Kansas Organizations Sign Nationwide Petition Regarding Access to Condoms in CVS Stores

July 13, 2009

The Kansas City Star on Sunday examined a national petition -- signed recently by several local organizations -- requesting that CVS Caremark unlock condoms in all of its CVS pharmacy stores. "The petition, sponsored by the labor coalition Change to Win, said CVS stores tended to lock up condoms, especially in low-income neighborhoods with high numbers of minorities," the Star reports. CVS has said the practice is "a defense against shoplifters in stores where large numbers of condoms were stolen," according to the Star. CVS spokesperson Mike DeAngelis said not all condoms are locked in display cases. "DeAngelis also said the group behind the condom petition … was mounting a smear campaign against CVS because of a labor dispute," the article states (Erickson, 7/12).
