When she finally did find a pharmacy with it, she said she was told the pharmacist on duty would not dispense it because of religious and moral objections.
But if I go to a non-kosher butcher for bacon (which they have) and get told, "No, I won't give you bacon because it's against my religion," then that person is working in the wrong place.
I hate pharmacists. They get paid a professional salary to operate a cash register and hand me a box (which usually takes about 20 minutes). Pharmacists are not needed anymore. There are cheaper ways to ensure that people get the drugs they are supposed to get. Those that want personal assistance with the drugs should pay for it, rather then forcing the rest of us to prop up this beaurocratic niche in the midst of skyrocketing healthcare costs. I do not think it ought to be legal for a pharmacists to refuse to fill a perscription for personal reasons. Thats between me and my doctor. This is not the only context in which I have seen this kind of thing occur. Pharmacists should not be empowered to exercise their personal whims over people's healthcare.
