Detained Immigrant Women Are Facing A Grueling Abortion
The U.S. government took steps to help pregnant migrant youths
Who are in custody without their parents to be able to access abortion services by assigning them to shelters in states
That still permit this access.
Pregnant migrant youths will also be provided with transportation,
Iife needed, from states where abortion is mostly banned to a state
Where it is legal. These policy changes provided by the Biden administration are in response to,
How the Supreme Court overturned the nationwide right to abortion access in June.
Government officials and contractors with religious opposition to abortion are not required to assist in providing access under this policy update.
