Pregnant 16-year-old Sues Parents Who Are Forcing Her to Get an Abortion

A pregnant 16-year-old Houston girl claims her parents are coercing her to have an abortion, but she wants to have the child. She sued her parents and a judge granted a temporary restraining order to save the baby's life.

Update, Feb 19: The teen won. A judge granted her a long-term injunction against her parents. As part of the order, the girl will be able to use her car -- which her parents had taken away as part of their effort to force her to have an abortion -- to go to school, work and medical appointments. The parents will be liable for half of the hospital bill when she gives birth, unless she is married to the baby's 16-year-old father.
