ACLU fights Trump administration about illegal immigrants’ abortion access

FILE 2016: The judiciary is working to have the Supreme court vacate the ruling in Garza v. Hargan.


The Trump administration, it is prevented that two illegal immigrants from abortion, the American Civil Liberties Union, said Friday.

The two women, both 17, arrived in the United States from Central America, the year as unaccompanied minors, the ACLU said. They are kept in a secret Federal shelter.

The ACLU represented, a pregnant seventeen-year-old earlier this year in Texas and helped her get an abortion. The case Garza v. Hargan – is pending before the Supreme court. The Ministry of justice hopes that the judgment vacated in the previous case, in order to prevent the other from obtaining the procedure.

The ACLU filed legal update papers, the lawsuit in Garza v. Hargan suit, two additional seventeen-year-olds.

“The two minors are asked not to have wrote to their respective doctors and their accommodations for an abortion, but until today,” the government “allowed the access to abortion,” the ACLU.

The judge overseeing the case has a hearing for Monday. The same judge ruled in favor of the ACLU, the first applicant, referred to as Jane Doe.

The Department of Health and Human Services, responsible for the protection of children who illegally enter the country unaccompanied, said the Department has abortions, a policy of “refusing to simplify”.

The ACLU referred to the two new teens as Jane Roe and Jane Poe. Jane Roe says learned, at the end of November that she was pregnant during a medical examination while in state custody.

The teenager wanted to end her pregnancy by taking medication that causes a miscarriage. Read about 10 weeks pregnant, a court document.

The ACLU’s earlier case Jane Doe was a 17-year-old, which will be held in the United States illegally, in September, in a Federal facility in Texas. After learning she was pregnant, she received a state court to allow an abortion.

Federal officials refused to transport her, or temporarily free, so that others could, you the procedure. She was finally able to obtain an abortion, a day after the Federal courts sided with her, but the Trump administration has accused of ACLU lawyers of misleading the government in the case.

The Trump-government says ACLU lawyers’ actions deprived of administrative lawyers to ask for the chance to block the Supreme court the procedures.
