An Arizona woman is putting a public spotlight on a Walgreen's pharmacist who she says wouldn't give her a prescription to end her pregnancy. She says the pharmacist refused to fill the prescription with other customers within earshot and she left the location in tears with her 7-year-old child by her side.
"[He] knows nothing of my struggles but feels it is his right to deny medication prescribed to me by my doctor", she continued. "We are looking into the matter to ensure that our patients" needs are handled properly'.
"I had a hard time getting to sleep with all these thoughts going through my mind about how a person could control or have control over something that I needed for my well being", she told Buzzfeed News.
After it went viral, however, Walgreens issued a statement that said Hreniuc acted within the company guidelines. "And, looking back at those comments, it's nice to know that people understand the situation and what I'm going through", Arteaga said.
"This post isn't something I generally do, but last night I experienced something no women should ever have to go thru especially under these circumstances", she wrote on Friday.
The company told the Associated Press today that the pharmacist in question was the only one on duty at the time, so he called another location to serve the patient.

"Our policy allows pharmacists to step away from filling a prescription for which they have a moral objection", the tweet read.
Though the stores' employees are allowed to opt out of fulfilling prescriptions that they have a moral objection to, they are required to hand the order off to someone else to fill, the company said in a statement obtained by HuffPost.
Under state law, Arizona pharmacies must require employees to notify them of drugs they would decline to fill because of "sincerely held religious beliefs".
"I didn't want to need those pills", Arteaga, 35, told AZ Central. "I couldn't control what my body was doing, and now here I am trying to make this decision of what I'm going to do, and this person was taking that away from me, and making that choice for me".
Ms. Arteaga described her response in the post, which has been shared more than 30,000 times.
As of Saturday night, the post was shared nearly 15,000 times, and Nicole Arteaga said she doesn't want any other woman to go through what she went through.
In some U.S. states, it's actually legal for pharmacists to refuse to fill prescriptions.
Walgreens' policy lines up with an Arizona state law that similarly allows a pharmacy, hospital or health professional not to participate in providing abortion medication, emergency contraception or any medication or device that would prevent fertilization. They do not have to if they chose not to,"said Allison Benz, executive director of the Texas State Board of Pharmacy, which licenses the state's pharmacies and their staff, and tracks whether they are in compliance with the law". Pharmacists aren't legally obligated to refer customers to another pharmacy.
