More proof (as if we needed it)

pillpatrol…that anti-choicers aren’t all that hot to stop abortion, they just want women to stop fucking for any reason other than procreation — more recently-enacted so-called “conscience laws” allowing pharmacists to refuse to do their jobs:

On July 12, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal signed a “conscience protection” law that gives health-care providers and institutions the right to refuse services on religious or moral grounds.

Same goes for Arizona. On July 13, Gov. Jan Brewer signed a measure that allows pharmacists to deny a woman any birth control method that they claim to be abortifacients, even those that are medically and legally designated as contraceptives.

If a waitress who was a vegetarian refused to serve a steak to someone, how long do you think she’d last at her job?  Would the government come to her rescue with a “conscience law” that allowed her to cherry-pick which parts of her job she had to do?  Of course not:  the obvious solution for this vegan wait-person is to work somewhere other than the Black Angus Steak House, since meat is obviously on the menu.  When considering pharmacy as a career, does it not occur to anti-choicers that one of the most popular items on the pharmacy menu is contraception (with a side of cherry-almond massage oil)?

Of course it does, and that’s exactly why they choose to become pharmacists  in the first place.  Working as pharmacists gives them the opportunity to exercise sanctimonious anti-choice power plays by denying contraception to wanton jezebels, who might then end up having abortions and can be harassed and degraded even further on their way into the clinic.

It’s the vicious cycle of slut-shaming; don’t let anyone tell you any different.

    The argument about the waitress is telling.
    Just because there is no Biblical citation about
    such a situation, then she’ll get the axe while the
    controversial issues get the press coverage.

    Curious, isn’t it? The bible thumping land
    of America is one of the most decadent, low-life,
    hate-filled, and litigious societies with the
    decadence of previous decaying civilisations.

    The German word Entarete could well fit the
    description to the US as well as it did the
    Nazi regime.

    And they’re our neighbours!

    I’d rather have any other country as a neighbour.

    GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!

    That is all.

    Don’t give up on America yet! Some many of us are still fighting the good fight for the soul of our country. Sadly, sometimes I think there are more of them than there are of us.

    Torontonian – Aw, don’t be discouraged: there are lots of cool Americans. Unfortunately it’s the assholes that you mostly hear about because of their weirdness. American progressives are great. If they can just get past all the obstacles the wingnuts are throwing in front of the new admin, they’ll make it.

    Dr.Prole – Me too. I can’t even imagine a pharmacist daring to refuse to fill a birth control script for me — way to invite yourself to a slap in the head, eh? Oh, I’d love it.

    JAB – Don’t even think that. There aren’t more of them — they’re just louder, like most lunatics. The wingnut faction is actually less than 1/3, and I’d say probably around 25%, of Americans. Unfortunately your wingnuts are the wingnuttiest.

    Unfortunately your wingnuts are the wingnuttiest.

    That and our wingnuts seem to be giving your wingnuts ideas… 8O :?

    well, that last emoticon didn’t work. Let’s try this: :???:

    Well, that and our assholes fucking own the media here… :???:

    Everything else aside, would the conscience of these pharmacists keep them from filling prescriptions for Viagra or Cialis which may well lead to women needing birth control? I don’t think so!

    As far as I’m concerned, if women can’t have legal prescriptions for birth control filled, then men have no right to expect prescriptions for “male enhancement” filled. Fair is fair.

    JAB – I thought the media was controlled by liberals :???: :P

  12. 12 JJ Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 9:00 am

    Illanoy Gal – Oh, you can bet they have no qualms about Viagra.

    The difference is, these people believe that a fertilized egg is the same as a born human person so far as they’re concerned contraception causes abortions because it keeps those little fertilized egg-people from implanting. Nuts, yes, I know :roll:
