Ad Feedback

The parents of a pregnant 16-year-old Texas girl agreed Monday not to force their daughter to have an abortion.

The girl, who is 10 weeks pregnant, filed suit against her parents for allegedly pressuring her to abort her unborn child.

The girl also claimed her parents threatened her with physical force if she didn't go through with the abortion.

The teen and her 16-year-old boyfriend said they never considered terminating the pregnancy.

The Texas Center for Defense of Life, who is representing the teens, said Monday's agreement is a major victory in the fight against abortion.

"Right now it's a victory for life, and we're glad they stood up for the right for life and our client recognizes her unborn child has a right to live and she wants to protect that," Stephen Casey, founder of the Texas Center for Defense of Life, said.

The girl's parents also gave consent for their daughter to marry her boyfriend and father of the baby.
