ACLU wants US Gov’t to Facilitate Ilegal Immigrant Abortions . . .

. . . . Trump admin fights back!
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Trump administration are again fighting in court over whether the U.S. government should be forced to facilitate abortions for pregnant illegal immigrant minors.

On Friday, the ACLU asked a federal judge to allow two minors in U.S. custody, “Jane Roe” and “Jane Poe,” to abort their babies. It’s unclear in what state or states they are located. Jane Poe “is quickly approaching the limit for abortion in the state where she is being detained,” according to the lawsuit.

In October 2017, the ACLU and the Trump administration’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) fought over whether a 17-year-old illegal immigrant minor, “Jane Doe,” should be allowed to abort her baby. HHS had provided the teen in its care with life-affirming resources.

After a brief legal battle for the baby’s life, on October 24, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 6-3 the teen was to be allowed to abort her baby.

On October 25, the ACLU announced the 16-week-old baby had been aborted.

The U.S. Department of Justice is now asking the U.S. Supreme Court to punish the ACLU for lying about the timeline of this abortion.

According to the brief the DOJ filed with the Supreme Court, the ACLU moved Jane Doe’s abortion appointment to a day earlier than was originally planned and “kept the government in the dark about when Ms. Doe was scheduled to have an abortion.”

“Once again, young girls are pawns in an abortion industry effort to expand their customer base by forcing the government to facilitate the abortions of illegal immigrants,” said Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life of America (SFLA). “It is disgraceful that the ACLU and the abortion industry continue to take advantage of young girls for their own political purposes, with no regard for their health and safety.” . . . .
