This is a very odd case. Apparently the Trump administration changed the rules that allow illegal aliens to get abortions, and they have one who wants one, and they won’t let her get it.
The ACLU is pushing for the abortion:
The American Civil Liberties Union prevailed in court today on behalf of a young woman in Texas who has been prevented from accessing abortion care by the Trump administration.
The Office of Refugee Resettlement has prevented a 17-year-old, who is being held at a shelter for unaccompanied immigrant minors in Texas, from getting an abortion. The ACLU challenged the obstruction and the judge has ordered that the young woman be permitted to get the abortion she decided on and requested weeks ago.
“At last, our client will be able to get the care she needs without federal officials standing in the way,” said Brigitte Amiri, senior staff attorney with the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project. “Her courage and perseverance are incredible, but no one should have to go to court to get a safe, legal abortion. And no one should be held hostage to the extreme anti-abortion views of a handful of government officials.”
“Janes everywhere are rejoicing that their dignity and humanity have been recognized and respected by the federal court,” said Susan Hays, legal director of Jane’s Due Process, a legal referral source for teens facing unintended pregnancies in Texas.
Very weird. At least you can say the Trump admin isn’t driven by hatred or racism, otherwise they’d want the abortion to go through, right?
