David Ripley – Idaho House to Consider Pharmacist Conscience Bill

March 26th, 2009 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Life

The Idaho House will give final consideration to HB 216 in the next day or two. It is important for legislators to hear from you about this valuable defense of health care professionals.

A lot of weird objections to the bill have been raised, with the Abortion Lobby hoping fear will drive folks into opposing the bill. But the truth is, very little will change if the Legislature moves to codify conscience protections for our pharmacists. Many observers believe they already have this right under the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. And, in fact, they do. As of now, Americans still enjoy the right to practice their religion and follow their conscience.

At the same time, we must recognize that pharmacists are under assault across the nation. As one Idaho legislator put it – if they want a conscience, they should get out of the profession.

And there is the key rub: the Abortion Lobby is engaged in a national campaign to force health care professionals, especially pharmacists, into submitting to their agenda. Even if you are not pro-Life, that should scare you.

It is essential that we are able to trust the corner pharmacist to look out for us. The integrity of the profession is vital to all of us. We need it stocked with the best and brightest, men and women of the highest moral character. One day, your very life may depend upon that gentle lady behind the counter.

Given the oppressive actions of the Obama Administration, we need to defend these professionals by securing their constitutional rights in Idaho Code. That is the same reasoning which led the Idaho Legislature to protect doctors and hospitals from being forced to participate in abortions back in 1973.

    Fire them the moment they refuse to fill any prescription. It is a right to work state, so get rid of them as quickly as possible before patients start filing expensive lawsuits against the pharmacy itself.

    And screw you, David Ripley. You’re a ghoul, too.
