Parental Guardians of Mentally Disabled Pregnant Woman Seek Nevada Supreme Court's Help in Support of Their Decision Against Abortion
The Los Angeles Times: In abortion fight, disabled woman's parents turn to Nevada high court, by John M. Glionna:

The couple on Friday filed a motion asking the state’s highest court to halt the proceedings by Washoe County District Judge Egan Walker, saying he lacks authority to make such a decision for their mentally impaired daughter, who officials say has the mental capacity of a 6-year-old. . . .
