Woman in Asthma Attack Short $2, Denied Inhaler at Pharmacy

Posted October 15th, 2010 by phonon

Katherine O’Connor and her boyfriend were walking home Thursday when she had the asthma attack, but she did not have her inhaler with her. She went to a nearby CVS, hoping to get a refill on her inhaler prescription, but she was denied the refill because she did not have enough money to pay for the prescription. The medicine cost just over $21, and the couple was short $1.99. Brown begged the pharmacist to give his girlfriend the inhaler, as she was on the floor wheezing, but the pharmacist would not give in, he said. This is reminiscent of the TN fire dept. story. This is less about government and liberty and more about strict adherence to rules leading to total lack of compassion.
