CWN Editor's Note: “No provision is made for pharmacists to opt out on the grounds of conscientious objection,” the bishops said in a statement. In addition, while “the draft legislation provides for doctors and nurses to opt out of providing abortion,” it “requires that, in such cases, they refer the patient to a colleague who will perform the procedure.”
