19. I'm struck by how many people clearly haven't read the OP.

If you read it through, you'll see that (s)he isn't advocating forcing doctors to perform executions, they're using that as an analogy for forcing pharmacists to prescribe birth control.

For what it's worth, I think that the state should refuse to employ or do business with anyone who wants to refuse to do so, but that they shouldn't prohibit such people from running private businesses.
