Judge strikes down Alabama abortion law requiring minors to have consent from court

Alabama legislators in 2014 changed the state’s process for girls who can’t or won’t get their parents’ permission for an abortion to obtain permission from a court instead.
Both the judge and the ACLU said they were aware of no other state with such a law.
The girl was 13 weeks pregnant and had just completed fifth grade when she went before a family court judge, according to a court record.
The Alabama Court of Civil Appeals on July 12 ruled in favor of the girl.
The state attorney general’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
