13-year-old Florida Girl Granted Abortion

PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (AHN) - The controversy over whether a 13-year-old girl in DCF custody can have an abortion ended Monday after a Palm Beach County judge ruled she had a constitutional right to the procedure despite DCF's objections.

"Legally speaking, it's not a difficult decision to make," Circuit Judge Ronald Alvarez said. "Morally speaking, it's a very difficult decision for this court to make. ... But I'm not here to make the moral decision. I'm here to make the legal decisions."
