    The government is trying to pass a law that stops pharmacist from from making judgement calls like if:
    1. They feel it’s morally wrong (like birth control)
    2. The doctor in good conscious gave the patient a perscription but the patient was out for an addiction or abuse (vicodon)
    3. 2 different types of pills don’t mix.

    I’m sure there is more reasons but the point is that pharmacist would no longer have a say in the matter. They would just fill out the perscription regardless of the harm it may cause to the individual. They are the last door for patients health. What do you guys think?

    I agree. Pharmacists have good records of what type of medications that their customs are taking. If a pharmacist sees a dangerous drug interaction or a possible addiction, then he/she is MORALLY obligated to not fill the perscription. They should not be made into robots who just hand out the drugs. That would make them little better that a drug dealer on the street.

    I think all people should be able to object to something they see as immoral. If a pharmacist believes contraceptives are immoral then they should not to hand them out.

    Well obviously I agree but the man behind the counter may have contradictory morals. Then what? What if he doesn’t want to give someone a certain medication for X reason and that person dies?

    Medication to preserve life should never be in question. Medication to prevent life or kill should. How’s that? <img src=” title=”Wink” />
