This is one to watch. In Illinois several pharmacists have sued after being terminated for refusing to give customers so-called "emergency contraception." Here in Missouri a Target pharmacist was fired for the same reason.

    I am left to wonder if the silence here means agreement with the pharmacist of conscience, or with the company anxious not to miss a buck.
    McCain: Are you seriously suggesting that because people have not posted a comment on this story this must mean they agree with the companies? Or am I missing your point? Please clarify.

    No, I asked which side the readers here might take, if they did respond.
    Should the pharmacist violate his/her faith beliefs to serve a customer?
    Perhaps the initial note wasn’t up long enough to attract attention? Or are they apathetic on this issue, which is of some concern to pharmacists?
    McCain: Lack of comments actually mean…nothing. Many posts here go uncommented on.
    Pharmacists are people who occasionally get to church, too.
    My daughter (R.Ph.) reported an odd conversation with a patient on Sunday morning. The patient said, “I pray for you because you have to miss church.”
    My daughter said to me, “It apparently escaped her notice that, if she and others did not patronize the store on Sunday a.m., we’d be back to opening at noon.”
