11 States Tell Supreme Court: We Have a Right to Protect Unborn Babies From Abortion

Attorneys general in 11 states urged the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday to vacate a lower court’s decision to force the government to help facilitate an abortion for an illegal immigrant minor.

The teen, “Jane Doe,” aborted her unborn baby in October after a federal appeals court ruled in her favor. However, the federal government and the 11 states want the high court to consider the case because of the precedent it could set for future situations.

Earlier this fall, the ACLU won a victory for the abortion industry when a federal appeals court ruled that the government must help facilitate an abortion for the teen who was staying in a Texas government shelter. Barely 24 hours after the ruling, the teen had her unborn baby aborted.

Later, the Trump administration accused the ACLU of deceiving the government about when the teen’s abortion would take place. It asked the Supreme Court to consider the case, as well as disciplinary actions against the ACLU attorneys.

The Dallas Morning News reports Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a brief Monday, along with attorneys general in 10 other states, supporting the federal government’s case.

“No court has ever before recognized such broad rights for unlawfully present aliens with virtually no connections to the country,” Paxton wrote in the brief. “Under the reasoning of the courts below, there will be no meaningful limit on the constitutional rights an unlawfully present alien can invoke simply by attempting to enter this country.”

Also signing the brief were the state attorneys general from Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina and West Virginia, according to the report. . . . Read more
