SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar is weighing on the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
On his Facebook page, the Sheriff has written that he will not persecute Texas women who are seeking abortions.
He writes that as a father of two adult daughters, he will defend their ability to “do what they feels is right with their bodies and love whomever they choose”.
He adds that as their dad, he has no control over their adult bodies and as their Sheriff, its “absolutely none of my business” and he will not persecute Texas women or anyone else pursuing those same rights.
He continues with:
“Shame on the Supreme Court and the bureaucrats in Washington D.C. and Austin who are attempting to impose their own supposed morals on others. They will not use my badge or the color of my office to do so. My job is chasing predators, rapists, and human traffickers, not someone exercising a right. If it’s religion those career politicians would like to enforce, then they should remember that there are many other commandments in scripture that they themselves have very publicly chosen to ignore.
If it’s truly about protecting children, how about starting with the ones in our schools?”
