バイデン政権は、ドブス判決後の未成年者の妊娠中絶の権利を保護することを目指しています

The Biden administration is working on ways to protect the abortion rights of pregnant migrant minors who are in government custody following the Supreme Court’s ruling overturning ロー対ウェイド事件. 先月ウェイド, 議論に精通している情報筋によると.

The Supreme Court’s 決定 to eliminate a constitutional right to abortion has placed added pressure on the administration to protect abortion rights, including for those in government custody. Federal agencies have been caught in the crosshairs as they try to navigate states that ban or will ban abortion.
The Department of Health and Human Services, 例えば, is charged with the care of migrant children who arrive in the United States without a parent or guardian until they’re released to a sponsor, like a relative, 国で. Some of those minors can be pregnant when they come into custody, making the shifting legal landscape difficult for shelter providers to navigate.
    The Dobbs ruling has created an untenable and dangerous situation for pregnant girls in the custody of the Office of Refugee Resettlement, many of whom have fled from extreme violence and abuse,” said Neha Desai, senior director of immigration at the National Center for Youth Law.
      It is critical that this administration take a stand to protect the basic health of these girls by issuing clear guidance ensuring access to abortion services for girls, regardless of what state they happen to be placed in,” 彼女は付け加えた.
        7月現在 18, あった 11,483 children in HHS custody, according to government data. It’s unclear how many pregnant girls are currently in custody, or how many have sought abortions.
        Minors are given an initial medical exam, including a pregnancy test for girls. If pregnant, the Office of Refugee Resettlement, an agency within HHS, usually places girls in licensed shelters that can provide needed services.
          ORR has previously released guidance specific to reproductive health care services, including abortion. に 2020, 代理店 issued a policy memo for shelters caring for unaccompanied migrant children as a result of litigation that detailed access to pregnancy related medical services and options.
          And last year, in response to a Texas abortion law outlawing the procedure after six weeksbefore many know they are pregnantORR followed up with guidance to care providers in Texas and provided instruction on transferring children who are discovered to be pregnant after placement to a state that allows abortion if need be.
          The recent Supreme Court decision may broaden that as more states crack down on abortion.
          My understanding is that the agency is working on guidance which builds from both the 2020 policy memo resulting from the Garza litigation, as well as the field guidance issued after Texas restricted access to abortion in 2021,Desai told CNN, citing the memo and guidance that has already been released.
          CNN reached out to HHS for comment.
            Immigration and Customs Enforcement also recently reminded its workforce of its policies, as it relates to pregnant detainees, though the agency generally doesn’t arrest or detain pregnant women.
            声明の中で, an ICE spokesperson said the agencywill continue to comply with federal law and abide by current detention standards which ensure that pregnant detainees in custody have access to pregnancy services, including routine and/or specialized prenatal care, pregnancy testing, comprehensive counseling and assistance, postpartum follow up, lactation services and abortion services.
