In my very humble opinion, I think this is a right that every woman should have, regardless of others moral convictions.

W(hy)TF would you become a pharmacist if you don't want to dispense drugs?!

Interesting topic.

Here's my question... if I own a pharmacy, as far as I know, the feds have no control over what I choose to purchase from the wholesaler, and then stock for sale. If I don't wanna sell birth control pills, I don't have to. If I don't wanna sell chemotherapy pills, I don't have to.

That's my understanding. I may be wrong.

If my perception of the law as stated above is correct, than why on earth would the morning after pill be federally mandated for sale in a shop I own?

Really, what is the problem here? Just do your job.

The problem, as I understand it, is that pharmacists who hold deep moral convictions about abortion consider this to be something wrong and immoral.

I don't agree, but that's my understanding of the issue.

You can't very well tell someone, "don't be a pharmacist" if they've been one for 20 or 40 years already.

it seems that if one believes so strongly against abortion that they would be huge supporters of birth control.

wtf?1

the profession/industry you're in is bound to change in 20-40 years. if they can't adapt, they should leave. but if your job is to give someone the medicine they were prescribed, then do it.

great point, luxelife. a very interesting and frequent contradiction.
