Can Pharmacists Morally Object?
I dont know if this has been debated here before or not but I saw it on the news and thought I would get some opinions. Question: Should pharmacists be allowed to choose not to fill prescriptions for medications that induce abortion (i.e. the morning-after pill) if they are morally opposed to abortion? In the news report I saw today, a distinction was made between contraceptives (prevents pregnancy) and the “morning-after pill” (terminates pregnancy). I know some people make no distinction between contraceptives and abortion but I, personally, am not interested in that aspect. I am only interested in whether or not you think pharmacists have the “right” to refuse to fill a prescription for abortion if they are morally opposed to abortion.
