NBC NATIONAL NEWS — A lawsuit claims a 16-year-old girl is being coerced to have an abortion against her will.
The teen is two months pregnant and is represented by lawyers with the Texas Center for Defense of Life. A judge granted a temporary restraining order to save the baby's life.
"We were asking judge to stop them physically forcing her to have an abortion. She is legally protected. They cannot drag her to get an abortion, force an abortion on our client," attorney Stephen Casey said.
The lawsuit is eight pages long and details alleged verbal abuse by the teen's parents.
In the lawsuit, the teen claims her mom "... invited the paternal grandparents to a bar for further discussion, where she suggested that she might slip her an abortion pill through deception."
