Pregnant Teen Sues Parents, Claiming Pressure to Abort Baby
A pregnant 16-year-old girl known as R.E.K. and hailing from Texas is suing her parents. But she’s not suing because her parents are trying to prevent her from getting an abortion. She’s suing because she says her parents are trying to force her to get an abortion.
According to the complaint, “R.E.K., plaintiff, is a 16-year-old girl, who is nine (9) weeks pregnant. She does not want an abortion but her mother and father are attempting to coerce her to have an abortion.”
A judge has given a temporary restraining order to stop any abortion. According to the complaint, R.E.K.’s mother, Denise, “informed them that R.E.K. having the baby was the biggest mistake of her life, that Denise had already had four abortions, and it was the right thing to do in this situation.”
Her father, Jeffrey, told her that she would get an “a** whoopin’” if she didn’t get the abortion, according to the complaint.
