Yesterday we had the story of the Eckerd’s pharmicist who refused to fill a prescription for the morning-after pill. Today we have a similar story from England.
A WOMAN was told she could not have a “morning after” contraceptive Pill because it was against the pharmacist’s religious beliefs.
The married woman, who does not want to be named, was “extremely upset” after being denied the emergency treatment because the pharmacist at an Asda store in Stockport was a devout Christian.
She claims she was not advised of alternative pharmacies as the pharmacist refused to speak to her. The store later denied this.
As it was late afternoon the woman, an office administrator from Stockport, went without taking the medication.
Now she is blaming Asda for not providing an acceptable service.
She said: “I am absolutely outraged that a member of staff can be allowed to refuse to sell a product which is well within my legal rights to buy.
“I understand the need for respect for employees and their religion, but when I visit a store such as Asda, I do not expect to have staff impose their moral ethics on me or the choice of my purchases.
Of course she had no problem with forcing her moral ethics on the pharmicist. The culture of death marches on when an abortafacient becomes a “choice of my purchases.” A hearty thanks to those pharmicist that don’t cave in the pressure, they definitely need our prayer support.
