A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeal cast a skeptical eye Monday on the country's most-restrictive abortion law, which prohibits the procedure after 20 weeks of pregnancy unless there's a medical emergency.
"Both groups need timely access to health care in order to adequately protect their health," Crepps said. "The delays associated with the law will harm minors' health. What the state improperly characterizes as a sacrifice of parental rights, in favor of minors seeking prenatal care, is actually a sacrifice of the health of minors seeking abortions."
The attorney, Janet Crepps, said Alaska equal rights laws are not supposed to allow the government to treat a girl who wants an abortion differently than one who wants to carry her pregnancy to full term.
