The New Freedom of Obama Nation --- Pharmacists Will Now Be Forced to Dispense Abortifacients

Pharmacists lose pill ruling

By Carol Williams, LA Times

Pharmacists are obliged to dispense the Plan B pill, even if they are personally opposed to the "morning after" contraceptive on religious grounds, a federal appeals court ruled Wednesday.
In a case that could herald judicial policy across the Western states, a supermarket pharmacy owner in Olympia, Washington failed in a bid to block 2007 changes to pharmacy regulations requiring all Washington pharmacists to stock and dispense the contraceptive. Family-owned Ralph's Thriftway and two women employed at other pharmacies sued Washington state officials to assert that their Christian beliefs prevented them from dispensing the pills that can prevent implantation of the recently fertilized egg. They claimed that the new regulations would force them to choose between keeping their jobs and heeding their religious objections to a medication they regard as a form of abortion....On July 8, 2009, a 3 judge panel of the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals lifted the injunction, saying the district court was wrong in issuing it based on an erroneous finding that the rules violate the Free Exercise Clause of the Constitution....[According to the court], the right to freely exercise one's religion "does not relieve an individual of the obligation to comply with a valid and neutral law of general applicability," [N.B., what pray tell is not a "valid and neutral law of general applicability --- in other words one can never cite the natural or divine law as a justification for not obeying a human civil law --- question: is this not the very essence of totalitarianism] the 9th Circuit panel wrote. [Let us all in the United States admit that we have now entered into a totalitarian democracy. Europe did it a long time ago, let us admit that we have so entered now --- this ruling, with many more like it to come, proves that the United States has so entered this state.]
