My niece is pregnant. She came to me in tears because her mom is not going to consent for her to have an abortion

I didnt even know you needed parental consent. She is lost and confused and she doesnt know what to do. She said the only way to get one done is a court order but i have no clue what that means and neither does she... I feel she knows what is best for her in this situation. She knows she is not ready to be a mom

ETA She is 17

ETA2: thank you for all your opinions and those who have helped. We are going to the court house tomorrow so she can fill out paperwork if all goes well she will get a hearing same day. After reading about others who have gone through it (on other websites) it should be very easy for her to get it done. She is at the top of her grade, graduating school early, has a job, and a full ride scholarship to college. I think any judge would agree she is mature enough to make her own decisions. Hopefully she can get this done and the procedure done ASAP

UPDATE: She got the procedure done today. It was quick and she is back home resting.

Her mom sucks for forcing her child to gestate against her will.

Wow, at that age, she should be able to make her own decision. Can you talk to her mom?

At 17 I wouldn't think it would be hard to get the court order or she could travel to another state without anyone's help as they could get in trouble.

That sucks, I am so sorry for your niece. I wish parental consent was not needed in all 50 states. Try talking to your sister, maybe you can get through to her.

Then your neice needs to start doing research for adoption agencies. They can sometimes help with expenses and this way she won't be the mom herself. It is also a very rough decision so if she decides to do that it will be a wonderful thing.
