More Illinois Pharmacists Join Abortion Drug Lawsuit Against Governor

Springfield, IL (LifeNews.com) -- More Illinois pharmacists have joined one of the two lawsuits failed against Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. They seek to overturn his order requiring pharmacists there to fill all prescriptions for legal drugs, including morning after pills that can sometimes cause abortions.

: The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), which specializes in constitutional law, today filed an amended complaint in state court in Illinois adding four additional pharmacists to its lawsuit challenging Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich’s emergency amendment to the state code requiring pharmacists to dispense medication even if filling the prescriptions violate their conscience and religious beliefs...

All the wingnuts say that we live in America, the land of opportunity and if you are poor, its your fault. If we use that as a compass then I say if you can't do your job Mr. moral pharmacist, get another one. Your job is to dispense legal drugs via prescription from a doctor. If you are incapable of doing that then please find another line of work, its America after all. You are entitled to your beliefs but not at the expense of others.

(Update):-The Left Coaster really does a full scale analysis of the morning after pill and this case.
