Late yesterday she was committed to a mental health facility:
On Wednesday, Collins issued a magistrate’s hold ordering the county’s civil commitment investigator, Todd Sprague, to evaluate Burkholder’s mental status. He issued a report, which Collins relied on to order her to a mental health facility. She will leave Thursday morning.In order to obtain a medical procedure--one even the prosecutor acknowledged she has a right to have--her best bet, thanks to the officials past and present in Yamhill Co., is being committed. And that's certainly not a guarantee.
The decision regarding the abortion will be left up to doctors at the new facility.
