Attorneys with Texas Center for Defense of Life (www.TCDL.org) representing a 16-yearold Houston, Texas girl obtain injunction against girl’s parents for duration of pregnancy

HOUSTON, Texas — Today, attorneys with Texas Center for Defense of Life, who are representing a 16-year-old pregnant teenage girl living in the Houston area, were granted a long-term injunction in the case by the 308th Family District Court of Harris County, Texas, prohibiting their client’s parents from coercing her to have an abortion throughout the duration of her pregnancy.  The language of the order signed by the Court was negotiated and agreed to by the girl’s parents.

“This is a tremendous victory and another life has been saved,” said TCDL attorney and President Greg Terra. He continued, “Our victory today stands for the principle that ‘choice’ goes both ways. Under Roe v. Wade and post-Roe cases, a teenage girl has the absolute legal right to choose life, even over the strong objections, pressure, and punishments of her parents. We are extremely happy with the outcome today and we are very proud of our teenage client for being strong enough to stand against her parents to save her unborn child’s life.”

    I am extremely happy she will not have to have a abortion, but wonder what this does to parents rights. Such as a child can have a abortion without consent from the parent or father of the baby. This somehow adds more flame that parents have no say about their minor children.
