News Media Quote Professor David S. Cohen in Pennsylvania Supreme Court Abortion Appeal

January 31, 2011

Professor David S. Cohen was quoted in "State Supreme Court to Hear Abortion Appeal," an article published in the Allentown Morning Call, Buck's County Courier Times, Trenton TimesHarrisburg Patriot News and Philadelphia’s ABC and FOX affiliate news websites.

The report focuses on the case In re Jane Doe, in which a female minor petitioned an Allegheny County judge for permission to have an abortion after she was unable to obtain consent from one of her parents, as required by the state Abortion Control Act. The initial request and the subsequent appeal were denied.

The girl's lawyers have now asked the state Supreme Court if the lower court should have done more.
