14. Why stop with birth control?
Pharmacists could use the same culture of life logic in refusing to fill prescriptions for pain killers because someone might die of an overdose, or for anti-depression because some people might commit suicide, or anti-acne drugs because someone might commit suicide.

They need to find another line of work.

As for me I won't be buying anything, cough drops, lipstick, hair coloring or cat food from any drug store that has a pharmacist who refuses to supply a prescription for a legal drug.
