Cardinal George Speaks Out Against Contraception Coercion

As we noted here last month, Govenor Blagojevich of Illinois is out to require all pharamcists to either dispense or provide referrals for the morning after pill regardless of moral reservations.

In his first public statement, Cardinal George attacked the rule change head on:


"People have a choice what pharmacy they want to go to, and pharmacists should have a moral choice also," George said. "I don't think the state has any business encroaching on the conscience of people. We haven't done this in this country, we've respected individual conscience as something that is of great moral importance, so I would hope the governor would rethink his regulation."

George also met with Blagojevich in person, but no word yet on what they discussed. You can bet this was part of it though.
