Mercy Me: No Birth Control for You...

Divine Mercy Care, a new drug store at a Chantilly, Virginia strip mall is putting its faith in an unconventional business plan: No candy. No sodas. And no birth control.

I wonder if they sell Viagra? Or protease inhibitors or reverse transcriptase inhibitors? Or Halloween costumes? The list of possibly offending substances or items can go on and on....I can appreciate that conscience and morals of a health care worker should be considered, so long as patients are being cared for, not overburdened by long drives through rural towns and not being shamed for what someone presumes to be an immoral lifestyle choice.

If you had neglected to mention Divine Mercy Care is a drug store, I would have mistaken it for a faith-based orphanage or nursing home. Not a great name for a drug store.

Sounds like yet another example of a right-wing religious person/group trying to force down people's throats their particular brand of religiosity. What would Jesus say? I don't know, but I can't find anything in the Bible about forcing people to believe in Christianity. I thought it was supposed to be a CHOICE.

(Shaking head) Tsk, tsk, tsk....
