Bill would require pharmacies to fill orders no matter beliefs
Monday, June 11, 2007

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) A pharmacy would be required to fill prescriptions for any drug it stocks such as birth-control pills regardless of a pharmacist’s moral beliefs under a bill that cleared the Legislature on Monday.

The bill, approved 56-18 by the Assembly, establishes a pharmacy’s duty to fill lawful prescriptions without undue delay and without consideration for a pharmacist’s moral, philosophical or religious beliefs.

If a pharmacy doesn’t have a prescription in stock, the pharmacy would have to either obtain it under expedited ordering or find a nearby pharmacy to fill the prescription.

The bill was approved by the Senate in June 2006 and goes to Gov. Jon S. Corzine for his signature.
