Judge Allows Illegal Immigrant Minor to Abort Child Immediately, Setting Precedent for Tax-Payer Funded Abortions for All Illegals

"This ruling plays into the broader agenda of the ACLU, which is recklessly exploiting a teenage girl in order to make the United States a sanctuary state for abortion. We urge the Justice Department to appeal this ruling." — Marjorie Dannenfelser

The mother seeking the abortion is a 17-year-old from Mexico.
Justice Department lawyers argued the government has "strong and constitutionally legitimate interests in promoting childbirth, in refusing to facilitate abortion, and in not providing incentives for pregnant minors to illegally cross the border to obtain elective abortions while in federal custody."
U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan said she was "astounded" that the only two options the government was giving the teen were go home to procure the abortion or stay in the U.S. and not abort the baby.
Chutkan's order even specified when the government-facilitated abortion is to take place. She must be taken to "obtain the counseling required by state law on October 19, 2017, and to obtain the abortion procedure on October 20, 2017 and/or October 21, 2017, as dictated by the abortion providers' availability and any medical requirement."
