Being Unconscience

So, the Republicans are the party of smaller government and more freedom. You mean like this?

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback (R) signed a bill yesterday that will allow pharmacists in the state to refuse to fill a prescription they think could be used to induce abortion. But since the “conscience” measure says they cannot be required to provide a drug or devise [sic] that they think “may result in the termination of a pregnancy” — but does not define which drug in particular — the law’s opponents say it could allow a pharmacist to interfere with a woman’s health care by refusing to distribute birth control or emergency contraception.

Well, that seems to accomplish both goals: less government and more freedom to play god with other peoples’ lives. The fact that more women could end up dead or permanently scarred from self-induced abortions is a small price to pay when you’re thinking about the Baby Jesus. Right?
