Resource: Garza v. Hargan - Challenge to Trump Administration's Attempts to Block Abortions for Young Immigrant Women

By: American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)

August 8, 2018

The ACLU has taken the Trump administration to court over its new policy of preventing young immigrant women from having abortions they want. The ACLU represents a 17-year-old woman who came to the United States without her parents and who is currently residing in a government-funded shelter in Texas. The Trump administration will not allow her to leave the shelter in order to get an abortion.
