…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.
