    In other news, an influx of $cientologists have been reported to be applying for pharmacist positions.

    I am confident that most doctors and pharmacists are good proffesionals. Come on, people like them know very well the difference between religion and civil society.
    I'm sure that most doctors and pharmacists are good professionals, but if people like them know the difference between civil society and religion there wouldn't be the need for a law like this.

    Pharmacists do not dispense RU486; that is the actual abortion pill and is in no way similar to Plan B or regular birth control pills.
    Ortho tri cyclen is not prescriped for morning after purposes because it is not considered effective. However, some fundamentalist pharmacists consider it "abortifacient" because if theoretical "breakthrough ovulation occurs", then the inhospitable uterus (lining affected by the ortho) will cause the fertilized egg to not attach to the uterine wall. So, under these auspices, some pharmacists will refuse to fill birth-control prescriptions.

    Plan-B (levonorgestrel) is even more likely to be refused by a pharmacist on religious grounds because, if I'm not mistaken, it doesn't suppress ovulation, but rather suppresses implantation. I could be wrong.

    I've been looking to see if only a doctor can dispense RU486. The information I'm seeing doesn't look definitive.

    I think I meant to say that levonorgestrel is even more effective at preventing implantation of the fertilized egg (than ortho tricyclen)
