Tell Pharmacists to Obey the Law
- Issue: The Washington State Board of Pharmacy is considering adopting a formal policy that would allow pharmacists in our state to refuse to fill prescriptions because of their personal beliefs. This is likely to result in pharmacists in our state refusing to fill women’s legal prescriptions for birth control, especially emergency contraception. Pharmacists should not be permitted to establish barriers that would prevent individuals from getting their lawfully prescribed drugs and treatment.
