Pharmacists Aren't Paid to Be Moralists

June 09, 2005

California Assembly Bill 21 (June 6) has got to be a joke.

Allowing pharmacists to refuse to fill a prescription on moral grounds?

What a crock.

It is the job of the pharmacist to fill prescriptions. Period.

If that is too much of a moral struggle, then quit and get a job in which your moral beliefs will be satiated.

The Legislature should be embarrassed completely for this misguided and moronic bill.

As much I do not care for our B-list governor, I fervently hope he vetoes AB 21.
