Another “Pro-Choice” Cliche Vanishes
One of the standard excuses of the pro-choicers is that they're not trying to force anybody to participate in an abortion&hellip until now:
DENTON, Texas (AP) -- About 40 people gathered outside an Eckerd pharmacy Monday, protesting what they said was a decision to deny a rape victim a prescription for the morning-after pill.
A spokesman for the Florida-based company confirmed that Eckerd has taken disciplinary action in response to an incident at the store.
Gay Dodson, executive director of the Texas State Board of Pharmacy, said state law allows pharmacists to decline filling prescriptions if the medication could harm the patient.
"The law does not say that the pharmacy can decline because of moral ground," she said.
