Appeals Court Decision Reverses Forced Abortion


An Appeals Court threw out this week a lower court order that a mentally ill woman in Massachusetts undergo an abortion and forced sterilization. 

Norfolk Family and Probate Court Judge Christina Harms had ruled on January 6 that the 32-year-old could be “coaxed, bribed, or even enticed…by ruse” until she was sedated for the procedures.

The woman, who is identified only by the pseudonym “Mary Moe,” is approximately five months pregnant.
