  • A federal judge issued an injunction that prevents the federal government from interfering with the ability of undocumented teenagers in U.S. custody to have abortions or obtain abortion-related services.
  • The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services previously enacted a policy that prohibited federally funded shelters from taking “any action that facilitates” abortions without approval.
  • The government can appeal.

A federal judge in Washington issued an injunction on Friday preventing the Trump administration from interfering with the ability of undocumented teenagers in U.S. custody to have abortions or obtain abortion-related services.

U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan also certified a class action of similar minor children to challenge the administration’s policy.
