Regarding the blog post, ILLINOIZE: It’s a Job, Not a Choice, Yellow Dog Democrat claims that even if pharmacists are protected by IL’s conscience clause law, they would still be mandated to dispense morning after pills even if morally opposed because of this section of the law:

Nothing in this Act shall be construed so as to relieve a physician or other health care personnel from obligations under the law of providing emergency medical care.

If, as Alan Guttmacher (research arm of Planned Parenthood) states, a max of 1% of all abortions, then most requests for MAP will be for irresponsible sexual behavior.
All IL hospitals are mandated to provide information about MAPs to sexual assault victims as well as information where they can get MAPs, if not at the hospital itself.
Yellow Dog, note that even in the case of sexual assault, the state does not force IL hospitals to provide MAPs.
In other words, the state does not consider MAPs as treatment for medical emergencies, even in the case of rape and incest.
