As reported by OneNewsNow.com , the SCOTUS has turned down an appeal from an Arizona county sheriff, who's religious and ethical beliefs make it a serious problem for him to transport pregnant inmates for elective abortions.
Not only is the dilemma grounded in moral and religious beliefs for the law enforcement officer, it was actually against jail policy to engage in such a transport without court order.
An Arizona sheriff wanted the justices to allow him to enforce a jail policy that bars transporting inmates for abortions without a court order.
Arizona courts said the policy violated the inmates' constitutional rights. A federal appeals court in Missouri recently issued a similar ruling in a case there.
The justices did not comment on their decision to leave the Arizona ruling in place.
It's obvious that this occasion can be placed right along with the rest, in the stack of countless occasions where terms like "Choice" and "Diversity" are recognized and respected, until those with opinions and stands from the moral and conservative side of the argument are concerned.
