Here’s your antibiotics, your change, and a short sermon on the morality of birth control…

October 31, 2007

His royal Pope-ness once again wades head first into the real world:

Pope Benedict XVI said Monday that pharmacists have a right to use conscientious objection to avoid dispensing emergency contraception or euthanasia drugs and told them they should also inform patients of the ethical implications of using such drugs.

Benedict said conscientious objector status would “enable them not to collaborate directly or indirectly in supplying products that have clearly immoral purposes such as, for example, abortion or euthanasia.”

The catholic church also disapproves of birth control – so what next? Contraceptives?

Great. Now we just need some Jehovah’s Witness doctors who who won’t do blood transfusions, and maybe some Christian Science paramedics who won’t do anything.
