Since you made the first assertion do you have evidence to support it? Say survey data of doctors and pharmacists?
In 1998, the American Pharmacists Association (APhA) developed a policy on this issue, which states: "APhA recognizes the individual pharmacist's right to exercise conscientious refusal and supports the establishment of systems to ensure patients' access to legally prescribed therapy without compromising the pharmacist's right of conscientious refusal." A recent Pharmacy Times survey, which is available at www.pharmacytimes.com/article.cfm?ID=2138, suggests that many practicing pharmacists support this position.
