Florida Court Forces Teen to Carry Out Pregnancy

A Florida appellate court has blocked a 16-year-old from getting an abortion, saying that she is not “sufficiently mature” to choose to end her pregnancy, reports Axios. The teen said in her petition to bypass parental consent, according to Florida law, that she was “not ready to have a baby,” she does not have a job, she is “still in school” and the father is unable to assist her. Additionally, she argued that her legal guardian “is fine” with her decision to get an abortion. A lower Florida court had ruled that the teenager, who is unidentified, was not mature enough to decide to get an abortion. The teen then filed an appeal, and the appellate court upheld the previous decision.
