A pharmacist is a pharmacist, not a physician. All medical decisions are between physician and patient. The pharmacist is out of that equation (and I love pharmacists. I spend much more time discussing medication with them than with the physician). What other moral opinions will come into play? Can a pharmacist then refuse to dispense any medication that was tested on animals or uses animal product? Can a pharmacist refuse to dispense narcotics because of his/her position on drug use or believes someone should just tough out pain? I would not trust the professional judgment of any pharmacist that refused me medication based on his/her nonmedical judgment.

Certainly a pharmacist has the right to question a prescription, a right (maybe a duty) to notice similar prescriptions by various doctors that may indicate doctor shopping for illicit purposes. But pharmacists are not licensed to practice medicine.

Ah, this gives me an idea for another thread.

I agree with this. I don't know if somebody has already said this but many women have problems with their menstrual cycle. Birth control pills are often given to regulate periods, lessen severe cramping or to prevent extremely heavy bleeding....

pharmacists also need to take these factors into consideration.
