Guilt by association.
Ever wonder what the next step in the abortion wars is going to be? Wonder no more, It's here. Seattle isn't the place I would have expected this to turn up, but it's pretty bizarre. Some pharmacists are refusing on "moral grounds" to fill prescriptions for antibiotics and vitamins just because they were issued from a clinic that provides a variety of services including abortions.

Look, if you're a pharmacist, it's your job to dispense legally prescribed drugs. You're not a doctor, you're not an inquisitor. It's not your job to judge people's treatment or their lives. If you don't like that, there are plenty of other jobs out there.

At this point, I'm just waiting for the first case of a Scientologist becoming a pharmacist and refusing to fill prescriptions for antidepressants.
