The Next Step Continued
Every week we see evidence that it will only be a matter of time before those who love abortion and all of its accouterments will be going door to door in your community, demanding to speak to your children without your presence and giving them information about how to obtain abortions and contraception without your permission.

We last saw health officials in New York City handing out city-made condoms at NYC subway stations and other areas of high pedestrian traffic.

Now we see Planned Parenthood has instituted a "Pill Patrol" in an effort to encourage their supporters to visit local health pharmacies in cognito and see what kind of resistance they get in trying to purchase Plan B, the so called "Emergency Contraception."

If they can purchase the Plan B Pill, then all is good with the pharmacy and they receive good marks from Planned Parenthood.

But watch out if you have a religiously based objection to providing Plan B to someone who comes into your pharmacy. As a part of their campaign to encourage (mandate) pharmacies to carry Plan B, Planned Parenthood now wants to set policy for pharmacies nationwide, and they don't want people with religious convictions involved, as we see from the below excerpt of their "policy":

2. Refusals: Pharmacy chains should institute a policy and set of procedures that ensure that - even in the event that an employee has a genuinely held religious belief against dispensing or distributing contraception — the pharmacy will ensure that customers receive valid, lawful, medically appropriate contraception in-store (on location), without discrimination or delay (e.g., within the normal timeframe for distributing an OTC product or filling a walk-in prescription, as appropriate) and without judgment or regard for the number of refills prescribed.
Yes, if you have religious based beliefs on contraception and abortion that prevent these things from taking place, then you are the bad guy and are "harming" women's health. They don't say what specifically should happen to the offending religious believer but I am sure they would love to see them fired or disciplined, as has already happened in the past.

And what is truly outrageous is that all of this flies in the face of a recent study done by a prestigious medical journal, The Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, that said, among other things that, "increased access to emergency contraception pills enhance use but has not been shown to reduce unintended pregnancy rates." It also said that "no study has shown that increased access to this method reduces unintended pregnancy or abortion rates on a population level” and that “the consistency of their primary findings is hard to ignore."

And yet they are ignored. As so now they have gone from subway stations to local pharmacies. The march to your house is getting closer and closer.
