Uber-liberal federal Judge Tanya Chutkan — naturally an Obama appointee — ruled last week that illegal aliens have a constitutional right to abortion.
That’s right. An entirely fabricated ‘civil right’ in the Constitution now extends to non-citizens as well.
But wait, it gets worse. Not only do illegal aliens have a right to abort their baby only moments after crossing the border, according to Chutkan, but the federal is also required to inform them of such a ‘right’.
This puts the left is a peculiarly schizophrenic situation.
They want more illegal aliens to be in the country but they also want abortion-on-demand.
Something tells us the illogic of this position won’t bother the illogical left very much.
Expect the Trump administration to appeal.
Here’s more from Redstate…
U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan finds that pregnant illegal alien girls in U. S. custody have a constitutional right to an abortion. Judge Chutkan, appointed to the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. by President Obama, ordered the Trump administration to ordered late Friday to grant pregnant illegal alien girls in U.S. custody unfettered access to abortions.
As we reported previously, a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services warned that Chutkan’s ruling could result in the U.S. becoming a sanctuary for “taxpayer-supported abortions by minors crossing the border illegally.” According to the Washington Times, Judge Chutkan rejected that warning and the government’s solution of suggesting the girls be deported to their home countries, where they would be free to take whatever steps they wanted:
“This court will not sanction any policy or practice that forces vulnerable young women to make such a choice,” Judge Chutkan said, referring to the minor girls in question.
