    Angry Last ditch Bush law would see pharmacists/docs turn anybody away for ANY REASON

    What the FUCK is wrong with people?

    Under the new proposed Bush rule (see full article here), it seems that pharmacists could refuse to help you if you come asking for:

    1. Condoms
    2. Birth control
    3. Anything they find morally objectionable (Does that mean only "innocent victims" of HIV/AIDS will be able to get their medicine? And what about Viagra?)

    What happens if my pharmacist is a Christian Scientist - does that mean they don't have to dispense any medicine at all? And what if my pharmacists is a Baptist and thinks Catholics worship Satan - does he have to help Satan worshippers? According to Congresswoman DeGette's office (D-CO), the new rule could permit a receptionist to refuse to make an appointment that she finds immoral, it could permit a lab technician to not run tests, or even clean equipment, for procedures that he finds immoral.

    Bush is doing this for the nutjobs on the religious right, and the far-right Republicans running the Catholic church. They don't care if you're rushed to the emergency room and the doctor on call refuses to help you because you're gay or because you're Muslim or because you're Jewish. They only care about perpetuating hate. More on this from Cong. DeGette.

    I'm in agreement with you on this -- it's crazy.

    But be prepared for the brigade of people who will argue that it's not an inconvenience to have to drive an extra 10 miles down the road to get something perfectly legal you should have been able to buy at your local Walgreens, which just happened to be staffed at the time by a religious zealout.

    Remember also, that some people consider it immoral to kill animals for food (Hindu or 7th-Day Adventist). Maybe they could refuse to sell stuff that was developed via animal research or that was cultivated in eggs (flu shots). Once you open up this Pandora's Box, there is not end to it....

    No anti-depressants for anybody, because if you'd just open your heart to Jesus you'd be filled with joy.

    Ladies, be ready to commune on the outskirts of the cities for one week every month. No Charmin or wet wipes, as that could encourage unnatural acts as well. Bye bye energy drinks, you evil drugs sent by Satan or some group the cashier thinks is working as his minions.

    This is becoming absolutely insane. The ultra right doesn't even seem to realize they are contradicting themselves. If every pharmacy in an area refuses to dispense birth control, will they riot when the abortion clinic shows up? When the lack of Viagra leaves the homefires nothing more than embers, will the clergy accept adultery? Can the pharmacy be named as the reason for the stepping out?

    I'm hearing that it will be very difficult. Another example were a flurry of last-minute environmental laws that loosen restrictions on polluting, etc. Supposedly, it is very hard to undo these things once they become law.
