Family Court: Teen Sues Parents Over Abortion

Family Court: Teen Sues Parents Over Abortion

This will make future family gatherings extremely awkward. Attorneys for The Center for Defense of Life have filed a lawsuit on behalf of a Houston teen who says that her parents are forcing her to abort a child that she wants to keep. The 16-year-old girl is two months pregnant and wants a judge to prevent her mother and father from forcing her to get an abortion.

According to KTRK legal analyst Joel Androphy, her parents cannot force her to have an abortion. The girl alleges that on one occasion, her father told her that he was going to take her to have an abortion because the decision was "his" to make.

The man says this is false, and is convinced that someone is forcing his daughter to file the lawsuit.
