WEATHERFORD, Texas, May 24, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has threatened legal action against a Texas sheriff, claiming he violated an inmate’s constitutional “right” to an abortion by refusing to transport her to an abortion clinic.
Sheriff Larry Fowler, however, said he would not use taxpayer funds to facilitate the deed.
“My personal feeling is I don’t feel like the taxpayers of Parker County would think much of their sheriff spending taxpayer money to take people to abortion clinics,” Fowler told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
“I don’t think they would want me to even entertain that notion.”
