The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) secured an important victory in the circuit court sitting in Springfield, Illinois when the court issued a preliminary injunction in the case of two pharmacy owners, Luke VanderBleek and Glenn Kosirog, who have been battling to protect their conscience rights.

This is the latest victory in an ongoing effort to protect the fundamental right of pharmacists to practice their profession without having to violate their conscience.

ACLJ Senior Counsel Francis J. Manion:  "The Attorney General's Office has repeatedly argued that the Health Care Right of Conscience Act does not apply to the practice of pharmacy-and they have repeatedly failed.  While this is not a final decision on the merits of our lawsuit, the writing is on the wall.  Our clients are entitled to run their pharmacies according to the dictates of their moral and religious beliefs.  This is what the law allows; this is what the court has affirmed."

This important court victory has generated news coverage, some of which is posted below.
