The Target Culture of Life 

So now a pharmacist at a Target in Fenton, MO refused to fill a prescription for a woman's emergency contraceptive, claiming that it was "her right not to" do so and directing the woman to the Walgreen's across the street.

[Remember: Walgreen's = Babykillers.]

John Aravosis hilariously and aptly remarks:

Who's next?
- Target pharmacists who don't want to fill prescriptions for customers who killed Christ?
- Target pharmacists who only dispense HIV medicine to "innocent victims" of AIDS?
- Target pharmacists who want proof that women were really raped, and that they didn't "deserve it," before they sell them emergency contraception?
- Or how about Target pharmacists (or cashiers) who are simply Jehovah's Witnesses? Can they refuse to sell any medicine to anyone, even aspirin?

I think the panoply of "special rights" for conscientious pharmacists goes even farther than that. Can anyone think of other possible manifestations of religious practice among Target pharmacists?
