Nebraska Court Rules Teen Too Immature for an Abortion, Fine to Raise a Kid

http://www.slate.com/blogs/xx_factor...wpsrc=upworthy

By Katy Waldman

The Nebraska Supreme Court denied a 16-year-old foster child’s request for an abortion on Friday because she was "not sufficiently mature" to make the decision herself. So instead, this immature young woman who does not want a baby will become a mother. Everyone wins.

The teenager, identified in the court ruling as Anonymous 5, showed evidence of mature reasoning at a confidential hearing. She worried that she didn’t have the financial resources to support a child or to be “the right mom that I would like to be right now.” Yet district judge Peter C. Bataillon, whom the Raw Story reports once served on the committee for an Omaha anti-abortion group, disagreed, and the Supreme Court upheld his ruling in a split vote of 5-2.

<snip>

Since Anonymous 5 is a ward of the State Department of Health and Human Services—she actually requested the abortion at the confidential hearing dissolving the parental rights of her biological mother and father, who were physically abusive—she doesn’t have anyone to grant her consent. “She is in legal limbo—a quandary of the Legislature's making,” wrote Judge William Connolly in his Supreme Court minority opinion.

Time to run away to your neighboring state. How absolutely ridiculous. I feel sad for her. This mess better be appealed.

Too immature to make a decision about her body but mature enough to raise a child. Okay

Yep. parents should have a right to kill their children, perhaps..

There was nothing in the judge's ruling that said she has to keep the child after she gives birth. Besides, if she was mature enough to make a decision about her body, she wouldn't have gotten herself in this predicament to begin with.

Since Nebraska state law requires signed and notarized consent from a parent or guardian, and since her parents no longer have the legal right to make that decision for her, the court's hands seem to be tied. I feel bad for the young lady, but as I stated earlier, she put herself in this predicament.

That is the dumbest thing ever. If you are too immature for an abortion you are way too immature to raise a kid and the abortion is the better option.

A fetus is not a kid. It doesnt technically exist yet. Better to never have to exist than to brought into a World with people who cant properly care for you and be forced into an unfair and cruel situation, if that is what it is going to be.

Again, there was nothing in the court's ruling that said Anonymous 5 has to keep and raise the child after she gives birth. Also, it seems as if you're absolving her of any responsibility in this matter. Since there was nothing in any news article that suggested her pregnancy was the result of a rape, I have to conclude she chose to have unprotected sex. If that was indeed the case, that's on her, not the courts.

Re: Nebraska Court Rules Teen Too Immature for an Abortion, Fine to Raise a Kid

I have to think this poor girl has had a rough life not of her making if she's in foster care. Terrible position she's in, not sure what I'd do if I was the Judge in that case.
