Boots the Chemist

#1
A woman was not allowed to have the "morning after" pill because it offended the Chemist's religion. What is happening to this country?

:?

That's just not right, but... Links to story/source?

I'm sure (hope) Boots will be taking action against this type of thing. What's next, "I'm not going to fill this prescription for antibiotics to treat your STD because you deserve it"?? Probably stop selling condoms, and lubricant too. damn stupid.

I wonder if it would it have been more acceptable if it had been a private pharmacy and the chappy or chappette in charge had just made the decision not to stock the pill?

At first glance this story does seem harsh, but we all end up doing some things on the basis that our employer feels that they are either a) acceptable or b) expedient (whether economically or militarily). Should a person be forced to resign their job (which is the final sanction an employee could take, outside of litigation, if they disagree with their employer’s policy) or simply be allowed to make their own stand with respect to the small part of their boss’ business plan with which they have issues?

After all that brave medic fellow from the LONDONS resigned his lucrative TA job over the fact that UK PLC had decided to invade Iraq, but wouldn’t he have been better just to have a chat with his CO and explain that he liked being a medic but that there was no place for him saving lives in Shaibah? His courage in the face of adverse comment was and remains exemplary and he is, I’m sure, a source of pride for the soldiers in his erstwhile unit; a slightly less extreme line might, though, have allowed him to continue serving.

Oh and Moody, we never did find out if you were getting reamed over the table or not…

They - not just Boots - do ask questions before serving with OTC items. E.g. Tagamet please. Have you used this before/what other medication are you taking sort of thing. Sometimes ring a ding and wave item at the boss person.

Cheers ORC, I was referring more to the pharmacist choosing who/what to serve depending on morals/ethics. I have a rough idea how it's meant to work as I did my Pharmacy counter assistant qualifications for my saturday job during 6th form. :wink:

Used to get some "quality individuals" in there...

A quick search on Google and voila:

I WON'T SELL PILL, IT'S AGAINST MY RELIGION

Feb 27 2005

By Susie Boniface


A WOMAN was refused the morning after pill because the chemist was Muslim and said it was "against her religion".

Katie Richardson, 23, tried to buy the emergency pill over the counter in a branch of Boots in East London, but was told by the pharmacist Sabina Easmin: "I'm sorry I can't sell it to you because it's against my beliefs."

Women must take the pill up to 72 hours after unprotected sex to prevent pregnancy. But the pill is far from foolproof and works best if taken within 24 hours.

Last night Katie said: "I was amazed she refused to give me it. If she has religious objections, why do the job?"

Katie, who works as a marketing assistant, wanted to take the pill the day after having sex with her 24-year-old fiance Adam Rowley.

The condom they were using had split and the couple wanted to make sure there was no unplanned pregnancy.

"I had been to the same store to get a morning after pill one time before so I didn't imagine there would be a problem," said Katie, of Stratford, East London. "I queued and asked to see the pharmacist and a lady in a Muslim headscarf came over.

"I explained my problem and asked for the morning after pill but she said she could not serve it to me.

"When I asked why not, she just said it was down to her discretion and she could withhold it if she wanted."

There was no other pharmacist on duty in the store who could prescribe the medicine.

And as further delays could reduce the effectiveness of the pill, Katie raced to find another chemist. Luckily, there was another pharmacy nearby where she was able to buy the £17 pill after filling in a questionnaire. "The chemist there said it was the first he'd heard about someone refusing to sell it on religious grounds," said Katie. "Other girls should be made aware of this.

"If there hadn't been somewhere else to get the pill I'd have been stuck. Where else do you go for help?"

Asked why she had refused to serve Katie the Pill, Sabina said: "Because of my religious beliefs I don't supply it."

WHAT BOOTS SAY
A pharmacist can refuse treatment based either on their professional judgement or for ethical or religious reasons.

Other religions, such as Catholics, can also object to selling the morning after pill and I'm sure most people would understand why. It is very rare but when it does happen we require the pharmacist to explain their reasons and point the customer in the direction of someone who can help them.

WHAT KORAN SAYS
Muslims interpret the Koran's teachings differently on the topic of morning after pills. Moderates believe that medical intervention to abort a child is permissible if the mother's life is in danger, whereas devout Muslims hold that a mother who dies in childbirth is like a holy warrior, and therefore automatically admitted to heaven. Strict Muslims ban abortion, while moderates believe it is allowed up to 120 days after conception.
