(Washington, DC)  --  The U.S. Supreme Court is declining to consider a challenge to Washington State rules regarding contraceptives.  The challenge was made by the owners of Ralph's Thriftway pharmacy in Olympia, who, for religious reasons, don't want to sell emergency contraceptives.  The Supreme Court ruled yesterday that Washington pharmacists can't cite religious objections and refuse to dispense emergency contraception.  In 2007, Washington's State Board of Pharmacy adopted the rule requiring pharmacists to dispense emergency contraceptives.
