Then perhaps the provider is in the wrong field. How can a pharmacist declined birth control? The 'pill' is used for other things so how can they deny what a physician has prescribed? Nor should a women have to explain to a pharmacist what she needs it for. You do have people who are against 'the pill' for 'moral reasons. I know that the birth control method that they are talking about is the IUD. I find it extremely funny how republicans run on 'less gov't' but they always can overlook that when it is beneficial to their cause.

If a clinic or hospital is willing to work with an employee who doesn't want to provide a specific service, then that employee is lucky. If not, I think the person should work somewhere else - Geriatrics, gastroenterology, cardiology, and many other specialties will not bump against these issues. People need to find the job that fits them.

This is insanity.
You VOLUNTARILY entered a profession that you KNEW routinely practiced something with which you are adamantly against.

John Methuselah McBush promised to appoint justices to the Supreme Court who will OVER TURN Roe v. Wade.

Are you better off now than you were 8 years ago ?
If not, then throw the Radical Right Wing Republican Religious Nuts OUT !
