‘I can’t give you the morning-after pill… it’s against my religion’ – Local – Hartlepool Mail.
Another conscientious Boots Pharmacist acts up. A 29 year old female patient, who desired to remain anonymous, was refused the morning after pill at a Boots pharmacy in Middleton Grange Shopping Centre, Hartlepool, UK.
She left the pharmacy in a state of shock, and was apparently not able to get her pills until two days later.
Boots pharmacies has dealt with this issue before, and their spokesman acknowledges that the employees have a right to exercise conscientious objection, in refusing to dispense certain drugs.
The above linked article fails to recognize the manufacturer’s stated multiple mechanisms of the morning after pills, and dishonestly states only that they operate to “stop the ovaries from releasing eggs”.
