    Not all pharmacies are private. Would you consider a pharmacy in a Wal-Mart to be private? Safeway?

    And I'm pretty sure that the OP is talking about pharmacies that do carry the medicine in stock. So one would have to assume that they do sell them.

    Those pharmacies are not public. They are inside private businesses. Whatever the policy that those businesses have is the policy that I would expect their employees to adhere to. I would imagine if they did not, there would be consequences.

    And I'm pretty sure that the OP is talking about pharmacies that do carry the medicine in stock. So one would have to assume that they do sell them.
    It wasn't clear. If it IS in stock, and it IS policy for them to be sold, the pharmacist probably needs to look for a place where it is NOT sold. However, even in pharmacies that are included in a larger store, I would imagine that the pharmacist is in charge of ordering stock. He could then choose to not stock this particular item. As long as that was not against company policy AND as long as he offered the customer another place to purchase the item, I have no problem with that.

    I don't know. Imo I just don't consider companies that serve millions of people in hundreds, if not thousands of locations to be "private" in any normal sense of the word. Especially if they have stocks in the stock market.

    To me, public means governmental, where one's morality is irrelevant... or at least over ruled by the Constitution. Any privately owned business... and a business listed in the stock market is still owned by private citizens with their shares, are still private IMO.

    Whether you consider such companies to be “private” or “public” appears to have very, very, very little to do with whether they are, in fact, private or public.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

As long as they give the couple names of people who would treat them, there is nothing wrong with what that individual does, ethically.
    Why do they have to do anything? Why do people think anyone HAS to do anything for anyone else? Because why?

    I believe it's an ethical standard that is part of one's licensing.

    Morality in government is not irrelevant and the constitution is decided by people that decide cases based on morality, not so much intent or law.

    And once those cases are decided, different morality is irrelevant. If the Constitution states something that adheres to a specific morality, opposing morality is meaningless from a constitutional position.
