Florida abortion lawA 16-year-old in Florida who sought a court waiver to terminate her pregnancy has been denied, with the court ruling she isn't "mature" enough to receive an abortion.

The teenager, who is only identified as Jane Doe 22-B, sought approval to have an abortion, without the written consent of a parent or guardian, in Escambia County court. Circuit Court Judge Jennifer J. Frydrychowicz denied the waiver.

The teen then appealed the decision, but three judges in the First District Court of Appeal ruled that she did not present "clear and convincing evidence that she was sufficiently mature to decide whether to terminate her pregnancy."
