Chicago Tribune on Plan B

Make sure to check out this piece from The Chicago Tribune, Plan B for pharmacists.
A snippet:
To dwell on the intricacies of the law is to lose sight of a larger point. Turning customers away is bad for business. Pharmacies are in business to sell drugs. It’s not good enough to tell a customer to call back tomorrow when a different pharmacist is on duty, or just go somewhere else. That may be relatively easy in a big city, albeit a good way to lose that customer’s repeat business. But in some rural areas, the next pharmacy isn’t a few blocks away, but many miles.
…Pharmacists must be free to exercise their professional judgment.
Good business practice dictates that employees’ moral qualms cannot be ignored. But in respecting one set of concerns, pharmacy owners need to make sure another doesn’t get trampled.
