In response, ACLU attorneys for Doe asked for an en banc review of the case by the DC circuit-in which all the court's judges assess the case.
Courtney Cahill, a professor at Florida State University College of Law, described the Garza majority's decision as a compromise ruling. The majority decision lifted the stay on the District Court's order, requiring the government to promptly allow Doe's abortion and asking the District Court to update the government's deadlines for compliance with the order.
On Friday, the court ruled that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) could have until October 31 to identify and vet a sponsor and release Jane Doe to that sponsor.
A federal judge in Washington last week ruled the abortion procedure could go ahead before the appeals court panel intervened.
"The ACLU actually brought this case as class action to address other girls who have been in the same situation", Amiri said, noting that she was aware of at least three minor girls in this situation before Jane Doe, and that the ACLU hopes this case will prevent the government from "doing this ever again". "While the government delays, there is a 17 year old young woman waiting to find out whether she can have the abortion she wants or whether our government will force her to continue this pregnancy against her will".
"Federal and Texas state officials are to be commended for defending the life of an innocent unborn child in a recent case involving an unaccompanied pregnant minor in federal immigration custody", the Texas Conference of Catholic Bishops stated October 20.
A US federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that an illegal immigrant minor can get an abortion after weeks of back and forth in state and federal courts, Politico reports. Two of the minors whose cases are summarized in the memo, which was shared with HuffPost, said they had been raped, but in both instances the officials casted doubt on their stories, writing that the 17-year-olds had initially said their pregnancy resulted from consensual sex. Just as the government doesn't want to endorse illegals coming to the US for free health care and education, they also don't want to endorse allowing abortions for illegals.
But her lawyers quickly appealed the ruling, arguing that prolonging her pregnancy caused an emotional and physical burden on Doe, and that the government simply had to step aside, as opposed to facilitate, the procedure.
Millett said the Trump administration had "bulldozed over constitutional lines" by contending that Jane Doe should be forced to leave the country if she wanted an abortion. However the ORR-contracted shelter where she is being housed, and at the federal office's direction, refused to transport her to the appointment. Since at least March, the office has disallowed shelters from taking minors to terminate their pregnancies without the approval of its anti-abortion director, E. Scott Lloyd. The agency sent Jane Doe to a "crisis pregnancy center" where she was urged to reconsider her decision, and barred her from recreational activities, according to her attorneys. The only thing ORR needs to do is get out of the way.
