Trump Admin Must Provide Abortion For Illegal Teens, Judge Rules

A federal judge in Washington, D.C., late Friday blocked a Trump administration policy which inhibits illegal alien minors in federal custody from terminating their pregnancies.
U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan, an Obama appointee, chastised the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) for centralizing all reproductive choices with the agency’s director, who must personally sanction all abortions for undocumented teens.
“ORR’s policy vests the power to decide the future of a UC’s pregnancy in one man: Director [Scott] Lloyd,” the decision reads.
The enjoined ORR policy requires pregnant undocumented minor in federal custody to obtain an ultrasound, meet with an options counselor from a pre-approved list of providers, and provide signed, notarized consent from her parents before securing an abortion.
