Federal District Judge Laurel Beeler is hearing an emergency request from the ACLU of Northern California to order the Office of Refugee Resettlement to allow a pregnant undocumented teenager–“Jane Doe”–to leave ORR custody to have an abortion.
The ACLU’s request for a temporary restraining order allowing the abortion to go forward is opposed by the Trump Administration, Ken Paxton, the attorney general of Texas, and six other attorneys general—from Louisiana, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, and South Carolina.
“No federal court has ever declared that unlawfully-present aliens with no substantial ties to this country have a constitutional right to abortion on demand,” Paxton said. “If ‘Doe’ prevails in this case, the ruling will create a right to abortion for anyone on earth who enters the U.S. illegally. And with that right, countless others undoubtedly would follow. Texas must not become a sanctuary state for abortions.”
