TX - Abortions in Jail

Parker County, TX - A Texas Sheriff is in the spotlight for refusing to take an inmate to an abortion clinic.

The American Civil Liberties Union is stepping in, citing that a woman's right to an abortion is protected by law.

Parker County Sheriff, Larry Fowler, says he believes residents would oppose spending taxpayer money on transporting inmates to abortion clinics.

The ACLU says the jail is not required to pay for the procedure but cannot deny access.
