National Catholic Register covers the back and forth seesawing of the Washington Board of Pharmacy on the issue of conscience and pharmacy practice.
Eventually most of the board members gave in to their masters, returning to a decision which had already been met with a court challenge. This judicial process will have to go forward.
Riding underneath the seesawing was the possibility that pro-abort Governor Gregoire would be picked to join the Obama administration and occupy Elena Kagan’s former position as solicitor general. Later it is said that Gregoire’s enthusiasm for that position cooled, but we do not know if it means she did not make the cut, or whether she actually asked to be taken off the list.
The Board of pharmacy serves at the behest of the governor.
