It turns out that American godbags aren’t the only ones who go to pieces at the thought of motherless embryos.
Distantly apropos of embryos: What is the deal with these fucking nutjob pharmacists? BitchPhD links to an article about yet another instance of some godstruck loony denying a rape victim access to Plan B. As the Dr. points out "for the umpteenth time," Plan B is a contraceptive, not an abortion pill. Not that it matters a fig to me either way, since women need to be able to control pregnancy by whatever means necessary, but presumably the aforementioned nutjob pharmacists have been to pharmacy school, and should, theoretically, grasp the difference. Do these delusional zealots also refuse to sell rubbers and birth control pills? Their supposed conscientious objection to Plan B appears to be an idÃ©e fixe, or a sort of mass hysteria, and that they are allowed to mingle freely with the general public–let alone dispense drugs–when they so clearly exhibit symptoms of psychosis is absolutely outrageous.
Thanks for the chicken link, Darky.
