ex causes the pregnancy. But, if the particular woman is without other resources for getting the prescription, and if her life is such that she cannot avoid having sex, then the result may feel the same to her as if she had been forced.

I'm kind of irritated by the whole "you could just not have sex" argument for why pharmacists should be able to withhold birth control too. I don't personally think anyone should have to avoid sex if they don't want to, but this is especially true of say married people.

Anyone want to explain to me why a married woman should not have sex on the off chance that some douchenozzle phamacist will suddenly up and withhold their birth control which they need within 72 hours? I haven't even brought up the cliched rape victims, because really we don't even need to go there. There are plenty of regular day-to-day cases where withholding birth control is inappropriate.
