Federal officials, however, will not transport her or allow anyone else to transport her to get the procedure.
"Janes everywhere are rejoicing that their dignity and humanity have been recognized and respected by the federal court", Susan Hays, legal director of Jane's Due Process - a legal referral source for teens facing unintended pregnancies in Texas - said in a prepared statement.
At a hearing Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan rebuked the government lawyers.
A federal judge has ordered the government to allow a pregnant undocumented teen immigrant in detention in Texas to get an abortion after the Trump administration denied her access to one.
"It's unprecedented, it's unconstitutional and it's also unconscionable", said Brigitte Amiri, the ACLU attorney representing the girl.
The woman has already received a court order permitting her to have the abortion, but officials refused to transport her or temporarily release her so supporters could transport her to the clinic.
He said if the courts force the government to facilitate the abortion, it will be turning Texas into a "sanctuary state for abortions".
The ACLU attempted to addJane Doe's case onto a related case in California, and while U.S. Magistrate Judge Laurel Beeler said she would rule in their favor, she added that she can not take her case because the girl is in Texas.

And Lloyd (who works under Trump) is instead, says the ACLU, sending minors to "crisis pregnancy centres" that urge them not to terminate their pregnancies, rather then giving them access to abortion care. "They are effectively holding her hostage".
On Wednesday, the judge ruled that the government must allow the teen to travel to a facility to have an abortion, according to the ACLU website.
The ACLU hailed the ruling. She is also suing Scott Lloyd, the director of the Office of Refugee Resettlement, for punitive damages.
'There is no constitutional right for a pregnant minor to illegally cross the USA border and get an elective abortion while in federal custody, ' it said.
Government lawyers argued that the 17-year-old girl's case should not be added to the lawsuit because the girl is staying at a shelter that is not religiously affiliated, according to the report.
During the hearing, Chutkan also answered her own questions, saying the girl's legal status was "irrelevant" and that "despite the fact that she's in this country illegally, she still has constitutional rights". "Texas has a legitimate and substantial interest in preserving and promoting fetal life".
The ACLU claims the federal office violated the girl's constitutional rights by refusing to help her get an abortion through the taxpayer-funded shelter in Texas.
Instead, the Department of Health and Human Services has taken them to pregnancy resource centers. She must be taken to "obtain the counseling required by state law on October 19, 2017, and to obtain the abortion procedure on October 20, 2017 and/or October 21, 2017, as dictated by the abortion providers' availability and any medical requirement". Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) appears to have changed its policy regarding the detainment of pregnant people and is no longer immediately releasing them, leading some women, featured in a complaint against ICE, to experience complications in their pregnancy, including miscarriage.
