Pharmacists sue Washington state for forcing them to sell morning after pill...

"The encyclical of Pope Paul VI on birth control is true and must be followed by mankind. There shall be no rationalization of sin.” - Our Lady of the Roses, October 2, 1976

LifeSiteNews reported on July 27, 2007:

Two Washington pharmacists and a pharmacy owner have sued the State of Washington for trampling on their right to freedom of conscience with the new regulations forcing pharmacists to dispense the "morning after" pill.

Pharmacists Rhonda Mesler and Margo Thelen, accompanied by the Stormans Inc. that owns Ralph's Thriftway in Olympia, filed the lawsuit in the federal court on Wednesday. They are suing the State for forcing them to choose "between their livelihoods and their deeply held religious and moral beliefs," the Associated Press reports. This decision follows a State ruling earlier this year that took effect on Thursday. The new ruling requires pharmacists to dispense contraceptives despite any objections of conscience.

The regulations, adopted by the Board of Pharmacy and the State, demand that pharmacy owners provide and dispense contraceptives as long as a customer requests the drug. The law does not consider religious views or reservations of conscience as legitimate excuses for not providing the pill. A pharmacist can only opt out of filling out the prescription if a co-worker will do it for them. As Washington KNDO/KNDU reports, the new law gives a customer the "right" to contraceptives, a right that supersedes the pharmacists own right to freedom of conscience.

The plaintiffs believe that "human life begins with fertilization and that only God should determine the beginning and end of life," the Olympian reports. In addition, the lawsuit argues that the new pharmacy rules contradict the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which forbids religious discrimination against employees. The rules also fail to take into account small pharmacies that do not have enough staff to fill in and dispense contraceptives for those employees who decide to refrain on grounds of conscience.

The Board of Pharmacy adopted the new regulations after complaints were being made that pharmacists were refusing to fill out prescriptions for contraceptives such as the Plan B "emergency contraception. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Plan B last August as an over the counter contraceptive. It became available to women over 18 who provide ID while minors needed to obtain a prescription from the doctor. Pro-lifers have vehemently opposed the drug, however, because it also acts as an abortifacient, preventing already fertilized eggs from implanting on the lining of the uterus.

In a letter to the Seattle Times this April, Seattle Archbishop Alexander J. Brunett, voiced his indignation at a demeaning cartoon published by the Times that ridiculed the Catholic Church's opposition to Plan B. Referring to the controversy over the Pharmacy Board's ruling, Brunett stated, "the debate is not about the church imposing its views.  Opposition to the rule by believers and non-believers alike is based on the right of conscience, a right affirmed in our federal and state constitutions."

He emphatically underlined the point once again, saying, "First, the Church does not seek to impose its views in the public square, but it does insist on the right of conscience.  The pharmacy board has undermined this time-tested American principle."

"We warned you over and over again, through years of visitations upon earth--My Mother going to and fro to warn you, that those who have given themselves over to debasement, by the practice of homosexuality, birth control, abortion and all other aberrations that bring sorrow to My Mother's heart--this must be stopped now. There shall be no excuse accepted in Heaven by the saints, nor by My Mother and I, or the Eternal Father and the Holy Ghost, for what you are doing upon earth now." - Jesus, June 16, 1987

The awesome Bayside Prophecies...  http://www.tldm.org/Bayside/default.htm  
These prophecies came from Jesus, Mary, and the saints to Veronica Lueken at Bayside, NY, from 1968 to 1995:

SIXTY MILLION
"I say this for this reason: the Eternal Father is much disturbed at the numbers of abortions being committed throughout your country and the world. These numbers go upwards to fifty to sixty million in one year throughout the world." - Our Lady,
June 18, 1986

TREATED AS GARBAGE
"O My child, My tears fall upon you all when I see all of the innocent little babies being slaughtered . . . cast into garbage pails like nothing but dirt and scum. They are living human beings! And all murderers shall get their just recompense." - Our Lady,
March 18, 1983

DOCTORS
"Doctors now are profaning their profession, those who have given themselves over to destroying human life in abortions." - Jesus,
June 6, 1987

FOULEST OF DEEDS
"Our hearts are torn because of the wanton murder of the young by evil man. Abortion, My children, is murder, the most foulest of deeds, that is punishable by death! And what is worse than death of the soul?
     "I say unto you, as your Mother, that any man or woman who performs or takes part of this abomination of the murder of the unborn shall be given a heavy penance upon earth, or if this penance is not given upon earth, that person found guilty in the eyes of his God shall suffer eternal damnation in the fires of hell." - Our Lady,
December 28, 1976 

TORMENT
"The torment that will be visited upon those who murder the innocent shall be eternal damnation and feasting their eyes upon the murdered souls." - Our Lady, May 10, 1972

SAINTS CRY OUT FOR PUNISHMENT
"Oh, the greatest of sorrow is upon Our hearts because of the loss of the little ones. Your country, My child, and many countries throughout your world, shall do great penance for the murders of the young, the abortions, the murders being committed in your country. The saints in Heaven cry out for punishment upon a wicked generation. Never in the past, in all the slaughters of history, has there been such wanton killing of the young and the innocent! I say unto you, as your God, you shall be brought down to your knees! You, evil mankind, you shall be cleansed in a bloodbath!” - Jesus, February 1, 1977

Insist even with obstructions, insist that your children always wear a sacramental. One day they will understand that they will repel the demons."
    On February 1, 1974, Our Lady said, "My children, know the value of these sacramentals. Guard your children well.
