A “Morning-After” Victory

Your BabyChalk up a victory for the good guys, the good guys on the frontlines who support life. It doesn’t put an end to this night of wrong, but it certainly is a step in the right direction.

A federal judge has suspended Washington state’s requirement that pharmacists sell “morning-after” birth control pills, a victory for druggists who say their moral objections to the drug are being bulldozed by the government.

Druggists are people too.

In an injunction signed Thursday, U.S. District Judge Ronald Leighton said pharmacists can refuse to sell the morning-after pill if they refer the customer to another nearby source. Pharmacists’ employers also are protected by the order.

Pharmacists know best after all. It is disappointing that the judge required that a baby hostile pharmacy be recommended, however. Whatever happened to the right to remain silent?

Two pharmacists and a drugstore owner sued the state in July over the new rule, saying it violates their civil rights. They asked the judge to halt forced Plan B sales while the lawsuit is in play.

Forced sales of the abortion pill are an affront to the free market. Let the market decide. When will people finally realize that interfering with G-d’s plan is an unforgivable sin?

  1. Actually a good thing. Forcing someone to do or not to do something against his conscience is clearly something that should be avoided whenever possible in a democracy. A fine deal, for both sides.

  2. Personally, I believe that this will cause the prices for the “Morning-After Pill” to rise, simply because fewer pharmacies will be carrying it. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see what effect higher prices will have on sales.

    I find it impressive that this happened in the strongly pro-abortion state of WA, myself.

  3. Wait wait wait..okay, i’ll admit I only got through the first two sentences (at most) of this article. But…”the good guys”? Come on! Are you completely unaware that in trying to shut down these abortion clinics the Christian/Republican protestors have attacked the women several times, one man drove his car into a building (killing the receptionist…how can you justify killing someone if you’re pro life?), and a few have been lit on fire. Now, going around and beating pregnant women hardly seems like something a pro-lifer would do. Bit of an oxymoron, no? Hey, she’s going to an abortion clinic! Kick her ass! Maybe hit her in the stomach a few times, right? It’s people like you (and by you I mean the hardcore extremists that torch abortion clinics and the staff of this website) that give republicans such a terrible reputation, (I couldn’t care less either way, but you people seem to be too dense to notice that going around pissing off everyone, forcing your oppinions on them, and getting that ‘holier than thou’ mentality and preaching to them is a bad way to get support) that cast such a narrow-minded, borderline pyschotic light on all republicans.
