A pregnant 16-year-old in Texas is suing her parents to save her unborn baby.
She claims her parents are trying to force her 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 from physically forcing her to have an abortion. She is legally protected, so they cannot drag her to an abortion clinic and force an abortion on our client," said Stephen Casey, who is the teen's attorney.
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."
The teen also claims her father told her "he was going to force her to have an abortion and that the decision was his, end of story."
Even though she is a minor, the teen has the power to make the final decision about having an abortion.
"What Roe established, and the cases after that, was that a minor has an absolutely right to make her choice. And what's revealing is, a lot of times, when people say, 'I do want to make the choice,' people are shocked when they want to choose to carry the baby."
The teen's father says the allegations are false.
Another hearing is scheduled for Friday, Feb. 15.
