If he picks and chooses what prescriptions he will fill based upon some religious dogma he does.

FACT: The Pharmacy and Pharmacists in question have every legal and moral right to do what they have chosen to do.

I said he CAN choose, not that he DOES...he does not feel he is in a place to pass any judgment, instead he is a health care provider and that is his main concern while he is working. He wants to do the best for his patients and his moral judgment does not come into play. Seriously, please reread what I said in my earlier posts.

Until the law changes no one is required to do anything they are morally opposed to... that was what I was saying...several times.

Also, I never said he is a pharmacist.

You should be more careful in how you speak. That's the law in Virginia.

Virginia over the years has had some textbook cases of laws overturned because they are bad laws. See Loving v Virginia. The fact that Virginia permits this is an interesting factoid, but nothing more.

Some Catholic hospitals won't do tubal ligations. If I wanted to have a tubal ligation, I would simply go to a non-Catholic hospital. I think this is the same thing, and I don't see what the problem is. Can't a private business decide on its own what it will and will not sell, or what services it will or will not perform?

This is being done today and in hospitals...no lawsuits yet...

Yes, they can decide what services want they want to offer and sell...until they are government subsidized, that is.

I read that too! There are many old treatments that are becoming more "fashionable", should I say. I will leave it to others to try the leaches and get back to me.
