A federal judge halts state's morning-after pill rules

I'm glad common sense has prevailed -- you can't force pharmacists to sell something they goes against conscience. This is America not China:

A federal judge has suspended Washington’s requirement that pharmacists sell “morning-after” birth control pills.

The injunction says pharmacists can refuse to sell the morning-after pill, referring a customer instead to a nearby source.

It’s part of a lawsuit by two pharmacists and a drugstore owner, who claim in a lawsuit that the state’s birth-control sales rules violated their civil rights.
