Robert P pointed me to a proposed bit of legislation that would permit not only physicians, but also pharmacists to refuse to participate in any medical procedure or dispensing medicine relating to abortion. This is what's known as a "conscience clause," because the refusal is on moral or religious grounds, rather than scientific.
What started this all was a pair of pharmacists in Illinois who were suspended by Walgreens for refusing to dispense Plan B because they believe (note that word) it is abortion.
The problem is that science doesn't back them up, and belief has nothing to do with fact. Plan B is two doses 0.75 mg of levonorgestrel taken 12 hours apart, within 72 hours of unprotected sex. It works by preventing a fertilized egg from implanting into the uterus. If the fertilized egg has already implanted into the uterus, Plan B will not work. Medical science defines pregnancy as beginning with the implantation of the fertilized egg, and abortion as the termination of pregnancy. Clearly, preventing implantation is not the same as abortion.
However, when "belief" trumps fact, when you "believe" that pregnancy is defined as egg meeting sperm, you get people like Pharmacists for Life. (Google them if you want; I'm not linking. They're quacks.)
In my opinion, as a pro-choice pharmacist, the woman has a right to obtain medical treatment. When Plan B was still rx-only, she had to 1) decide it was what she wanted, then 2) go to her physician, then 3) talk to the MD, then 4) get the prescription. She's already made the decision that she wants to use this medication, and her doctor agreed that it would be best for her. It's nothing but rank paternalism to suggest that a stranger, someone uninvolved with her personally and unaware of the circumstances, to decide that he (and it's usually HE) knows better.
