Pope Says Pharmacists Have Right to Refuse to Dispense Emergency Contraception

Via the Associated Press:

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Benedict XVI said Monday that pharmacists have a right to use conscientious objection to avoid dispensing emergency contraception or euthanasia drugs — and told them they should also inform patients of the ethical implications of using such drugs.

Benedict told a gathering of Catholic pharmacists that conscientious objection was a right that must be recognized by the pharmaceutical profession.

And, as always, this important reminder: emergency contraception ("EC") is not the same as the early abortion pill.  Learn more about EC.
