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.

The lawsuit claims R.E.K.'s parents kept her home from school, took her phone and car and that she, the father of her child and the child's paternal grandmother have been harassed by her father. It also claims R.E.K.'s mother suggested she was going to slip her daughter the abortion pill.

R.E.K is being represented by attorney for the Texas Center for Defense of Life.

"...She is legally protected. They cannot drag her to get an abortion, force an abortion on our client," attorney Stephen Casey told Click2Houston.

Under Roe v. Wade a woman has a right to decide whether she wants an abortion and under Bellotti v. Baird a teenager has the right to make her own decisions concerning her reproductive health.

if she is such a "big girl" about it, then i suggest the parents to tell her to move out, get a job, raise the kid on her own with the baby's father.
lets see how long she lasts...

she clearly got enough galls to get a lawyer...

Good luck with her ruined future goals of 2013. At 16 unless she works insanely hard or is blessed with the luck of the Gods she's screwed.

I read in another article that she has been living with her grandparents for at least 7 months, so she must have gotten pregnant while living with them.

at the end of the day they can't force her to have an abortion. I wonder if she is thinking she can just have the baby and her parents or grandparents will bear the financial burden and raise the child while she does what she wants. She really needs to think realistically and comprehend whether she will be able to raise this child. Teen pregnancy is a serious problem in the US and it doesn't help that they have a reality show named "16 and pregnant" Maybe this girl needs to sit down and watch it and realise raising a baby won't be as easy as she thinks.

Whether she has the finances to raise a baby or not ( And trust me i'm usually very for abortion like these when it comes to situations where the child cannot be raised properly ) it is her choice..
Forcing her to have an abortion will do more damage then good.
Anyone heard of the young girl who hung herself after her parents pressured her into an abortion? She left a note saying she ''needed to be with her baby.''
An abortion must be someone's OWN choice ( Hence the term pro-choice )
If it's not it will be more traumatizing then many of us can imagine.

If she really cannot raise it but she doesn't want an abortion there is always the option to carry the child for someone else.
many couples who cannot have children themselves are interested in newborn babies.

Anyway to William:
She is a prostitute for having sex? Women are looked down on for that?
What about men? Why aren't they looked down upon for having sex?
Oh yeah i remember!
It's because for some reason some cultures still excuse men for walking away from responsibility or acting like animals with no self control when it comes to sex by saying ''He's a man, He has different needs!"
"It's not his fault he had unprotected sex.. he was horny."

Where 2 messed around 2 are to blame.

It's a double standard in society which won't change anytime soon. There are lots of double standards tho, such as if a woman wants to keep the child but the man doesn't, she can choose to keep it. If the woman doesn't want to keep the child but the man does, she can choose to abort it. The man has no say.

Lets see how she adjusts life as a young teen mum! Lets see if the father of the unborn would be sticking by her side long enough to see it being born.

I agree that abortion would be traumatizing if she didn't want to which is why I think that if such a situation occurs where the man doesn't want the child then just don't make him responsible for child support. Otherwise one mistake and if your girl decides she wants to milk you for the next 18 years (nothing's gonna force her to spend that child support on her child) cos she's your crazy ex then goodnight sweet future. It's not unheard of for girls (of the crazy kind) to pick up your condom off the floor/trash and then impregnate themselves or try to.

I wondered if such a system would work.. but then i realized that the whole ''paying child support thing'' is one of the few things that still kinda keep those horndog type of guys in check.
I mean think about it.. Now those guys are still a bit scared/wary of having to pay child support eventually etc.
So as far as possible for them they still kinda keep themselves in check.

Just like how for the girl ''getting pregnant and maybe needing an abortion'' keeps them (slightly) on their feet child support is that scare for the guys.
If we made a system where when the girl gets pregnant the guy can decide to bail and even get out of paying child support.. a lot less of those sort of guys will bother with condoms or even care to check if the girl is on birth control.. Because why would they? they can get out without having to take any responsibility and then a lot more unwanted pregnancies will occur. ( Or a lot more abortions because those girls realize they won't get child support and abortions aren't exactly cost and risk free )

So yes even if the system right now can be taken advantage off and can possibly screw over some young guys.. the opposite can be taken much more advantage of and will screw a lot more people over and cost much more money.
I know that there are insane girls like that and to be honest they creep me out.. But the only solution seems to be to not have sex with such insane girls ( or girls you do not fully trust or know ) and realizing that sex comes with risks.. it's as simple as that.
If you want to be completely safe then do not have sex, If you do want to have sex feel free but be aware you're ALWAYS taking a risk.

I hope i made sense since English isn't my first language and it's a difficult thing to explain haha ^^
