German Pharmacist’s right to act in line with conscience affirmed in landmark court trial

Are pharmacists allowed to act in accordance with their conscience?

In Berlin, a pharmacist who would not sell the ‘morning-after-pill’ for conscience reasons has recently faced legal proceedings initiated by the Berlin Chamber of Pharmacists.

For the first time, a German court ruled on this matter and upheld his right to act in accordance with his conscience regarding the sale of certain products.

ADF International supported the pharmacist in this case.
