Pharmacist to be FIRED for not dispensing abortifacients
Life Legal is representing a pharmacist who has told her employer she cannot dispense prescriptions for abortion-inducing drugs, including oral birth control and emergency contraception. The pharmacist, who is Catholic, has made it clear that dispensing the drugs violates her deeply held beliefs. The pharmacy said if she did not change her position, she will be terminated immediately.
The pharmacist did not back down.
She has worked for the pharmacy for many years and has previously received a religious accommodation to exempt her from dispensing prescriptions that violate her conscience. This year, however, the pharmacy is saying that providing birth control and morning after pills are an “essential” part of her job.
Because litigation is pending, we cannot provide any further details, but we ask that you please pray for the pharmacist and her family, as the loss of employment during this challenging time is devastating.
