If the asshole wants to "take a stand" tell us his name. Don't just call him "the pharmacist", call him out.

Hey force-birthers, if you have issues with medications that allow women to control their own reproductive health then maybe don't go into a field that deals directly with women and their reproductive health.

Arteaga explained that there were other pharmacists at the Walgreens when the man denied filling her prescription, yet he did not refer her medical needs to another employee.

And that, dear friends, is just being an asshole with a faux beliefs trying to impose it on others.

Twenty bucks says this guy goes home from his job forcing his "morals" on people, sits in his recliner, and whacks it to bestiality porn.

Maybe. I am picturing a scene where some anti-choice farknut pharmacist, seizing the opportunity to impose his 'ethics' on a woman in despair:

WOMAN (in tears) "I need this medication."
PHARMACIST: "I cannot fill this! But I will instead refer you to my manager! AHAHAHAHAHA!"
WOMAN:
PHARMACIST: "Take THAT!"

I'm sure will have the usual group of pill baristas on here telling us why their opinion matters equally, if not more than, somebody who actually went to medical school. Walgreens should tell this douchenozzle to either do his damn job, or go work the cosmetics counter.

To be fair, it is kinda funny when it's pastors and other good "Christians" who get caught doing it. The schadenfreude is satisfying. And god bless the cocksuckers because I don't like doing it. My jaw gets sore. It really is a blow JOB as far as I'm concerned because there's a considerable amount of work involved.

Into a wall and leave it there as a message to any others that want to be sanctimonious shiat stains like this guy instead of handing it off to another pharmacist.

LOL.  If it's a means of pointing out the hypocrisy, I'll allow it.

Cosmetics are used by women of ill-repute to signal their willingness to have sex with strangers for money, so that isn't an option for him.

"I promise to devote myself to a lifetime of service to others through the profession of pharmacy. In fulfilling this vow:
I will consider the welfare of humanity and relief of suffering my primary concerns.
I will apply my knowledge, experience, and skills to the best of my ability to assure optimal outcomes for my patients.
I will respect and protect all personal and health information entrusted to me.
I will accept the lifelong obligation to improve my professional knowledge and competence.
I will hold myself and my colleagues to the highest principles of our profession's moral, ethical and legal conduct.
I will embrace and advocate changes that improve patient care.
I will utilize my knowledge, skills, experiences, and values to prepare the next generation of pharmacists.
I take these vows voluntarily with the full realization of the responsibility with which I am entrusted by the public."

Huh, would you look at that! Nothing in there says anything about doing things for Jesus.

Exactly. Morals be damned.

The little prick just wanted the satisfaction of making a grown woman cry, before, no doubt, going home and laughing about it on his favourite image board.

Get  a lawyer, sue that POS for withholding prescribed treatment that could endanger your life.

///like a good judgmental christian

As a retired medical professional I can say with some assurance that I didn't hear or see any overt episodes of any other "religious" HC person imposing their personal beliefs on a patient or family member, while at work.
This shiathead really does need to be disciplined and/or fired for refusing to fill the prescription. Even if the drug offends your conscience at least one other medical professional in a higher responsibility position (doctor) deemed it necessary. What this asshole is doing is saying that his conscience is more important than filling a valid prescription. For that reason alone he needs to step aside and let a coworker fill it, change his profession or have his ass fired. As the employer, Walgreens bear some responsibility here too.

If anyone Yelps, here is the link to this pharmacy

I'd like to point out that people can walk into a Costo without a membership for prescriptions, ocular services and hearing services.  I could be wrong, but I don't think one would see this kind of asshattery being condoned at the big box store.

The comment about her experience unknowingly posted on her Facebook page, which she deleted upon discovery.

I think everyone is missing the scariest part of this story: comments on the internet have become self-aware and are already doing things without realizing it!

Their idea of free speech is literally that they can say anything they like free of consequence and everyone else has to keep their mouth shut.

Now I'm not suggesting that a very good friend of the family gives them a coupon for a dinner at a very public place (with video recordings), makes sure that there's a mountain of 'it couldn't be us' evidence to support this woman/family & then goes and meets Mr Pharmacist as he's getting off of work with a bat to shatter his kneecaps... (well, follows him home, don't need that on Walgreen's cameras...)

Not suggesting it at all, but I wouldn't be overly sad if it happened.

Suing him into oblivion will have to suffice I suppose.
 
2018-06-24 06:38:32 PM  
If he can't do his job, because he's an a$$hole, he should be required to have someone available to do it for him.

This. If he wants the freedom to be an asshole, then others should be free to deny him service.

Walgreens said in a statement Saturday that pharmacists are allowed to step away from filling a prescription anytime they have a moral objection under company policy.

WTF?

Her license should be revoked and she should be banned from pretending to work in health care forever.

Circusdog320: Fire the pharmacist


This ... and maybe a nationwide boycott of Walgreens until they do fire him and implement a policy that if you don't want to fill scrip over "ethical" concerns ... go work somewhere else?

And who wants to bet that this particular pharmacist probably doesn't have overarching "ethical concerns" about filling scrips for obviously over-prescribed opioids?

I'm not a litigious person, but this dunderfark deserves to have his ass handed to him in court. Hell, I'm almost positive SWLC has a pending suit against Walgreens in either Arizona or New Mexico for the same damn thing.
 
2018-06-24 06:50:42 PM  
If the prospect of handing out medications conflicts with your morals, you may want to consider a different career path. When I enlisted for the infantry, I couldn't go to 1SG and say "sorry Top, I didn't realize I may have to shoot people". I'd get carted off to the stockade at the very least.

I don't see where there could be a moral objection to this anyway, unless the farker was just looking for a fight. The embryo was already dead. The little soul he's so concerned over has already fled to Heaven.

This isn't even a case of handing out slut pills, womb brooms, mom bombs, Maybe Baby, or Preg-Not. All he's doing now is putting the mother's life at risk, which is against just about every occupational oath and religion I'm aware of. I suppose he gets some points from his 20-person church that he stugg it to some whore housewife who went around having unprotected sex with her husband of all people, and $DEITY decided to issue a recall on that kid.

Walgreen should sh*tcan him and tell him 'goo luck with that independent pharmacy you are going to be opening."
 
2018-06-24 06:57:39 PM  
Great,

My wife is a pharmacist for Walgreens.  I told her about this story and she says whenever she gets an Rx for this medication (probably Misoprostol ), she just streamlines it through because she figures the person getting it is having/had a miscarriage and there's no reason to add any more stress onto that poor woman than what she's already going through.

So please don't give the Walgreens pharmacists shiat on account of one of them attempting to take a moral high ground...they're under enough stress as it is.
 
2018-06-24 06:59:15 PM  
Well, I guess evil is technically an ethic.
 
2018-06-24 07:00:25 PM  
Yes, let's return to the good old days when young women with failed pregnancies could expect to go septic and die. Like Jesus wanted, apparently.
 
2018-06-24 07:01:28 PM  
It would be a shame should he suffer a medical emergency and the first person there does not assist him on account of their moral belief that some people should die.

/that's just unconscious knowledge
