Case Page: Southcentral PA Teenager is Protected from a Forced Abortion

by | Jul 16, 2012 | Case | 0 comments

Attorney Randall Wenger was given the unique opportunity of helping a minor teenager save her baby. She was being pressured by her mother to have an abortion. However, Pennsylvania law makes clear that it is illegal to coerce a minor to have an abortion. The Law Center sought and won an emergency injunction to prevent the abortion the day before the teenager was scheduled to go to the abortion clinic. Since winning the injunction, the teenager and her mother visited a crisis pregnancy center and discovered through ultrasound that she was five months pregnant. She has since given birth to a healthy baby.
