I have been trying to find out more information on exactly what the Church teaches in regards to pharmaceuticals. I know very well the teachings of *Humanae Vitae * and have been in classes studying Christopher West’s Good News About Sex and Marriage, but I’m a new pharmacy technician and was wondering how to handle situations that could be controversial, such as selling birth control and other abortificents. I have no problem standing up for my faith, as I was fired from my previous job for being pro-life in regards to Planned Parenthood, but I want to know how to tell the difference between someone who sincerely needs a medicine (i.e. birth control) for medicinal needs rather than just someone who is trying to avoid getting pregnant, and what to do in that situation.
Thanks and God Bless!
