  1. "Should doctors, pharmacists and other health care workers have the right to refuse to provide services that conflict with their religious beliefs?"

    Such professions are in the public sector, not the private, and therefore, they are by law required to adhere to legal standards not mandated by the private, and they may not discriminate against any citizens, regardless of race, religion, creed, culture, skin color, mental ability, emotional stability, or sexual preference. Have I left anything out?

    "Freedom of religion" is not a license to practise one's religion's views on anyone else. My religion does not prohibit what someone else's religion denies, and therefore, I may not be denied on the basis of what someone else's religion says.

    If one's "conscience" (whatever that is) is in conflict with one's job requirements, one can either change one's conscience or change one's job. One cannot change the job requirements.
