A right to choose? Take two

Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich recently imposed a rule requiring pharmacies in his state to provide the "morning after" pill. Several bills have been introduced in the Illinois legislature that would override the rule, thereby allowing pharmacists the choice to act in accordance with their religious or moral beliefs. The Governor has said that "if any of those bills reach my desk, they are dead on arrival."
