    Supreme Court throws out lower court decision that allowed immigrant teen to obtain abortion

    The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed a lower court's decision that allowed an undocumented immigrant teenager to obtain an abortion over the protests of the Trump administration.
    The action, which came in an unsigned opinion without noted dissents, throws out a precedent that might allow other teenagers in the same circumstance to obtain an abortion.
    The five-page order directs the lower courts to dismiss as moot the teen's individual claim seeking access to abortion services. The girl, known in court papers as Jane Doe, was able to terminate her pregnancy before the high court got involved. She has since turned 18 and is no longer in federal custody.

    They dismissed the case since she already got her abortion the point was moot. They made no ruling about any legality.

    They dismissed it to kill the precedent.

    They threw it out specifically to ensure there wasn't a precedent. This was as much of a win as the Trump admin was going to get, since your little liberal already killed her anchor baby.
