A federal judge in Tacoma rules that pharmacies in Washington State can't be forced to stock and sell "plan b" contraceptives. The ruling by District Judge Ronald Leighton says the rules, which require the sale of such drugs even if storeowners or pharmacists believe it's a violation of their religious beliefs, are unconstitutional. Leighton has imposed an immediate injunction against the forced sale of the emergency contraceptives. The ruling is likely to be appealed.
