Preven and Walmart

Is the story about Preven and the Planned Parenthood boycott of Walmart true — or is it an urban legend or hoax?

Walmart and Preven

Take a minute to tell Walmart thank you.
Subject: WALMART IS FOR LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character,
give him power." Abraham Lincoln

For those of you that have not heard, Planned Parenthood is planning a boycott of
Walmart because Walmart will not sell Preven. Preven is being called the "day
after" contraceptive. It is not a contraceptive. The egg will have already been
fertilized. This is an abortion device and Walmart refuses to sell it. Planned Parenthood
is asking all women and the men who agree with a woman's right to choose (to Kill)
to boycott Walmart and to write them letting them know why they are being boycotted.

Walmart officials gave an e-mail address for us to write to let them know we are
glad they are standing for LIFE. The address is:

letters@wal-mart.com

In the subject line write: Preven

Please forward this to everyone and let's let them know that the majority still supports
right to life. Thanks. We really need to support businesses that take a moral stand
on an issue.

Editors Note:
"In May 1999, Wal-Mart announced its pharmacies
would not be selling the emergency contraceptive Preven. At that time Planned Parenthood
did indeed engage in a bit of sabre-rattling, threatening a boycott of the retailer
if that decision wasn’t reversed. That boycott, however, does not appear to have
materialized. The angry talk quickly dissipated, but not so quickly that someone
on the other side of the fight didn’t decide to issue his own call to arms, hence
the current e-mail asking folks to show support for Wal-Mart against a boycott that
never was."
