to me, as a female, this is a very dangerous road that i see us going down. and before you say i just want it available for me, well i'm happily
married, with three kids and not able to get pregnant. but, that aside, the precedent that is being set by pharmacies of any name is the total
disreguard for the wellbeing of the person who trusts their pharmacist to be there for them when they need it. as others have said, walmart is going
in and becoming sometimes the only pharmacy to get medications when needed. this lawsuit is to bring the law into focus, not for pharmacies to sell
drugs that they don't want. it doesn't bother me that walmart refuses to sell music that is unedited, that they sell guns, that they pay their
workers crap, that they push the little companys out of business, or that they get cheap products overseas and cut honest americans out of work. what
bothers me is someone pushing their beliefs on others.
if i get a prescription, and i go to the only pharmacy available to have it filled only to be told that i can't have it because the person behind
the counter doesn't 'morally' approve of it, you bet i'm gonna be mad. these pharmacies have to dispense the drugs that are approved by law.
that goes for ANY drug. i don't approve of many drugs, viagra included, but it is not me taking these drugs. my job, as a pharmacist is to dispense
the drugs legally prescribed without any comments.
i mention viagra, mainly because they don't have any problem dispensing that, but the consequences of dispensing that one drug leads to many of the
problems that require the morning after pill.
yes i believe that some lawsuits are frivilous, but in this case, they are not asking for millions, they are asking for clarification so that
others who may need this drug finds it available if they do. there are TO many people these days trying to push their morals on others and when they
don't get their way they sue too. thats mainly whats wrong in america today, we let our manufacturing jobs go to other countrys and now we have a
overabundence of lawyers who need to work, and are sueing everybody because we have become a country of the haves vs the have nots, and the only way
to get from the bottom to the top is not through hard work, because the jobs are gone, but from lawsuits which only hurt us more.
morals do not belong in a pharmacy, they belong at home and in church between you and GOD. and if we are talking about my GOD, he would never hold
me doing my job against me.
