Amicus Brief: Azar v. Garza, D.C. Circuit

NAPAWF, the Center for Reproductive Rights, and the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health (NLIRH) filed this amicus brief with the US Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in support of the “Janes,” a plaintiff class of unaccompanied immigrant minors in the custody of the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) who are being denied access to abortion. The brief, which applies a human rights and reproductive justice analysis, demonstrates that ORR’s actions violate unaccompanied immigrant minors’ fundamental rights by effectively denying access to abortion altogether. The brief was filed on behalf of a coalition of 34 diverse organizations committed to reproductive health, rights, and justice for women and for all people.
