Petula Dvorark, Washington Post's designated church-basher, commemorated the closure of a Virginian "pro-life" pharmacy with snide glee in her April 13 column.
"The Divine Mercy Care Pharmacy in Chantilly proudly and purposefully limited what it would stock on its shelves. But it turns out that no birth control pills, no condoms, no porn, no tobacco and even no makeup added up to one thing: No customers," Dvorak wrote.
"John T. Bruchalski, president of Divine Mercy Care and the doctor who opened the pharmacy, then had to close it, said he wanted a place where pharmacists could bring their conscience into the store, rather than hang it up at the door when they entered,'" she continued.

“Without condoms and porn you just lose all your 15 year old customers” boasted a competing pharmacy.
“Petula.” Perfect name for a snide little lefty. An ill-tempered, petulant child.
What does “conscience” have to do with it? A pharmacists job is to dispense drugs as per orders. Can’t do it? There are plenty of other professions for someone bright enough to be a pharmacist.
So the job of a pharmacist is simply to rubberstamp drug orders? Hardly.
A pharmacist has a duty not to supply harmful drugs. That duty overrides anything else. This includes contraceptives which kill unborn children.
dispense drugs as per orders
I am a pharmacist, but I wasn’t aware that I was in the military taking ‘orders’ from doctors. What do you know about it, anyway? I find this story very sad, and I hate my profession more and more with each passing year precisely because of attitudes like yours.
If a pharmacist's employer wants him to sell drugs he doesn't want to sell, he should seek employment elsewhere. If a customer wants drugs that neither the pharmacist nor his employer want to sell, the customer should seek another pharmacy and the pharmacy should seek other customers. The joy of free association.
