To The Editor:

What exactly are we paying taxes for in Saint Lawrence County?I was in Canton last Thursday and saw a Sheriffs car parked at Planned Parenthood.A little bit of investigation on my part and I found out that our Deputies who get paid to protect us were taking a girl from the jail to have an abortion.Is this something we should be paying for?Our tax dollars paid the cops salary to bring the inmate their, our tax dollars paid for the abortion.The County Legislators made a big deal about saving us money by cutting out ketchup from the jail budget, and now their forcing us to pay for abortions for the girls in jail???

I ask you, is this right?Maybe the Sheriffs Department should be shut down, if this is what our taxes buy.
