Long before neo-cons took over the executive, judicial and legislative branches of
government to get rid the secular world of Roe vs. Wade, save the soul of America and put up back into the graces of God, evidently they had been infiltrating society on another front to accomplish the same goal, pharmaceutical schools.
I can’t tell you how many news stories I come across in the news of American women trying to buy a prescription of the morning after pill only to be refused by a pharmacist who
refused to sell her the pills because of the pharmacist’s religious and moral objections.
"Although it is safe, effective and legal, emergency contraception - the morning after pill - can be hard to find in Tucson. After a sexual assault one recent weekend, a young Tucson woman spent three frantic days trying to obtain the drug to prevent a pregnancy, knowing that each passing day lowered the chance the drug would work. While calling dozens of Tucson pharmacies trying to fill a prescription for emergency contraception, she found that most did not stock the drug. When she finally did find a pharmacy with it, she said she was told the pharmacist on duty would not dispense it because of religious and moral objections."
To me this is like someone with high cholesterol being told by his pharmacist that instead of dispensing the guy his cholesterol lowering medication that he just needs to stop eating fattening foods instead.
"I can’t tell you how many news stories I come across in the news of American women trying to buy a prescription of the morning after pill only to be refused by a pharmacist who refused to sell the pills base on the pharmacist’s religious and moral objections."
How about not giving a single guy his prescription of Viagra because the pharmacist has a religious and moral objection to fornication, which he correctly assumes the man must be having since he isn’t married. IN fact, that is the only kind of sex he can have.
How come when it comes to physicians we make a point to completely rob them of any power to make judgments on what they personally believe is morally right or not, but your fucking pharmacist can legally make his/her moral decision on whether or not they should sell you legal medications based on their own personal religious and moral grounds.
People would throw a fit if a physician went against his patients wishes said, “You know what, I find it morally reprehensible that we keep feeding this brain dead vegetable. I don’t care what his living will states, I am not going to do it anymore. He has been like this since 1972, he isn’t coming out of it. This is cruel, inhumane, his brain is mush and I am calling it a game.”
Why should there be laws protecting your pharmacist if he chooses to refuse to give you treatment on the grounds that it goes against his or her moral or religious beliefs but a physician can’t?
