Benedict on Pharmacists

As I've written elsewhere, I'm skeptical about whether a pharmacist should be legally empowered to invoke a right of conscience against her employer.  I fear that such a right might short-circuit the possibility of a moral marketplace and the potential for pharmacies to operate as a sort of mediating structure.  The marketplace approach has plenty of critics, of course, and I welcome the challenges they present, though I'm given pause by the fact that the critics now apparently include Pope Benedict.
