In the communist Post today was a story about faith based drugstores starting to crop up around the states. One will actually be opening soon in Chantilly. This is nothing more that an alternative to your society stores that also carry the profanity magazines as well “other” sexual aids. Here in part is the article.
“The United States was founded on the idea that people act on their conscience-that they have a sense of right and wrong and do what they think is right and moral” said Tom Brejcha, president and chief counsel at the Thomas More Society, a Chicago public interest law firm that was fined and reprimanded for refusing to fill prescriptions for birth control pills. “Every pharmicist has the right to do the same thing,” Brejcha said.
But critics say the stores could create dangerous obstacles for women seeking legal, safe and widely used birth control methods. “I’m very, very troubled by this,” said Marcia Greenberger of the National Women’s Law Center, a Washington advocacy group. “Contraception is essential for women’s health. A pharmacy like this is walling off an essential part of health care. That could endanger women’s health.”
Say WHAT? This is liberal speak for ” we got to ban guns because they are a public health risk.” Yeh, I get it. Here’s more.
Some pro-life pharmicies are identical to typical drugstores except that they do not stock some or all forms of contraception. Others also refuse to sell tobacco, rolling papers or pornography.
Some critics question how such pharmicies justify carrying drugs, such as Viagra, for male reproduction issues, but not those for women. “Why do you care about the sexual health of men but not women?” asked Anita L. Nelson, a professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. “If he gets his Viagra, why can’t she get her contraception?”
Viagra is a contraceptive? Oh, please tell me it’s not soooooo!
“in general, I think product differentiation expressive of differing value is a very good thing for a free, pluralistic society,” said Loren E. Lomasky, a bioethicist at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. “If we can have 20 different brands of toothpaste, why not a few different conception of how pharmicies ought to operate?”
Others maintain that pharmicists, like other professionals, have a responsibility to put their patients’ needs ahead of their of their personal beliefs. “If you are a health care professional, you are bound by professional obligations,” said Nancy Berlinger, deputy director of the Hastins Center, a bioethics think tank in Garrison, N.Y. “You can’t say you won’t do part of that profession.”
Excuse me? You mean that anyone that takes the hippocratic oathe should violate the oathe and their own beliefs so that you could, say, have an abortion because it is legal to do so?
What is being said from the opposition is that they want it their way. How dare we try to have any morals or seek to cater to a specific group. Get this:
Critics also worry that women might unsuspectingly seek contraceptives at such a store and be humiliated, or that women NEEDING the morning-after pill, which is most effective when used quickly, may waste PRECIOUS time. “Rape victims could end up in a pharmacy not understanding this pharmacy will not meet their needs,” Greenberger said. STOP! What is a rape victim doing in a pharmacy? They should be at the hospital or police station. Rape is a crime-not a wound in need of some antiseptic and a band-aid! Continue. ” We’ve seen an alarming developement of pharmicists over the last several years refusing to fill precriptions…” (What kind of prescriptions would that be?)
You get the gist. Now let the fun begin. I say if you’re Chik-filet and you don’t want to do business on Sunday for religious reasons then GOD bless you!
