The Conscience Clause

Are we seriously still talking about this? Pharmacists are licensed to cover a basic range of services, including providing emergency contraception. States should not license pharmacists who are unable for any reason to provide this range of services. They are welcome to develop an alternative licensing scheme for people who only sell drugs that promote the cult of life, or whatever. Just don’t call it pharmacy.

So you want the government to force private businesses to carry specific products against their will? Can you cite any precedent for that?

Requiring licensed professionals to meet the standards of their licensure is commonly referred to as “regulation.”

If you are unwilling to dispense necessary drugs, then you’re quite welcome to a long and fulfilling non-pharmaceutical career of your choosing.

Regulation doesn’t demand that all doctors provide abortions.

Anon3 says…

Regulation doesn’t demand that all lawyers defend child molestors.

Regulation doesn’t demand that all Snarkommenters make actual arguments instead of specious analogies.

Anon4 says…

Or to define the fallacy in said Snarkomment.
