A federal judge says two pharmacists in Washington state do NOT have to provide an emergency contraceptive drug if they don't want to.
FOX News Radio's Jessica Rosenthal reports:
The judge says Washington state cannot force pharmacists to go against their religious beliefs and provide Plan B as an emergency contraceptive. The state's rule said pharmacies have to provide all medications that are in high demand. But plaintiff attorney Luke Goodrich says the judge noted there are secular exceptions.
(Goodrich) "If a drug is not in stock, of if it's not profitable or they don't like the patient's insurance company...but these regulations don't allow them to refer for religious reasons and that the judge said rendered these rules unconstitutional."
It's unclear if the state will appeal the ruling.
