Plan B One-Step, the most common morning-after pill will now be sold next to everyday drugstore items. The Obama administration has decided to ditch efforts to appeal the federal court ruling that the government must allow over-the-counter sales of Plan B to anyone, regardless of their age.
Pharmacists, in the past have had the ability to invoke a "conscience clause," due to personal or religious beliefs to turn customers down, as long as they refer them to another pharmacist or to a nearby pharmacy. Conscience clauses have been in place since the morning-after pill hit the market in the late 1990s. The question now is whether to extend the option of a conscience clause to all drugstore employees.
What’s your take? Should drugstore employees be allowed to deny the sale of Plan B due to personal or religious objections?

Finders Keepers is what many of us would claim if we happened to find a large sum of money. Recently, a 10 year old boy found $10,000 in a drawer in a Kansas City, Mo. hotel.

But by sifting through this so-called metadata, they may identify potential leads with respect to folks who might engage in terrorism”.
