Federal judge orders Trump regime to allow abortion for abducted teen

Source: CNN

“A federal judge has ordered the government to allow a pregnant undocumented teen immigrant in detention in Texas to get an abortion after the Trump administration denied her access to one. In a two-page decision, DC District Judge Tanya Chutkan ordered officials at the Department of Health and Human Services to allow the girl, identified only as Jane Doe, to be transported by a guardian or attorney ‘promptly and without delay’ to an abortion provider to obtain state-mandated counseling and then to obtain the abortion. … the unaccompanied 17-year-old is staying in a Texas shelter under the Office of Refugee Resettlement of HHS, which [abducts] undocumented immigrant minors that come to the US without any parents or guardians. She is not able to leave, except to leave the US entirely. While the teen had judicial permission, in the place of parental consent, and the funds to the get the abortion, the ACLU said, officials refused to transport her for the procedure or allow anyone else to do so.” (10/18/17)
