..............“A first-year law student understands that it is unconstitutional for the government to ban abortion,” she said. “The legal claim is pretty straightforward.”

The ACLU says the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is refusing to let the girl be taken for an abortion. The girl may be up to 14 weeks’ pregnant, Rochelle Garza, a lawyer appointed to represent the girl’s legal interests, told The Associated Press on Tuesday. Texas law prohibits most abortions after 20 weeks.

In her ruling, Beeler said there was “no justification” for restricting the girl’s access to an abortion.

“The government may not want to facilitate abortion,” Beeler wrote. “But it cannot block it. It is doing that here.”
