Segment 4 – Pregnant 16-year-old not ‘mature’ enough for an abortion, court rules
A Florida judge ruled that a 16-year-old pregnant girl could not receive an abortion because she was not “sufficiently mature” enough to terminate her pregnancy. The parentless teenager was seeking a waiver from a state law requiring minors to get parental consent for an abortion. She had told the lower court she was not ready for a baby, did not have a job and the baby’s father was unable to help her. She lives with a relative and has an appointed guardian who is “fine” with her decision. The girl also said she was “pursuing a GED with involvement in a program designed to assist young women who have experienced trauma in their lives.”

Janet Morana serves as the Executive Director of Priests for Life and the Co-Founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, the world’s largest mobilization of women and men who have lost children to abortion.
