The Star-Telegram has a story of a 13 year old in Dubin, Texas who was allegedly raped in May. One month later she decides to consider an abortion and, this is where is gets tricky, a Dubin police officer drove the girl and her family to the clinic purportedly "to collect any remains as evidence." The police chief is catching heat. A couple of quotes: - "We want to know whether the Dublin police are in the abortion business." - "If we didn't take them, they might wind up having the abortion in a back room at somebody's home, and the victim might suffer even more," the chief said.
