It's commonsense that people should have ready access to their doctor-prescribed medication.What is up with pharmacists these days? What gives them the right to place their morals as having a higher imperative than my doctor prescribed medications? They are not my priest. They are not my doctor. They are no one to me other than the person I am looking at to provide a service. If they can't handle providing the service of filling the damned prescriptions, then they should get out of the pharmacy business. It's like deliberately joining the military and refusing to wield a weapon. Does it make sense to do such a thing if you're going to refuse to meet the needs of half the planet's population? Where do they get off? And why don't we hear about them refusing to fill Viagra prescriptions?
The anti-choice movement doesn't think so. They believe pharmacists should have the right to refuse to fill birth control prescriptions on "personal, moral or religious grounds." As a result, pharmacists around the country are refusing to fill their customer's birth control prescriptions and states such as Washington and Mississippi are supporting them.

So go to http://go.care2.com/e/MeU/qu/pb.n and sign the petition that is
...calling on Congress to support the Access to Legal Pharmaceuticals Act to ensure that every woman in every state can get her prescription for birth control filled, whether or not an individual pharmacist has an objection.
That is, if you believe that you and your doctor know what is best for you instead of the person that's supposed to just fill the prescription and stay the hell outta your business!
