Angry feminist Biting Beaver (via Kevin Drum) had some trouble getting a doctor to write her a prescription for emergency contraception, apparently because she's not married.

I'm appalled, of course, but more than that I'm puzzled. Doctors were given the power to control access to prescription drugs in order to protect us from the dangers of unregulated access to medication. How could it be that a regulation passed in the name of public health is now being used to further an ideological agenda?
