Missouri  Right to Life Press Release

For Immediate Release
April 4, 2013

MISSOURI RIGHT TO LIFE
APPLAUDS SENATE FOR PASSAGE OF
PHARMACY PROTECTION LEGISLATION

The following statement can be attributed to MRL President, Pam Fichter:

Missouri Right to Life applauds those in the Missouri Senate who voted for SB 126 sponsored by Senator David Sater, District 29. This legislation simply says that licensed pharmacies cannot be required to carry or maintain in inventory of any specific drug or device. This will give protection to pharmacy owners from lawsuits by those who would seek to force them to carry abortifacient drugs or devices.

Although this legislation is not specific to the abortion issue, the broad language covers pharmacy owners who would seek to stand on their religious and moral beliefs not to carry abortifacient drugs or devices.

We encourage the House to take up and pass this legislation upon its arrival.
