agreed, in some professions where you put taking care of other first if it is not illegal, you should act/provide the service regardless of personal opinions
Pretty much the pledge of a healthcare professional and you can get yourself into some real legal trouble if you turn your back on that pledge.
So commerce and freedom of religion can not co-exist?
I don't consider dispensing birth control commerce, even though there's a dollar figure attached to it. It's a medication and if a pharmacist is unwilling to provide such a medication that is prescribed by a doctor, then they should have chosen another occupation.
If some convicted criminal comes into my department at the hospital and I refuse to offer treatment prescribed by a doctor, I can find myself in serious legal trouble. This happens. I'm new to the game, but don't think for a second that vets like Jambear haven't dealt with criminal patients that he'd rather spit in their face, yet he does what he has sworn to do and helped save their life.
To work in healthcare you check your religious and political beliefs at the door and follow the law. In the case of those states, as long as birth control is a legal doctor prescribed medication, that law needs to change and all pharmacists should be required to abide.
