There are now pharmacists in Britain who refuse to dispense contraceptive pills. Scandalous nonsense; anyone who refuses to perform such an essential part of the job should instantly be struck off.
I wonder if the pharmacist’s job currently is, or will soon be, protected under religious discrimination legislation? I have a horrible suspicion that the answer is ‘yes’ to at least one. Stupid, stupid laws.
In case anyone were wondering, I’d apply exactly the same standards to Muslims in a similar position, or to blood-drinking Satanists with pentagram brands on their foreheads being rejected from customer-facing jobs. If you’re incapable of being an adequate pharmacist because you’re a member of a demented cult, then you shouldn’t be a pharmacist.
