Texas teen sues parents to stop them from forcing her abortion
A pregnant Texas teenager is suing her parents to stop them from forcing her to abort her unborn child.
Click2Houston reports a judge issued a temporary restraining order to prevent the abortion while the case is ongoing.
The 16-year-old, who is identified only by the initials R.E.K. because she is a minor, claims in the lawsuit her parents are coercing her to abort her 9-week-old fetus through both verbal and physical threats and harassment.
“(The father) stated he was going to take her to have an abortion and that the decision was his, end of story,” a copy of the lawsuit obtained by Click2Houston says.
