Huge New Target Opens - We Won’t Be Shopping

The new Target store is open, and it seems everyone is excited about shopping there. It’s undoubtedly good news for the neighborhood, and good news for the District, but unfortunately it’s not good news for Hedda and I. We won’t be shopping there.

See, we’ve been personally boycotting Target for several years, since learning that they tolerate pharmacists who refuse to fill prescriptions for the morning-after pill. It’s a hard boycott for us, because we both really like the store, their merchandise, and their prices. But as long as Target values the personal and arbitrary religious beliefs of an employee more than the professional medical opinion of a board-certified physician, then they won’t see a dime from us.
