I definitely think Barry should study some of our Governors...he could learn a lot from them. Governor Brewer of Arizona knows how to protect her border, and our conscience rights, and Sam Brownback is protecting conscience rights in his state of Kansas. All Barry knows to do is trample our rights.
Kansas Governor Sam Brownback has signed a new law reinforcing the conscience rights of pharmacists who object to distributing drugs that could cause abortions. Atta boy Sam!
On Monday Brownback signed the Heath Care Rights of Conscience Act, which bars anyone from being forced to prescribe or administer a drug they “reasonably believe” might be used to kill an unborn child, according to the Kansas City Star.
The bill’s sponsor, state Rep. Lance Kinser, said the measure was aimed at the abortion drug RU-486, while opponents point out it could also be used to prevent administration of emergency contraception, which the Mayo Clinic says can keep a young embryo from implanting in the uterus, the Star notes.
The measure would also likely protect conscientious objections against “ella,” a drug related to RU-486 that has nonetheless been approved by the FDA as “emergency contraception,” and is advertised to work for up to a week after intercourse.
Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi and South Dakota already have laws that allow pharmacists to refuse to fill a prescription for emergency contraceptives.
