A pregnant Texas 16-year-old has gone to court to avoid having an abortion against her will, according to court documents.” We were asking the judge to stop them physically forcing her to have an abortion,” the plaintiff’s attorney Stephen Casey told Click2Houston.com. “They cannot drag her to get an abortion, force an abortion on our client.”
The pregnant young woman has lived with her grandparents for the past seven months, the court document states, and is nine weeks pregnant.
After the plaintiff informed her parents that she was pregnant, her mother pushed for the termination of the pregnancy, according to the petition. The plaintiff’s father said that the plaintiff’s “only option was for her to have an abortion,” the document states.
