Washington, D.C. –  The national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) today slammed a ruling by a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit mandating abortion on demand for undocumented teenage immigrants in government custody:

“This sweeping ruling seeks to make the United States a sanctuary nation for abortion, forcing the government to facilitate abortions for vulnerable teenage girls who are far from home and from loved ones,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “The countries from where these immigrants are flowing are far more protective of unborn children than the United States. We must renew our determination to restore the United States as a haven for babies and their mothers, not a destination for the destruction of the children of any neighbor. We commend the Trump administration’s efforts to protect both mother and child from exploitation.”

SBA List is a network of more than 787,000 pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
