Law Helps 14-Year-Old Pennsylvania Girl Fight Unwanted Abortion
Pennsylvania Pastors’ Network Applauds Those Who Value Life
Philadelphia, PA—A 14-year-old girl was granted an emergency injunction last week because she didn’t want to abort her baby—even though her parents did.
The Independence Law Center helped the girl from York, Pa, to fight the abortion in court. The mother and stepfather of the girl had
scheduled an abortion for their daughter against her wishes and against the wishes of the family of the unborn child’s father.
"This is a hard road ahead for this young girl, but we applaud her and the
future paternal grandparents of the child for standing up for life," said
Colin Hanna, president of the Pennsylvania Pastors’Network and Let Freedom Ring. "Although this girl is in a difficult situation today, it is a blessing that she has chosen not to make a mistake that would end a child’s life."
The court-ordered injunction was presented to the girl’s parents and Planned
Parenthood of York.
