Although it is too late to save the life of an undocumented immigrant’s baby, and too late to spare the 17-year-old mom from the remorse and regret that follows abortion, the Trump administration is not walking away from the case.
As reported today by the Daily Caller, the Department of Justice has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to sanction the lawyers for the ACLU who represented the girl, known as Jane Doe.
After the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled that the teenager from Central America could abort her child at nearly 16 weeks, attorneys for the government said they would appeal the ruling to the Supreme Court. Before they could do that, however, the girl was taken for the abortion that ended her child’s life.
The ACLU, NARAL and other pro-aborts celebrated the decision on social media using the hashtag #JusticeforJane. But pro-lifers took over the trending hashtag, pointing out the inhumanity of cheering the death by dismemberment of a tiny and blameless human being.
The Justice Department wants the decision vacated and the attorneys sanctioned. It won’t bring Jane’s baby back, but it would be nice to see a little justice in this case.
In case you missed it, here’s a piece I wrote for the Daily Caller on the day Jane Doe’s child died.
