Re: “Don’t give in to extremists” (letter, 2-21).

To call a pharmacist a religious extremist for objecting to life-ending procedures is like calling the people who objected to slavery extremists. The people in Germany who objected to Hitler’s final solution were the extremists of their day. A holocaust is still a holocaust to the innocent victims, even if it is socially acceptable.
