In 2005, an Arizona court ruled that Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's practice of requiring jail inmates to get a court order before he would take them to have abortions was unconstitutional. The court issued an injunction against Arpaio that was upheld by the Arizona Court of Appeals. As an officer of the law, Arpaio is a big believer that the law must be followed, right? Not according to an inmate identified in court papers as Mary Roe. She says when she asked to be taken to have an abortion, deputies told her she needed to get a court order. She says they didn't even mention the injunction against that requirement. The ACLU has asked the court to find Arpaio in contempt for violating its order.
