Numbers will count!
Strong presence at the Board hearing is needed to prevent this draft rule from becoming official.
If the Draft Rule becomes official it...
Gives the Board of Pharmacy authority to suspend, fine and/or remove the license of pharmacies who do not fill, on demand, drugs that cause abortions and other drugs that ever become "legal" to use i.e. Physician Assisted Suicide, etc.
Could cause pharmacies to discriminate against employing any pharmacists unable to fill medications that cause abortions.
prayers and presence are needed!
A national effort to silence conscience was started by certain interest groups and However, these groups & the media have portrayed the issue to be about Plan B (a.k.a. scientifically incorrect euphemisms "morning-after-pill" or "emergency contraception"). Despite excess accessibility of Plan B, via Planned Parenthood or internet overnight delivery, dispensing at hospitals, doctors' offices, clinics, pharmacies, high schools, & its recent approval to be sold Over-The-Counter (without a physician's prescription), these groups are trying to impose their will on WA pharmacists to dispense Plan B, on demand, without question or any kind of professional personal judgment.
manufacturer states that Plan B can prevent implantation (of the
human embryo to the womb), thus, causing a chemical abortion.
Current Washington State Law states, that no person may be required,
in any circumstances to participate in the performance of an
abortion, if such person objects to so doing. Furthermore, no
person may be discriminated against in employment because of the
person's refusal to participate in the termination. (RCW 9.02.150)
The WA State Board of Pharmacy composed a Draft Rule that impinges on this right, for WA pharmacists. However, before this Draft can become official, a Hearing needs to be held, to consider public concerns regarding this Draft.
Come, support us in NUMBERS at this Hearing, whether or not you testify.
WHO? Presence of all supportive family & friends, whether or not they testify.
