In this case, the ACLU is representing a young woman in Texas who is currently being prevented from accessing abortion care because the Trump administration has adopted a new policy that directly prevents unaccompanied immigrant minors from obtaining abortions.

The ACLU is going to court to ensure that Jane Doe and other young women like her can obtain the abortion care they are seeking.
