With the recent approval of the emergency contraception drug Plan B has come criticism and now, pro-choice advocates are concerned that more restrictions may be placed on the drug.

"A pharmacy refusal bill would allow a pharmacist to refuse or sell a medication like emergency contraception if his or her own personal beliefs were not in accordance with that medication," Becky Reid of Planned Parenthood explained.

However, some of the local pharmacists said they will continue to stock drugs the government has approved, instead of relying on their own personal beliefs.
