U.S. COURT REQUIRES TAXPAYER-FUNDED ABORTIONS FOR UNDOCUMENTED TEENS

Father God, have mercy on this nation. So many things are mixed up. We ask You for breakthrough in our abortion and immigration laws.

On Friday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. circuit blocked a Trump administration ruling that prevented undocumented teens under the government’s care from getting taxpayer-funded abortions.

According to the 2017 policy, minors in government shelters or holding facilities were not permitted access to abortion facilities. Then-director of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), Scott Lloyd, whose pro-life track record includes representing the parents of Terri Schiavo in court, has said that he does not believe in the dubious “constitutional right” to abortion, nor that it is “health care.” Lloyd thus argued it was not required for the ORR to provide it routinely to undocumented immigrants in federal care.

In a memo, Lloyd said that in the case of rape, “If the young woman was to go on to regret her abortion and experience it as a trauma, ORR will have had a hand in causing that trauma, and I am unwilling to put this young woman or ORR in that position.”

“We are unanimous in rejecting the government’s position that its denial of abortion access can be squared with Supreme Court precedent,” read part of the opinion. “The Supreme Court ‘has determined and then redetermined that the Constitution offers basic protection to the woman’s right to choose.’ And we are not free to dilute a constitutional right recognized by controlling Supreme Court precedent—a right the government affirmatively assumes unaccompanied minors here have—so that others will be dissuaded from seeking a better life in this country.”

The ruling, issued by Obama appointees Sri Srinivasan and Robert Wilkins, also rebuked now-Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh, who in October 2017 had argued that ORR’s regulations amounted to nothing more than “government efforts to help minors navigate what is undeniably a difficult situation” through “reasonable regulations.” (Excerpt from Live Action News.)

Isn’t it ironic that the same people arguing that compassion demands illegal entry into the U.S. are also demanding that we pay for abortions for teens who want to enter illegally? Wouldn’t compassion demand the entry of their babies as well? What do you think? Leave a comment.

  1. I believe most abortions are being used as a convenience.But if someone was raped, or became pregnant through incest, then I don’t think they should have to go through with carrying the child. They could do something as soon after a rape has occurred instead of waiting. I don’t believe we the people should be paying for anyone’s abortion. We should not by law, be expected to participate in this evil.
    I pray Lord that all the evil spirits fighting for this to happen will be halted, that you will hear & answer the prayers of your followers and that this abortion appeal will not become law.

  2. The U.S. Constitutional rights extend to U.S. citizens. Illegals are not citizens so the Supreme Court does not have jurisdiction. As Commander and Chief the President, in defense of the country does have jurisdiction so can set executive branch policy.

  3. It is no surprise that this decision came from Obama judges, who were only appointed because they are activists for whom the US Constitution is merely a blank sheet of paper upon which they can write there political opinions.

  4. It is a travesty that Americans who believe in the right to life and protection for the unborn are made accessories to this hideous practice. I pray that Christians and other anti-abortion people will continue to make inroads against this heathen behavior. We must continue to pray that hearts will be turned to Jesus to outlaw the killing of unborn babies and that young women will be saved BEFORE they participate in this atrocity.

  5. As a health care provider along the Southern border, I can honestly tell you most pregnant women of any age that come across the border come to have an anchor baby in the US. I’ve seen it thousands of times a year.
    However…..Would it not be more prudent to expedite their return across the border instead accruing the cost of the abortion and potential complications as well as incurring even more sin as a nation by providing the execution of another child? I just cannot see any moral or political high ground in this court decision.

  6. 2 Chronicles 7:14 Living Bible (TLB)
    14 then if my people will humble themselves and pray, and search for me, and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear them from heaven and forgive their sins and heal their land.

    Father, forgive the USA and the world for millions of killings. Rule over Lawmakers and show them this huge error and Sin. Thank you father in advance for hearing all our prayers on behalf of these innocent babies. In Jesus name amen

  7. As a former young woman who chose abortions, I’ve come to understand the precious life I snatched away because of lies.

    It’s toll, was years of grief. The guilt and sorrow was overwhelming. The only relief came in knowing the GOD who wove them together in their mothers womb, who made them fearfully and wonderfully, is the same one who offered me forgiveness.

    May truth prevail for life in these situations in Jesus’ mighty name.

  8. Abortion is one of the devil’s biggest lies. The abortion is meant as a coverup for the disregard of a woman’s virtue over her body. We all have choices to make … particularly when it comes to sin. Sin is a choice not a right! Abortion is not healthcare. It is weapon placed in the hands of theagents of darkness who live with sick and depraved minds. Lord, expose the darkness with your light of truth

  9. Yes, I agree. Here’s a girl in a new country, being held in detention and unable to go anywhere to find help, being subjected to the trauma of abortion. I don’t see anywhere in this scenario that she would be offered alternatives like medical care for her pregnancy or the option of adoption. It brings a frightening new dimension to the phrase “we’re from the government and we’re here to help you.”

  10. Yes, absolutely. I have been pro life for many years and I am really dismayed at how far so many of us have strayed from the Truth. Anyone who participates in helping these young, vulnerable woman to procure an abortion will be held responsible by God, and may quite possibly be held to a higher degree of sin than the woman, who is a victim.
