I did some research and in 11 states stores ARE required to allow customers to use their bathrooms for emergency reasons like for IBD and Crohns. Now the rest need to catch up. article I really am sorry for my stance I don't want folks to hate me but this is something important to me. So for those who work in stores banning this, you may want the owner to check the law. Also some store owners have found that their ban is against the law like in NH.
