Maybe you can lay it out for me. A woman doesn't want to become pregnant. She is not yet pregnant. She has a prescription for medication that will prevent pregnancy. You have this medication and it is your job to dispense it based on the prescription. You refuse to take it off the shelf and hand it to her. As a result she becomes pregnant. You are the reason she is now pregnant and you used your power to ensure that she became that way in direct violation of her wishes. Sounds like force to me.

The pharmacist did not force her to become pregnant. The pharmacist did not do that which would block/stop/prevent her pregnancy, which was going to result (or not) from actions which had already occured.
