Pregnant Illegal Alien Minors Break Into The U.S. to GET Abortions?

WASHINGTON — An immigrant illegal alien teen held in federal custody in Texas on Wednesday had the abortion she had been seeking for a month, overcoming the Trump administration’s objection.

The American Civil Liberties Union said on Twitter that the 17-year-old had the procedure early Wednesday. Susan Hays, legal director for the Texas group Jane’s Due Process, confirmed to The Associated Press that the teen had the procedure.

The full U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit had cleared the way Tuesday for the procedure to take place. Wednesday’s news came exactly a month after the teen obtained a state court order permitting her to have an abortion.

The teen illegally entered the U.S. in September and learned she was pregnant while in federal custody in Texas. She obtained a state court order permitting an abortion. But federal officials had refused to transport her or temporarily release her so that others may take her for the procedure.

Lawyers for the Department of Health and Human Services, which is responsible for sheltering children who illegally enter the country unaccompanied by a parent, said the department has a policy of “refusing to facilitate” abortions and that releasing the teenager would require arranging a transfer of custody and follow-up care.

      No, we are still way down on the list, about the same as Canada.

    What a dummy. Didn’t she know that a live US-born offspring is a meal-ticket anchor baby? This case is not the usual narrative.

      Left has nothing else to but cover all their bases and look for new ones. It never has to be logical or even sane … take Hillary for instance….

      No kidding! She just had almost twenty years of American welfare benefits sucked out of her uterus.
      Obviously she was a test case for abortion on government provided abortion on-demand. I wonder if she even knew what she was signing up for?

    You would think the paradise of Mexico would be giving away free abortions. But you would be wrong. It’s extremely restricted. But….according to liberals we should be Mexico.
