Texas Teen Wins Right to Give Birth Over Parents’ Objections

Posted by   + Show Post

 I'm curious as too what everyone's thought on this would be.

I'm completely pro-choice and feel no one has the right to try to persuade anyone including their daughter to get an abortion.

I am so glad she won. I think she needs to move away from her parents.

I am being pressured about having an abortion and I'm 30 yrs old. I cant imagine what this would feel like at 16. I'm crushed and hurting so bad but I wont do it.

I think its bs the parents still have to support her And Pay half the hospital bill.

The father should have to pay half or the the little girl so bent on being a big girl should have to pay all of it

I'm glad the teen won this case. It's a shame how her parents are showing themselves! It's a slap in their face since they'll be paying half her medical bill.

Good for her. Now she needs to get on with her life and live with all the decisions she made for herself away from her parents.

if she is big enough to have a baby, she should pay for her own medical bills.

Way to go parents! I hope they're proud of themselves. They raised a strong willed girl who knows what she wants, doesn't give in to pressure, educates herself about her rights, and is smart enough to go about getting it.


I think on some level, any parent would be proud. Even in this situation.

Why should the parents have to pay her bills? She made an adult decision and should have to deal with the adult consequences.
