Springfield, IL (LifeNews.com) – The Illinois Supreme Court last month gave pro-life pharmacists a victory when it determined that they can proceed with their lawsuit seeking to overturn a mandate Gov. Rod Blagojevich put in place. The governor’s order makes them fill all prescriptions, including those for the morning after pill.
The pharmacists objected to being forced to fill orders for the drug on both moral and religious grounds and because the Plan B drug can sometimes cause an abortion.
The state’s high court said the religious objections of pro-life health professionals must be considered by the Illinois courts and sent the case back to the trial court.
“This is a major victory for pro-life health care professionals who have been in legal limbo for years,” Francis Manion, a senior attorney for the ACLJ, told LifeNews.com.
Another thing we can thank the allegedly corrupt governor for!
Maybe now sanity and the conscience clause will once again come to Illinois. Let us pray!
