Judge denies ACLU effort to release detained migrant girl for abortion

Officials at the Office of Refugee Resettlement have prevented a 17-year-old girl at a federally funded shelter in Texas from obtaining an abortion, according to a court filling. Pictured is an examination room for abortions at an Austin, Texas, clinic after a U.S. Supreme Court ruling last year struck down some of the state's abortion regulations, saying they were medically unnecessary.
