PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) - A woman says a pharmacist denied her doctor's prescription for miscarriage medications to end her 10-week-old pregnancy based on moral grounds. Nicole Artega says the pharmacist at a Walgreens in Arizona refused to fill the prescription even though her doctor had told her her pregnancy would end in a miscarriage. Walgreens says pharmacists don't have to fill prescriptions on moral grounds. They are required to refer those prescriptions to another pharmacist or manager, which this pharmacist did.

PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality has issued a High Pollution Advisory in Maricopa County for Monday. The department said Sunday that the advisory is being called because ozone levels in the county that includes Phoenix are expected to exceed the federal health standard. People most affected by ozone include children, older people, people who work or exercise outdoors and people with respiratory diseases. Ozone can irritate the respiratory system and aggravate asthma.
