Posted on 10/19/2017 1:59:14 PM PDT by Bubba_Leroy
An appeals court on Thursday halted a decision that would have allowed a pregnant illegal immigrant teen to get an abortion, just hours after a federal judge ordered the government to "promptly" take her to have the procedure.
The unidentified 17-year-old girl, who is being held at a Texas facility after she entered the U.S. illegally, is believed to be about 15 weeks pregnant. Texas state law bans most abortions if a woman is more than 20 weeks pregnant and require them to get counseling from a doctor 24 hours before the procedure. Minors are also usually required to obtain parental consent or a judge's waiver.
Another hearing is expected to occur Friday morning, in which the appeals court could lift the stay. The teenager can then still have the procedure on Friday or Saturday.
Judge Tanya Chutkan ordered on Wednesday to have the teenager transported to an abortion clinic promptly and without delay. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia then issued a short ruling that blocked the order after the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services filed an appeal.

PRAY for the life of the unborn child.
She does not want a child if it is not going to be a US Citizen Anchor Baby. Disgusting.
The courts will probably allow it around 39 weeks.
So a jamaican born Judge appointed by Obammy gets over ruled.. ??
Texas laws apply to illegals ?
Murdering a little baby should never be the responsibility of U.S. taxpayers!.... You ask God to “Bless” America?!!!
PROMPTLY send her back to Mexico for her abortion. They can BILL GEORGE SOROS for it since he's probably the one PAYING HER COURT FEES.
Another GEORGE SOROS TEST OF OUR COURT SYSTEM with the aim of granting illegal invaders more rights OF WHICH THEY ACTUALLY HAVE NONE.
I would expect this evil in CA but in Texas??
We have Obama appointed federal district judges in Texas just like everywhere else.
"President Barack Obama appointed Chutkan to the bench in 2014, making her the third black woman to serve in the D.C. District Court. . .Chutkan, who grew up in Jamaica, said she applied to GW without her parents knowing and got her acceptance letter while her parents were away in another country. . .'It really gets to you after a while seeing what feels like an endless parade of young people, young black men especially, go into the criminal justice system,' Chutkan said.": Alumna works to find a balance as a district judge
The extent to which the Obama administration conspired in the busing of illegal invaders into certain states by the thousands will NEVER be revealed. There are YouTube videos showing white buses transporting illegals into California, Texas, etc..
And where was the UN and various HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSIONS as thousands of MINORS were risking their lives crossing the border UNDER OBAMA'S WATCH?
Send her back where she came from.......tomorrow!
Good. What the HELL does a JUDGE think its doing giving ORDERS about infanticide to the EXECUTIVE branch.
Folks, we really really really need to think about cleansing these districts and circuits of the most egregious of these blacked robed thugs. There IS a constitutional remedy.
Yeah, the only Court required to exist by the Constitution is the USSC.
All others District or Appeals are creations of Congressional legislation and as such can be simply legislated into oblivion.
This alleged 17yo is, according to her attorneys, from ‘central America’. She claims her parents might punish her if they find out she is pregnant; she's a runaway minor. She has voiced that she feels "coerced" into carrying full-term in response to being provided well pregnancy counseling. Mexico City provides abortion on demand up to 12 weeks pregnant. Texas law requires parent/judge sign off on any minor’s abortion. AG Paxton has argued that those here illegally with no ties to the US have no constitutional right to taxpayer-funded abortion. This pits money-hungry abortion clinics and SJWs looking to make the US a free abortion sanctuary, against (parents and) taxpayers, and against the identity of the US.
The ACLU is arguing that the US government is legally obligated to provide food, housing and medical care including abortions on demand as part of ‘reproductive services’ for ‘unaccompanied minors’. The nGos who provide the services for minors under govt contract say they can't facilitate abortions. This pits current legislation, religious freedom and sovereignty as an affront to 'civil rights'.
Does she goes easy on them??
Good luck with that. We can't even get Congress to get rid of Obamacare.
