No one should have the ability to play God over somebody else's life. Regardless of the choices. People in retail don't get to choose not to serve shity people. It should be the same way here.

According to Article 16 of the UN’s Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, women have,
“The rights to decide freely and responsibly on the number and spacing of their children and to have access to the information, education and means to enable them to exercise these rights.”
https://www.ohchr.org/documents/professionalinterest/cedaw.pdf
What that means is that the refusal to be able to have access to emergency contraception i.e. the morning after pill, is discriminating against them.

Religious people should stay home and not interact with the rest of the world if this is how they are going to behave. They have no right to impose their religious views on others. Rights of the religious have gotten completely out of hand.

Everyone has different beliefs and whatnot and that's fine but it seems stupid to work somewhere where your beliefs basically stop you from doing what you're paid to do.....

I think it is outrageous that a pharmacist can refuse to prescribe medication that a person's GP thinks they need. The pharmacist's personal opinion is completely irrelevant.

The role of the pharmacist is to dispense medication not judge.
