Life Legal is representing a pharmacist who has told her employer she cannot dispense prescriptions for abortion-inducing drugs, including oral birth control and emergency contraception. The pharmacist, who is Catholic, has made it clear that dispensing the drugs violates her deeply held beliefs. The pharmacy said if she did not change her position, she would be terminated immediately.
The pharmacist did not back down.
She has worked for the pharmacy for many years and has always received a religious accommodation to exempt her from dispensing prescriptions that violate her conscience. This year, however, the pharmacy is saying that birth control and morning after pills are “essential” services.
Because litigation is pending, we cannot provide any further details, but we ask that you please pray for the pharmacist and her family, as the loss of employment during this challenging time is devastating.
Would you please also consider making a donation of $25, $50, or even $100 as we intervene on behalf of those who face discrimination, threats, harassment, and worse because of their pro-life views? We so appreciate your faithful support.
