Two pro-life pharmacy owners have won the right, for now, to refuse to stock and dispense the morning-after pill.
The Circuit Court in Springfield, Il. has issued a preliminary injunction in the case, stating that the two pharmacists "are suffering irreparable harm in the form of an ongoing chill of their free exercise rights."
For the last four years, Glen Kosirog and Luke Vanderbleek have been facing off against the state of Illinois over their conscience rights. Both men oppose the morning-after pill because it can prevent implantation of a fertilized egg.
Illinois boasts one of the strongest conscience protection laws in the country, but then-Gov. Rod Blagojevich overturned it in 2005.
CBN News spoke with Vanderbleek earlier this year about the issue.
"If the government says that Luke Vanderbleek can't enter his pharmacy without a moral conscience and do what my heart and the Spirit tells me to do with good conscience I won't be a pharmacist anymore in this state," he said.
