The most common, widely publicized conflicts have involved pharmacists who refuse to fill prescriptions for birth control pills, morning-after pills and other forms of contraception. They say they believe that such methods can cause what amounts to an abortion and that the contraceptives promote promiscuity, divorce, the spread of sexually transmitted diseases and other societal woes.
You have your beliefs, fine, but once those beliefs start getting in the way of you doing your job you need to find different work. It is not okay to force the job (especially if it directly impacts customers) to adapt to you.
If you are paid to dispense drugs at a pharmacy, you had better dispense those drugs when someone comes to you with a prescription and you have that drug in stock. Don’t impose your twisted morals on other people.
This seems like a good idea… having pharmacies that don’t carry and sell them in the first place. That way this problem doesn’t come up.
The pharmacies are emerging at a time when a variety of health-care workers are refusing to perform medical procedures they find objectionable. Fertility doctors have refused to inseminate gay women. Ambulance drivers have refused to transport patients for abortions. Anesthesiologists have refused to assist in sterilizations.
This pisses me off so much.
Ugh… I feel like many of the problems with society today stem from religion (or the misuse of such).
