    Great quote! I agree completely.

    Then there are those doctors, nurses and pharmacists, who enter their professions in an effort to gain control of your decision making abilities, so they can meter out their own version of morality. Therefore, they will never seek any other profession. They are EXACTLY where they want to be! Possibly, their schooling was subsidized by religious organizations.

    Conspiracy Theory Number 27 🙂

    For Rob – there are pharmacists in the USA (and presumably elsewhere) who have decided that on “moral” grounds they can decide not to fill a prescription for, say, the morning after birth control pill, or any birth control pills, or prophylactics. These moral stalwarts ought do what the Mercury says and find a new job since they can’t fulfill the requirements of their current one.
