who is opposed to birth control in Idaho?

There are pharmacists and

There are pharmacists and other health professionals who are morally opposed to birth control and thus do not wish to prescribe it. The Idaho legislature recently passed Bill 1353, which is called the freedom of conscience law for health care professionals. This permits health professionals who have moral objections against birth control or abortion from being forced to provide it. Catholic groups and a conservative family organizations supported this bill, whereas Planned Parenthood was in opposition, because they said it will make it harder for women to get reproductive services. So there is no group that opposes birth control per se, although individual pharmacists may oppose it according to their conscience.
