Guaranteed Access to Prescriptions
Nevada law guarantees that women's birth-control prescriptions will be filled. A pharmacist may refuse to fill a prescription for professional reasons only. Professional reasons for refusing include questions concerning the legitimacy or medical appropriateness of any prescription presented, or reasonable belief that the filling of the prescription would be unlawful. Regulations specify that a pharmacist may not refuse to fill a prescription based on ethical, moral, or religious reasons.
