The illegal immigrant teenager at the center of a legal battle over access to abortion had an abortion on Wednesday morning, according to her attorneys.
The American Civil Liberties Union of D.C., which represents the girl, tweeted the news the teenager ended her pregnancy with the message, "Justice prevailed."
The girl's name has not been released and she is known as Jane Doe in court documents.
In a statement provided by the ACLU on Wednesday, Jane Doe said she was "touched" by the letters of support her lawyers received.
"It has been very difficult to wait in the shelter for news that the judges in Washington, D.C. have given me permission to proceed with my decision," said Jane Doe in a statement tweeted by the ACLU. "This is my life, my decision. I want a better future. I want justice."
On Tuesday, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the Trump administration and allowed the girl in federal custody in Texas to obtain an abortion. Before the Justice Department could appeal the federal appeals court's Tuesday decision, the teenager had the abortion.
