Judge rules to allow illegal immigrant minor to abort her baby immediately

U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan
UPDATE: A judge has temporarily prevented a minor in the U.S. illegally from obtaining an abortion until another hearing takes place on Friday.
The Trump administration appealed U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan’s Wednesday ruling that an illegal immigrant minor in the government’s custody be allowed to abort her baby “promptly and without delay.”

Obama-appointed U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan ordered the government to allow an illegal immigrant 17 year old minor from Mexico in its custody to abort her preborn child “promptly and without delay.”

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.”
