12 year old rape victim does not know her own mind

"Former state court official Win Johnson and Lorie Mullins, executive director of COPE Pregnancy Centre hold an anti-abortion press conference Wednesday, July 19, 2017, at the Judicial Building in Montgomery."


[Salon 21 July 2017]

"Two conservative lawyers in Alabama held a press conference this week to denounce a court’s ruling allowing an abortion for a 12-year-old who was raped, reported."

"The attorneys Win Johnson and Lorie Mullins argued that the girl was not mature enough to make such a `life or death` decision..."

"The girl involved in the case sought a waiver from the parental consent law required for an underaged abortion in Alabama. The girl said she did not have a good relationship with her mother and that her father was out of the picture. A district attorney objected to the waiver, but a family court judge approved her request last month and an appeals court concurred."
