MN Mom Sues Pharmacies After Employees Refuse to Fill Birth Control Prescription

Again people using their job to push their religious beliefs on others.  They use their profession to force other people to live by the doctrines of their religion.   They have no regard for other beliefs or needs.   This is not religious freedom, this is religious tyranny.   If your faith prevents you from doing your job, get a different job.   Hugs

MN Mom Sues Pharmacies After Employees Refuse to Fill Birth Control Prescription

Anderson’s contraception had broken one night earlier this year, and she didn’t want to take the chance of getting pregnant, so she quickly got a birth control prescription from her doctor. Yet the first two pharmacists she visited in Aitkin County refused to do their jobs.

 

… in a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Aitkin County, with the help of Gender Justice, a legal nonprofit, Anderson alleged the pharmacist George Badeaux refused to fill it based on his “beliefs” and “warned” against trying another nearby pharmacy. Anderson contends this was sex discrimination and violates the Minnesota Human Rights Act.

Anderson said she went to the CVS in Aitkin and was denied service again. Eventually, a third pharmacy in Brainerd gave her the medication. Anderson later filed the lawsuit and a complaint with the Minnesota Board of Pharmacy.

By the way, that CVS pharmacist, according to the lawsuit, said she called the third pharmacy and “they could not fill the prescription either.” But when Anderson went to that third location, the pharmacist, who confirmed speaking to the CVS person, said there was no problem at all getting the pill to Anderson. So it’s possible the CVS pharmacist straight-up lied.

Anderson eventually got the pill… from a location 50 miles from her house. Just as a “massive snowstorm” was hitting the area.

  1. She may have used sex discrimination in her law suit but it was plain and simple religious discrimination.

    And THIS is what my post on Religious Liberty was all about. Yet Christians simply refuse to see it/believe it/accept it. So long as their religion is being honored, it’s religious liberty. But when it involves something they don’t believe or accept … it’s religious discrimination. Grrrrr!

    • Hello Nan. As long as their right to force others to live as they do? I am reading the comments on your post right now. The thing is you do have religious freedom, but you do not have a right to a certain job. If your job conflicts with your religion, change your job. People who cry religious freedom really mean the right to use my religion to oppress others. Hugs
