Pharamacist refuses to hand over MAP

Briefing. The right of pharmacists, like doctors, to refuse to cooperate in abortion is a big issue in the US, but this UK case is unusual. Referring a customer to a less conscientious pharmacist would, of course, be cooperation in evil.

From SPUC: An unidentified pharmacist in Staffordshire, England, reportedly refused to supply morning-after pills to a 26-year-old married woman on grounds of conscience. A spokeswoman for the pharmacists' professional body said that their ethical code required practitioners who objected to providing such drugs to refer customers to colleagues who would. Mrs Sarah Luke, the person requesting the pills at Lloyds pharmacy, Hednesford, expressed anger. [icCannock, 2 August]

Mrs Luke expressed anger. Our society is warped, what about your child, Mrs Luke?

So now catholic pharmacists are being directly told to conspire in a latae sententiae excommunicable act ?
Does anyone hear any cries of outrage from 'Liberty' ? Are there any vociferous MPs hogging the tv reporter's mic and camera?
As always in this country , religious liberty is something that anyone should have a right to EXCEPT catholics.

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
