"The culture of life" means pregnancy is "punishment"

Highly Unconstitutional

This act of moralistic self-righteousness is truly unconstitutional and the courts should rule as such. A pharmacist is there to fill prescriptions, not preach their belief system.

It seems it doesn't matter...

...whether what they do is unconstitutional or not. They see the Constitution as a problem. They want to pervert it into their own twisted theocratic doctrine. They want to overthrow the government they control.

Go figure.

That's the best debunking of the "conscience" argument against filling prescriptions that I've read. Keep up the good work!

Pregnancy isn't just punishment, it's also a lasso...

to rope your guy in. As Brauer says a bit further along, "NOW gals, ya got what you wanted. Total autonomy. So don't ask some of these guys for child support. Thanks for screwing things up for women who want their kids to have a daddy."

So we get to the heart of the issue. Not only does pregnancy punish the bad, bad girls but ropes them a husband. I honestly think that this is one thing that these anti-abortionists/anti-contraception nuts are terrified of: if they have a choice to prevent or terminate pregnancy, they can't nab a man by "accidently" getting pregnant. Apparently, somehow, giving women a choice absolves men of any responsibility for their own choices. Interesting...
