Now Pharmacists are Under Attack Nationwide! Courtesy of Barbara Boxer.....

Boxer Has NO Respect for Personal Rights, Only Politics!

Since Illinois Governor's Executive Order forcing ALL Pharmacies to fill prescriptions regardless of their moral or religious beliefs has hit the national news, now Boxer has seen a chance to grab some limelight to make it a FEDERAL LAW! This would take away the State's rights that have already passed laws to protect Pharmacists from this political tyranny, and other states now working on the same type of laws.

I am sick of this! What's next? DEMANDING that ALL Doctor's prescribe anyone any medication they wish under the guise that it is a right? Did you know that the state of Mississippi only has ONE abortion clinic? The right to have an abortion does not mean the right to convenience. Heck, some places won't allow the purchase of alcohol on a Sunday.

This being portrayed as a Pharmacists coming between a woman and her doctor is ridiculous. No Pharmacist barges into a doctor's office to preach to either of them. It is the woman and the doctor that drag a Pharmacist into the situation!

Even Doctors are not required to prescribe the morning after pill if it is against their conscience. How can you grant this right to doctors but then give them the power to override someone else's same right?



  • Laws? We don't need no stinkin' laws! Babs Boxer can just have one of her tyrannical dictators of the Ninth Circus rule autonomously that this is how it must be done. The spineless SCOTUS will refuse to hear the case and it will be a fait accompli.
    Evil has its ways, don't you know?

  • I agree with the comment in the posting about prohibiting the sell of alcohol on certain days but anyone can kill a living human being (except on Sundays because the clinic is not open). Where have America's morals gone.

  • If filling some rx's is against a pharmacists religion or beliefs then they just need to find another occupation. After all, they won't be the ones taking the rx.CBT2025

  • I really disagree with the idea that a pharmasyst can simply refuse to fill an RX based on their personal belief. When individuals decide to work in a given profession they also agree to abide by certain ethicle standards established by the broader membership of that occupation through associations or organizations. As a human service professional, I nearly everyday encounter people who are in situations or difficulties that would not have happened had they not done what I feel is wrong. I'm talking about people with HIV, homeless due to drug abuse, Etc. As a professional it is my duty to provide assistance and support in spite and despite my beliefs. As a professional I am bound to uphold those ethics and standards. If I disagree, I should work through proper means to change the established ethicle standards, not impose mine on my clients.

  • According to a Thursday (4/21) article on NRO by K.J. Lopez (NO GO FOR BOXER), Barbara Boxer has decided to forego her amendment to require hospitals and doctors to perform or refer women for abortions and give out contraception. This would also have extended to pharmacists as discussed in this thread.
