Because freedom can't protect itself
"uphold the law" as in defying multiple court orders?
All those who question whether the constitution provides rights not spelled out elsewhere might want to read the glorious ninth amendment.
Maybe they shouldn't have had unprotected sex? Keep your legs closed and stop breaking the law.
The rights of an unborn fetus do not trump the rights of the adult carrying it.
I hate the phrase "constitutional rights." I don't derive a single right from the constitution. My rights are inherent. The constitution is a list of restraints on government. That's it.
It's not a child till it's born. Until then, it's a fetus. Not even sentient until LATE in the third tri-mester. If you haven't decided whether or not to get an abortion by then, it's too late.
Oh yeah, he "upholds the law". Then he goes and violates multiple court orders if he doesn't like the order. He doesn't Uphold THE law, he only upholds HIS law.
Could I perhaps mention to the readership of incensed blinkered god-botherers that the spawn of these women would presumably be unsympathetic towards the morals-driven society they seem to espouse.
Support the purge! They'd probably vote democrat anyway.
the best part about being a prison baby is that regardless of where you go in life, you'll never be too far from home.
Thank you for standing up for these women, ACLU. You're getting a donation from me this year. Huzzah!
Kudos to you, ACLU.
Joe may be a douche, but I did like the whole tent thing. LOL
How are these women getting pregnant in prison in the first place?
Screw Joe and the ACLU.
ACLU is so full of shiat
@Anonymous (who said: "How about they stop getting pregnant?")
How about they stopped getting raped? And in some cases, by their jailors?
wow, arpaio got the first comment? color me impressed.
the whole of the police in maricopa along with arpaio deserve to be fired and jailed.
Personally, I like the idea of aborting criminals babies. That one less future criminal. GO ACLU!
Sheriff Joe Arapio is a true Common Sense American Patriot that will not bend to the politically correct insanity that is destroying the Country.
The ACLU cares NOTHING about the survival of the United States!
If the right-wing are so concerned about fetuses, why do they support our two ongoing wars? Or at least are totally silent about them?
