I'm not opposed to contraceptives, but I sure couldn't dispense an abortion in a pill bottle.

Then you shouldnt work at a pharmacy that sells that particular product. It is no different than me telling my boss that I wont sell Pepsi products because I am morally opposed the company's business practices. If your boss offers a legal product for sale, you must sell it.

Notice to all: the first time I try to fill a prescription for a legal substance and am refused because of some narrow minded employee, that will be the last time I will do any business at all with that company. If I have to send to Canada for my medication I will do that.

If you don't want to do a job because of religious concerns, then get another damn job!

How ridiculous. Now you can run around from one pharmacy to the next trying to find someone to fill your prescription. What's next--the pharmacist who is a Scientologist and won't dispense anti-depressants? One that is morally opposed to ED drugs? If this is the case, the pharmacy should have a sign in large print indicating that they may not fill xxx prescriptions so you can be on your way.

I agree and I'll probably take it a step further and protest outside any pharmacy that refuses to fill my prescription on such grounds.

The fact that this bill exists is ridiculous. It basically states that it's OK to refuse to serve blacks if you are a racist working at a restaurant. There's no difference. Do these pharmacists have a problem filling out Viagra prescriptions?

Pharmacist are overpaid pill counters. They take big bottles of pills and make them small bottles of pills. They start making 100K out of school. Just shut up and fill the prescriptions you stupidassoverpaid brats.

It is a very minimal impact bill. Get off it and get back to working on taxes, the re-organization of government like getting rid of all township govs/positions and TERM LIMITS for all elected positions. Perhaps the occasional hanging of a lobbyist would be good too!

That is why I would respect the views of the pharmacist, who is going to either ask a co-worker to fill it (I'm certain no large-chain pharmacy would allow the pharmacist to refuse to fill it without giving the patient an in-house option).

Great job, Republicans! It's already legal for a woman to get verbally assaulted when making the (still!) legal choice to have an abortion, now it's going to be legal for a woman to be refused the very pills that would prevent the abortion from even being necessary. Briliant logic there.

Birth control pills do not equal 'abortion' pills. Any pharmacist who doesn't not know the difference is too stupid to a pharmacist.(Or a functioning member of society.)

Gah. Keep your haphazard application of your questionable morals out of my business, idiots. Or I'll keep my cash out of yours.

This is all about abortion. Just dancing around it. Left got abortion into law by bypassing the citizens and going to court. SO be it. Now, the other side is trying a different approach. Mean while, my profession is being assaulted, individuals that are for killing unborn babies are telling me that I can't have any morals? But they can force theirs on me?

Then don't become a pharmacist? Don't take any job if it is against your religious views.

This is why churches should be taxed. They force their views down everyone else's throats using the politicians who will pander to the easter bunny if he/she thinks this will get some votes.

Religion is the greatest threat to the stability of our country

My relgion tells me it is ok for me to have sex with my ten year old daughter. So I would like to have a law to protect me from being arrested on my moral ground. Or maybe my religion tells me I can get a bunch of virgins if I kill my neighbor. Where's my protection.

This is nothing less than another attempt by spinless politicians to pander to one minority group.

When the legislature continues to make unfair laws it undermines the respect law and order has. I have been home schooling my three children since they were very young and one of the many things I teach them over and over is not to trust authority, to always question it.

You have just given me a lesson plan for this week on why politicians cannot ever be trusted
