Arizona – Walgreens Pharmacist Refuses Woman Drugs To End Pregnancy

In a case of ‘moral grounds’, a stance that supermarket chain Walgreens admits it allows its personnel to take, Ms Nicole Mone took to social media this week to tell how the local Walgreens Pharmacist had refused to sell her prescription medication to end her two-month pregnancy even though her doctor had informed her the baby would not survive.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Image copyright Nicole Mone Image caption Nicole Mone found out two months into her pregnancy that her baby was not developing properly An Arizona woman has said she was left &quot;in… <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; InterSpaceReporter (@ISpaceReporter) <a href="">June 24, 2018</a></blockquote>

Ms Mone, clearly upset both because of the events to her unborn child and secondly because of the behavior of the Walgreens employee, explained her case at length. She said: “The doctor gave me two options D&C (dilatation and curettage – a surgery used to treat miscarriage) or prescription medication.”

“I opted for prescription.”

She ordered the drugs and went to the local Walgreens to pick up her medication this last Thursday, only to find out that the pharmacist chose not to give it to her.

The young mother continued: “I stood at the mercy of this pharmacist explaining my situation in front of my seven-year-old and five customers standing behind only to be denied because of his ethical beliefs.”

“I get it we all have our beliefs. But what he failed to understand is this isn’t the situation I had hoped for, this isn’t something I wanted. This is something I have zero control over.”

Walgreens, given the popularity of the social media post which quickly spread online, released a statement in response claiming that their pharmacy personnel in Arizona is indeed entitled to refuse service “for which they have a moral objection.”

“At the same time, they are also required to refer the prescription to another pharmacist or manager on duty to meet the patient’s needs in a timely manner.”

29621 here’s the oath the drug dealers take -

“I promise to devote myself to a lifetime of service to others through the profession of

pharmacy. In fulfilling this vow:

I will consider the welfare of humanity and relief of suffering my primary concerns.

I will apply my knowledge, experience, and skills to the best of my ability to assure optimal outcomes for my patients.

I will respect and protect all personal and health information entrusted to me.

I will accept the lifelong obligation to improve my professional knowledge and competence.

I will hold myself and my colleagues to the highest principles of our profession’s moral, ethical and legal conduct.

I will embrace and advocate changes that improve patient care.

I will utilize my knowledge, skills, experiences, and values to prepare the next generation of pharmacists. I take these vows voluntarily with the full realization of the responsibility with which I am entrusted by the public.”

There job is to fill bottles and sell drugs and make sure there are no interaction issues with multiple meds. The only time they are to refuse is during fraud and when they see a dangerous combination of prescriptions, but in that case they are to call the doc to see if he wants to change one or the other.

The pharmacist is not a prescriber and his moral compass should have nothing to do with what he fills as long as a doc wrote the script for the patient.

This is the same shit as the pharms that won’t fill birth control pills or the morning after pills.

Find a new pharmacy without a sjw pusher.
