Let’s review here: It is the allegedly bigoted Trump Administration trying to preserve and protect the life of an immigrant baby. It is a leftist judge who wants to have him killed. In fact, the Trump Administration has prevented the deaths of many unborn children by taking girls at federally-funded shelters to pregnancy resource centers rather than abortion clinics.
Of course, there’s more at stake here than human life, although there’s nothing else at stake that could be more important than human life. The Justice Department has argued that we cannot give pregnant minors an incentive to cross the border illegally in order to get abortions, which will often be tax funded.
And these girls certainly cannot have a “constitutional right” to an abortion in the United States because they are not United States citizens. The best thing, then, is to get them the care that will preserve their own dignity and the dignity of their unborn children.
This is not only the legally and morally correct approach, but it’s the only approach you can support if you want to lay claim to the “compassion for immigrant children” banner.
If your compassion for immigrant children involves having them dismembered with a pair of sharpened forceps (a D&E abortion, which is the type this child will suffer at his stage of development), then I would suggest that your notion of compassion is rather insane.
