Jon Carroll Rocks!
Go read Jon Carroll's column:|
Memo to wingnuts: The pharmacists who want "freedom of conscience" to refuse to fill legal prescriptions for women seeking contraceptive devices are no different from the diner owners who wanted "freedom of conscience" not to serve blacks.Read the whole column - great stuff.
This decade seems to be all about licensing bigotry and calling it conscience. It's an old argument, but it still has resonance: If men could take a morning-after pill, there would be no "freedom of conscience" issues. If I pop a Viagra and accidentally inseminate a woman, who gets the blame?
Hint: Not me.
