67. ....technically no.
As long as it is not an emergency, we can refuse (and when will this ever happen in a retail pharmacy.) As long as there is another pharmacy nearby, we can refuse.

Now if said pharmacist is in a remote hospital pharmacy, a girl was raped, he's the only pharmacist, and the ER doc wanted emergency contraceptive - that's a whole nother ball of wax.
