It can also be a euphemism for "My boyfriend's going to beat the crap out of me if I don't get that abortion." Not that she'd ever give that reason to a judge, of course.

Good point ... and if the judge agrees, he's facilitating the continuing abuse of a minor.

Boyfriends tend not to threaten beating, they just slide away. It is usually the baby boomer parents of the girl or the girl herself who are most motivated to abort.
Under 18...somebody's pregnant? Get the District Attorney on the case....that's a possible case of statutory rape..(depending on the state ((some are 16)). Time to start prosecuting for statutory rape. If the boy is 16 or under...prosecute the girl as well.
