Appeals court OKs abortion for undocumented teen

The Government Is Trying to Force a 17-Year-Old to Have a Baby Against Her Will. How Very "Pro-Life."

The Texas bishops criticized the American Civil Liberties Union for backing an abortion for a teen immigrant in the country illegally and also praised government officials for their defense of the unborn.

While reproductive rights advocates may have felt a measure of relief over today's court decision, the case as a whole paints a disturbing picture of how some of the most vulnerable among us are being deterred from making decisions about their own health care - and their futures - under the Trump administration.

Judge Patricia Millett, who was vindicated by Tuesday's decision.

In a tweet responding to the ACLU's announcement, Pro-Life Action League said, "Whenever a fellow member of our human family is killed, it is never a cause for celebration. God, have mercy on us".

In an October 20 statement released by the Texas Catholic Conference in Austin, the state's bishops said argued against requiring "the government to facilitate and participate in ending the innocent life of the unborn child", saying it would diminish "the historic promise of our nation to serve as a beacon of hope for all".

GM Adjusted Earnings Overcome $3 Billion Charges
GM's shares traded up more than 2% about an hour after Tuesday's opening bell, at $46.25 in a 52-week range of $30.21 to $46.76. On September 21 Morgan Stanley left the stock rating at "Overweight" but moved up the price target to $43.00 from $40.00.

Doe said the government "provides for most of [her] needs at the shelter", but they would not allow her to leave to get an abortion.

They also pointed out that the Catholic Church in Texas has provided assistance and shelter to unaccompanied immigrant minors, refugees and pregnant mothers for decades. "People I don't even know are trying to make me change my mind".

The teen said she was grateful she was able to proceed with her decision and said she would encourage other girls in her situation to make "the right decision for themselves".

The decision by the en banc appellate court supplants a divided ruling issued by a three-judge panel of the court on Friday.

Earlier this year under President Donald Trump's administration, the Office of Refugee Resettlement issued a new policy requiring that taxpayer-funded shelters for immigrants and refugees offer life-affirming support to women and girls who are pregnant, according to Slate, a pro-abortion news site.

Bannon Says George W. Bush Presidency Was Most "Destructive" in History
A spokesperson for Bush denied that the speech was directed at Trump . Donald Trump's least presidential moments so far. .

The case has been watched closely by both sides of the abortion debate, because the ruling could affect hundreds of underage women in federal immigration custody.

The federal government's obsession with stopping this teen from exercising her medical right to an abortion is alarming, to say the least.

The court of appeals recognized what we knew all along: This was an egregious overreach, & abortion access is a human right. It's about a group of powerful, faraway people, majority men, making decisions for millions of women they will never meet, whose circumstances they will never understand. "This is not the law". The pro-abortion legal group recently asked to add the 17-year-old girl's case to their lawsuit, but Beeler refused Wednesday, ruling that the cases were not related enough, Courthouse News reports.

Henderson also criticized the panel majority for bestowing the right to an abortion on an undocumented minor with no substantial connections to the USA, saying that the decision "plows new and potentially unsafe ground". "That sure does not sound like "on demand" to me".

The Jane Doe abortion saga is finally over. Simultaneously, to shrink Jane Doe's actual interests in not carrying an unwanted pregnancy to term, the administration has painstakingly dismissed her as a non-citizen, a minor, and of course, a female, and thus in need of adult supervision.
