WJ: A judge in England has given doctors permission to perform an abortion on a young woman with severe learning disabilities, according to Yahoo News.
As of now, the source of the pregnancy is unclear. An investigation is underway, and the current assumption is that she was either raped or impregnated by a man with similar disabilities, the report said.
DNA tests are being conducted to establish the identity of the father.
The decision was made by the euphemistically named Court of Protection in London, which specializes in cases involving people who lack the mental capacity to make decisions for themselves, Yahoo reported.
The woman, who was not identified, is in her 20s but has the mental age of a young child. read more
