 Rx-filling Mandate Backed By AMA

The American Medical Association voted Monday to put its weight behind legislative initiatives around the United States that would require pharmacies

The American Medical Association voted Monday to put its weight behind legislative initiatives around the United States that would require pharmacies to fill legally valid prescriptions in the wake of recently publicized refusals by pharmacists opposed to dispensing the morning-after contraceptive.

If the pharmacist or pharmacy has objections, they should provide an "immediate referral to an appropriate alternative dispensing pharmacy without interference," according to the resolution passed Monday by the AMA's policymaking House of on

Now read's article: American Medical Association Targets Catholic and Pro-Life Pharmacists for Extinction : The American Medical Association is backing a proposal that would force pharmacists to dispense abortifacients like the morning-after emergency abortion and birth control pill or refer to another pharmacist to have the prescriptions filled.

They also say: The Pharmacists for Life International (PFLI) web site describes their view of the morning-after emergency abortifacient: “Any medically educated person should be given to understand that this regimen works primarily by preventing the implantation of an already fertilized egg. This is not contraception.”


If its not contraception wingnuts then what is it? Contraception prevents pregnancies by not allowing eggs to be fertilized. Am I missing something here? They should be behind the Plan B pill one hundred percent. It would be in line with their beliefs exactly. What does a condom do? Are these pro-life fools against selling condoms? I feel a new letter coming on.
