Cherry Moves to Deny "Conscientious Objector" Option to Pharmacists.

State Senator Deb Cherry doesn't think pharmacists should have the option to refuse to fill prescriptions based on his/her moral or ethical beliefs. Under her legislation, SB 667, pharmacists would not be able to opt out of filling prescriptions for such drugs as RU-486, which cause pregnant women to abort their unborn children.

So, in other words, under Cherry's bill, a pharmacist would be required to fill a prescription even if she believed was an accesory to a homocide. Her freedom to choose would be abridged. How ironic.

Why not contact Senator Cherry and respectively let her know your thoughts.
