ABSTRACT
The article discusses the legal aspects of bringing a claim alleging sex discrimination in public accommodations based on a refusal to dispense prescription contraceptives in a pharmacy. It examines state public accommodations statutes that can be used by U.S. states for challenging such discriminatory practices. It recommends that state public accommodations lawsuits should ideally be brought solely against the pharmacy and not against the pharmacist who refuses to dispense a prescription contraceptive.
