies have decided to refuse to sell birth control to their customers. Saying that "birth control compromises faith," these pharmacies have gotten around the legalities of refusing to fill birth control prescriptions by becoming officially certified by the anti-choice group Pharmacists for Life International.

The new store policy for these pharmacies also extends to over-the-counter birth control of any kind such as condoms and spermicides. Several of these pharmacies are in rural and heavily religious areas, forcing those who are in need of birth control to drive eighty miles or more to do it.
