Nampa, Idaho Pharmacist Thinks God Wants Her to be an Executioner

January 13, 2011

PillboxAn Idaho Press-Tribune report brings us the news that on the basis of “conscience,” a Nampa, Idaho pharmacist refused to fill a prescription for something that would have stopped uterine bleeding after childbirth or an abortion.

The pharmacist believed she had the right to be told why the person was taking the medication. This, of course, is an absolute violation of patient confidentiality. So when the person told her that, she refused to fill the prescription. We have good reason to assume that if she had been told that the medication was for post-abortion, she would still have refused. And apparently, as a pharmacist working for the good of the public, would have been serenely — and judgementally — content for the woman to bleed to death.

‘Cause this is exactly the sort of thing Jesus would have done. We know darn well that when that woman with an “issue of blood” touched the hem of his garment, he whirled around and demanded angrily, “How did you get that bleeding?? Via childbirth? Or abortion? Because if you got it by having an abortion, I’m bloody well going to let you bleed to death, you sinner!”

Wait, what? You mean…Jesus didn’t react that way?

And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind [him], and touched the hem of his garment:

For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.

But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.

Matthew 9:20-22

Oh, but she was a woman of faith. Otherwise, Jesus would have just let her bleed to death. Right? Right??

    Doubtless this pharmacist likewise ignores the way Jesus recommended the faithful pray — in their closets! How much ya wanna bet she hands out Chick Tracts in her spare time, or maybe even has a stack on the counter at the drug store?

    And I wonder just how big a crucifix/cross she wears every day at work … maybe hefty enough to do a bit of smiting along with the prying into prescription justifications?

    It’s a good thing for folk such as her that *I* won’t be the one rendering final verdicts on the Last Day!

      Yeah, but don’t you hope, sometimes, that you might be allowed to watch?? 😀
