Appeals Court Puts Hold on Undocumented Teen's Abortion
An appeals court has halted a lower court ruling that would have allowed an undocumented teenager, who is in detention in south Texas, to have an abortion.
The U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington stayed Wednesday’s ruling in order to hold a hearing Friday on the merits of the case.
Jane Doe, as she is known in court to protect her privacy, has been detained in a refugee shelter in Brownsville, Texas, since September 11, when she was apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border.
