You're A Pharmacist, Not The King; Shut Up and Do Your Job

From CNN: POSTED: 11:45 a.m. EST, March 9, 2007

ATLANTA, Georgia (AP) -- Kroger Co. said Friday it was reiterating its drug policies to all of its pharmacists after a Georgia woman claimed she was denied the so-called "morning after" pill at one of the company's stores.

The Cincinnati-based grocery chain said if its pharmacists object to fulfilling a request, the store must "make accommodations to have that prescription filled for our customer."

I have a better response for people who refuse to do their job; "You're fired"! That should be the company’s only response. What if a vegetarian bag boy refused to bag someone’s ground beef? What if a Catholic bag boy refused to bag a box of condoms? What if the janitor refused to clean up broken eggs?? They would all be fired. Why is it that when a pharmacist with a crusade decides not to do his job, they just find someone to do it for him?? I wish I had it that easy.

If you don't want to fill prescriptions, don't become a pharmacist. If you don't believe in birth control then don't work at a place which sells birth control and then you can go raise all the unwanted orphan babies yourself.

Why is it that you never see Atheists standing out in front of churches, blocking peoples entrance and protesting against people because of the way they believe? Why is it that you never see pro-choice people trying to force others into having abortions? Why is it that you never see anyone refusing to sell someone a Bible just because they don't agree with what it says?? Why is it always the religious, conservative right the ones who try to force their lifestyle on everyone else??

Do they just not have anything else to do? Are they the types who have miserable lives and hate to see someone else happy? So much cock blocking in this world.
