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.

Great news, and brings to light the horrendous parents that coerce their children to abort their grandkids.
Before the fact? Know what hours a girl is most likely to get pregnant? The hours right after school to 6pm when parents, both mom and dad get home from work. Both parents are being forced to work to pay bills that mom can no longer be at home. I realize this is not true for all mothers, but it is for a majority.
There is no “choice” with this crowd.
Yes, before the fact, like having a discusison with your child about sexual activity on multiple occasions during their pre-teeen and teen years... Like I have done.
Talking does work, even when they roll their eyes and say “But Dad...”, and I respond with “But nothing...”.
It is a parents responsibility to communicate, not just threaten.
I’m the daddy, I take responsibility for my children. And yes, that leads to yelling and punishments on occation, but it also leads to “Your the greatest dad ever.” from my daughter and, “Thanks dad, I was wrong.” from my son.
I hand out praise just as easily as punishment, both where warented. And while I’m no where near perfect by any means or stretch of the imagination, I do try to be fair.
So I repeat myself... Where were these parents BEFORE the fact?
And yes, I would be the typical outraged father looking for a pound of flesh too, but I’d also talk.
Ugh. Horrible situation.
bad parenting before and now too apparently
It can’t be legal to force someone to get an abortion
The way that is stated it could mean her parent or her sperm donor. "Her father" would clarify that. Boy, am I feelin' picky this morning!
Of course the kids are sexually active. They were made active not of their own choice and now they attempt to drown out memories of sex that was confusing, physically painful, and humiliating with sex that they get to choose.
The parents here naturally want to make everything go away with an abortion. If they were parents were willing to invest more than perfunctory time in their child to begin it would never have gotten to this point.
An earlier poster babbled about both parents being forced to work. That is and has been for the last forty years bullsh!t. Two cars is a want, not a need. Cable or satellite television is a want, not a need. Eating out, or cooking fresh produce every day is a want, not a need. You see where this goes, even if you don't like it.
AA halls are filled with the wreckage parents like these leave in their wake. At least the young girl is made of better stuff than those who brought her forth.
"Forced?" As in, forced to select a house they can't afford, forced to obtain a mortgage; forced to buy a car with a car loan; forced to use credit cards; forced to pay for cable tv, extra computers, toys, restaurant food, wardrobes, vacations...
parents.. did you ever had the talk with your daughter? If you didn’t this is what’ll happen...We told our sons that it takes 2 people to produce a baby - unless the girl is another VIRGIN with a special child, like Mary had.
The awful truth is for most working moms, choosing a lifestyle that isn't possible on one income is the reason they work.
That and the fact that many men today also choose higher lifestyles than their incomes can support, so they too, contribute to the fact that the mothers of their children seek employment rather than tend to the most important job in the world, raising their own children!
Many couples have never grown out of their own childhoods of wanting to have all of the "bells and whistles" their own parents provided them, so even when they decide to have families of their own, find that they need two incomes to buy everything they see TV families having regardless of their ability to pay for it, so they put buying "stuff" over the responsibility of caring for their young.
It is really rare in America, for mothers to be "forced to work" for the family to eat.
You nailed it!
Well said! So sick of the excuse making that leads to leaving children to be raised by strangers.
...they put buying “stuff” over the responsibility of caring for their young.
