When the first story came out, I said that the pharmacist had the right to refuse. This, on the other hand, is completely reprehensible, and the a-holes who are keeping the Rx's should have their licenses stripped; the lecturers should be censured.They DO NOT have the right to refuse.If your religious convictions don't permit you to remove your clothes in public, you can't take a job as a stripper and then insist only upon removing your gloves. If your religious convictions don't approve of alcohol, you can't take a job as a bartender and insist upon dispensing only soft drinks. If your religious convictions weigh in against smoking, you can't take a job as a clerk in a convenience store and refuse to ring up cigarette sales.If your religious convictions make it impossible for you, in good conscience, to dispense birth control, pain killers or any other form of medication, you shouldn't be permitted to hold a job as a pharmacist and insist upon dispensing only those items of which you approve.If you can't dispense birth control when it is prescribed by a physician, you lack the essential qualifications to be a pharmacist.SLL
