A young woman from Saguenay, Que., says she left a local pharmacy feeling shamed after a pharmacist refused to sell her emergency oral contraception, better known as the morning-after pill, because it went against his religious beliefs.

"I felt bad, I felt really judged," said the 24-year-old woman, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of reprisal.
