    Rape victim: 'Morning after' pill denied

    This is absolutely horrific. :eek:

    Another example of holier than thou religous flat earthers imposing their fake moral values' upon someone who doesn't want to get pregnant, she was raped damnit. :mad:

    Disgusting. I can't think of much more to say.

    It's just sickening that she couldn't get the pill given her dire situation...

    Very disturbing story. The lesson to be learned is that to preserve one's options such assaults must be reported promptly, since that results in emergency contraception being offered by hospital personnel after they complete their medical examination.

    It is understandable why many women fail to report an incident of rape - personal trauma, feelings of shame and guilt, etc. - but there can be a steep price to pay for doing that. I wish the young woman well as she goes forward.

    I hope he worked for a large chain so that she can make sure he's admonished properly. If the pharmacist had been a rape victim, I'm sure his values would become a bit more sympathetic...not pathetic.

    Oh sorry dear, we stock the pill but don't give it to anyone. :rolleyes: WTF? If you can't perform the duties of a pharmacist, then don't be one!

    she'll probably have an abortion. and i hope she goes and tells that pharmacist what his actions caused.

    i'd like to hear from a pro-life person: is there a "level of badness" wrt ru486 and an abortion? i.e. can anyone tell me that an abortion is no worse than ru486?

    not only are his actions legal, but many companies have policies which allow this.

    i think it's outrageous, but i see it as a general trend in the US to prefer christian dogma to common sense and science. this is all gonna hurt come winter.

    S/he should be paying child support to this girl. Now tell me what your moral values are. *******. Really, she needed medicine, he's a pharmacist. Keep your bible classes out of the freaking workplace.
