Illinois Sens. Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth are putting pressure on Walgreens Boots Alliance to revise a policy they say allows Walgreens employees to refuse to sell contraceptives to customers based on workers' religious or moral beliefs.

The two lawmakers sent a letter to Walgreens CEO Roz Brewer yesterday, inquiring about the policy and asking for a meeting.

 

The letter follows reports that customers have been denied contraceptives at Walgreens locations, including a recent incident in Wisconsin.
