DC Circuit reinstates order requiring government to allow teen immigrant to get an abortion

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit issued a 6-3 order (PDF) overturning an Oct. 20 decision by a D.C. Circuit panel that had delayed the abortion, report Politico, BuzzFeed News and Reuters.

The earlier, 2-1 panel decision had made it possible for the girl to have the abortion without government involvement because it allowed time to find a sponsor who could take the girl for an abortion.
