Remember in late October when a teenage illegal immigrant girl in Texas who was pregnant with a 16-week-old baby decided she wanted an abortion, and the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the Trump Administration, which was trying to save the baby? The girl said through the ACLU, “People I don’t even know are trying to make me change my mind. I made my decision and that is between me and God.”
The Trump administration asked a judge to be freed from a gag order so the girl’s doctors, and any future sponsor who takes the girl from a government-run shelter, can be told of the abortion, saying it’s an important part of her history. …
“The Court’s restriction, as we understand it, prohibits HHS or the shelter from informing prospective mental health providers of J.D.’s abortion or sharing her medical records concerning that abortion,” said Jonathan White, deputy director for the government’s children’s programs, in the court document.
After the D.C. Circuit Court issued its ruling, Brigitte Amiri, senior staff attorney with the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project, chortled, "Justice prevailed today for Jane Doe. With this case we have seen the astounding lengths this administration will go to block women from abortion care."
Or the lengths to which the Trump Administration not only wants to preserve life, but also a young woman’s mental health.
