A pregnant, underage illegal immigrant in federal custody was forced to sign a form requesting representation by two pro-abortion attorneys, even though she doesn’t want an abortion, according to a US Department of Justice court filing.
Whether pregnant teens who entered the US illegally and are in the government’s custody have the right to a government-facilitated abortion has become an issue during the Trump administration.
In October 2017, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and other abortion lobby groups won a 17 year-old immigrant the “right” to abort her 16 week-old baby. The Trump administration tried to defend the mother and the baby’s life, offering life-affirming healthcare.
Pro-life groups warned that this ruling could set the US up to be a “sanctuary” country where anyone who enters illegally may be granted an abortion. The US already has some of the most liberal abortion laws in the world.
