Pharmacists can't be forced to give "morning after pills" if they have religious objections: Illinois appellate court


An interesting ruling came in from the Illinois appellate court stating that the state cannot force pharmacies and pharmacists to sell "morning after pills" if they have religious objections. Many have hailed this as a great victory for religious freedom and for pro-life health professionals. 

The Huffington Post has reported the details relating to this story here.  If a court in India gave a judgement like this, can you imagine the hue and cry that would have been raised particularly the usual bouts of outrage on social media sites? Now that would be highly entertaining for lawyers and everyone in general, isn't it?

Interesting post. Loved it. Things that are taken lightly here are taken very seriously in India.
