More garbage from the anti-choice mob

The right, who have, with Alito's nomination still unconfirmed, been unable - yet - to stack the Supreme Court with enough of their ilk to overturn Roe v Wade (the 60's landmark Supreme Court case which acknowledged a woman's right to control her body in the area of abortions) have many other irons in the fire. Their latest piece of idiocy is that pharmacists are allowed, in most states, to refuse to fill prescriptions for birth control or emergency "morning-after" pills, if doing so goes against their religious beliefs.

What a crock. What next? "Police Officer refuses to arrest a fellow Christian"? "Firefighter refuses to rescue Moslems from blazing building"? "Paramedic refuses to give mouth-to-mouth to Jew"? "Doctor refuses to resuscitate Atheist"? How about "video store employee refuses to serve black customer"? Sound so reasonable now?

No, of course not. But pharmacists want "the right to choose".

Hey, you already have the right to choose. Choose to fill the prescription or choose to find a new job. It's that simple.
