Doctors who object to performing abortions don't have to perform them. Should a pharmacist equally at odds with dispensing abortifacients have to dispense such drugs based on similar principles? Is this discrimination against women or the pharmacist? To hear the pharmacists' side:
Pharmacists should have the right to decline work that conflicts with their beliefs as long as they respect the patient, Rod Shafer, executive
director of the Washington State Pharmacy Association, said earlier this year.
"We are not dispensing machines," Shafer said. "We are professionals
who have as many rights as anybody else."
