Seriously, people.

The line between personal beliefs and medical ethics is being crossed as states are pushing and passing legislation that allows pharmicists to refuse to fill birth control prescriptions.

States should be allowed to pass their own laws as federal legislation permits, and individuals, such as doctors, have the right to make their own decisions in how they act in their profession (e.g. not giving as many painkillers as a suspected addict wants).

However, birth control pills do not equal abortion. Terminating a pregnancy is abortion, yes. Preventing the ovaries from releasing eggs, no. Not abortion. Oh how I look forward to the consequences of abstinence-only sex education.

    Abstinence-only sex education: Our competitors are INDIA and CHINA, people!

    Let’s get it on!

    Hey, no problem. If these laws start passing though, you can bet I’ll be hanging up on just about everyone.

    Satan’s Candy is so much tastier.

    I go to confession every day, I even clean the damn altars, and I get no rest from my never ending guilt of all…the…..children…I could have had by now. Birth Control Pills are Satan’s candy!

    And, since I’m female, and Tyler’s comment is moot due to XY interference, anyone taking me seriously who would like to send me death threats for the above comment should know that I am kidding.

    Listen, guys. As a birth control pill addict, I have seen the dangers of handing these things out willy-nilly …

  6. Timothy says:

    Goddamn right. Fuck that shit. I doubt Blog likes dealing with annoying customers, should he have the right to hang the fuck up on them and not get fired? NO. Because it’s his goddamn job to deal with them.

    Thank you for letting me use you as an example, Blog.

    If a person can’t handle passing out birth control pills, then maybe they shouldn’t become a pharmacist.
