I might exaggerate a bit. The names of those voting to refuse to hear a religious liberty case revolving around conscience rights with regard to infanticide were not released. But given that only Alito, Thomas, and Roberts voted to hear the case, that pretty much let’s us know who cast the deciding vote yet again, doesn’t it?
The Supreme Court on Tuesday narrowly rejected an appeal over whether a private pharmacy can be forced by the state to dispense the so-called “morning after” pill, in effect refusing to expand its look into a religious liberty fight and certain reproductive health services. [No, in effect directly attacking the entire conception of religious liberty and further tightening the noose around the necks of Christians]
At issue is a 2005 Washington state order that a family-owned pharmacy in Olympia provide so-called emergency Plan B contraception — including morning-after and week-after pills — that the business owners equate to abortion, in violation of their closely-held religious beliefs.
While the official vote total was not released, at least three justices dissented on the decision not to intervene. Justice Samuel Alito strongly dissented, saying the signal from the court was clear: “Violate your sincerely held religious beliefs or get out of the pharmacy business.” [Which is the whole point: yield to the sexular pagan state, Christofascists, or go broke clutching your bibles]
“If this is a sign of how religious liberty claims will be treated in the years ahead, those who value religious freedom have cause for great concern,” he wrote. [That’s the understatement of the century] Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Clarence Thomas would also have granted the case for review.
The pharmacists say, as a proposed accommodation, when a customer asks for one of these drugs, they would be referred to one of more than 30 pharmacies within a five-mile radius that willingly offer these drugs.
Washington officials say their law — similar to ones in eight other states — ensures patient access to the medication, regardless of an individual pharmacist’s personal beliefs.
Which, again, yield on your most cherished religious beliefs, which we in the secular pagan state religion find deplorable, or you will be crushed. Obviously, if there are 30 choices within 5 miles, no one will be more than slightly inconvenienced by this pharmacy’s abstention. But the point is not convenience, or the availability of dangerous chemical cocktails to kill babies. The point is to crush Christian belief and drive it from the public square.
And I don’t think I exaggerate at all in saying that.
