I have a friend who is in training to be a pharmacy tech. She is a Protestant who is also strongly pro-life. However, she just thought of something last night that is really troubling her, and asked me for advice.
At work we have a drug called “Plan B” also known as “The Morning After Pill” for more info read here abort73.com/abortion_facts/which_birth_control_methods_cause_abortion/
Basically we can sell it to anyone 18 or older without a prescription. I strongly believe it is a form of abortion, however it hadn’t dawned on me until earlier tonight…if I sell it to a person who is requesting to buy it am I not just as guilty as a nurse or DR on the other end holding a knife at an abortion clinic? The thought makes me sick. However I am not sure what to do, should I continue to sell it, or should I tell my manager my convictions and let her ring up the next customer who asks to buy it? It’s really troubling me.
I am trying to give her advice on what to do, but I have never thought of this issue much before, and so I don’t know what to tell her exactly. I did give her a couple of links that I had come across recommended elsewhere (www.pfli.org and www.ncbcenter.org) and suggested she do tell her manager her convictions…However, as for anything more specific at the moment, I didn’t know what to say, other than to ask her if she minded if I posted her question to a message board (to which she agreed).
If anybody could help with some advice, it would be very greatly appreciated. Thanks!
