Kei’choura Cathey found out she was pregnant in August 2015, about two weeks after she was arrested in Maury County, about 50 miles outside of Nashville. According to a complaint filed in a Tennessee federal court in late December, Maury County Sheriff Bucky Rowland told Cathey that his department would not pay to transport her to a clinic unless the abortion is medically necessary or the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest.
