Appeals Court Sets Terms For Abortion For Teen Immigrant

The federal appeals court for the District of Columbia has ruled that a teen who is detained because she is in the country illegally can transferred to the custody of a sponsor and then have an abortion if she chooses.

A lower court had ordered the government to allow the minor who is in the U.S. without permission to seek an abortion “without delay.” The appeals judges say first she needs a sponsor.
