In the lawsuit, R.E.K. claimed that her mother conspired to slip her an abortion pill if she did not willingly abort, and that her father resorted to physical and verbal threats. On Wednesday, February 13, a Harris County, Texas court issued a restraining order against the parents.
R.E.K.'s story is so outstanding that her plight has made national news for three days now. So what does that flurry of news coverage say about forced abortion in Texas and in America?
Our friends in pregnancy centers across Texas would certainly say that forced abortion is woefully underreported. The countless girls unaware of their right to not to abort are the ones who, unfortunately, never make headlines. R.E.K. is exceptional because she shouted loud enough to be heard.
