Right to Life asks, next time you walk into a pharmacy, are you patronising a pharmacist who is an abortion provider and who has the blood of innocent unborn children on their hands?
The government has now approved retail pharmacies to provide Mifepristone and Misoprostol, which are the abortion pills, on prescription. Now the Bargain Chemist and Chemist Warehouse chains are ready to profit from the murder of unborn children, as they have advised Right to Life that they are now filling prescriptions for abortion pills in their stores, and so are participating in chemical abortions nationwide. Bargain Chemist has 17 branches and the Chemist Warehouse has 9 branches in New Zealand. The government has allowed these pharmaceutical companies to become some of the largest abortion providers in New Zealand.
Right to Life is disappointed that the Pharmaceutical Council, appointed by the Minister of Health and the Pharmaceutical Society, support pharmacists dispensing prescriptions for the abortion pills to kill unborn children.
Right to Life wrote to the Pharmacy Council in April to express concern at their not upholding the ethics of the pharmaceutical profession
