I just had a random question and thought you might be able to answer it for me. If a minor was pregnant, legally does she have the right to choose what she wants to do? If she wanted to have the baby, would her parents legally be able to force her into abortion against her will simply because she’s a minor? No one I know is in this situation, I was just curious.
A minor has a constitutional right to choose life and carry her child to term. This decision is hers alone. No one, not even her parents, can force her to abort. A parent who tries to coerce their daughter into committing an abortion could be subject to a multitude of legal charges. Criminal charges could be pressed against the parents in the 37 states that have fetal homicide laws. Criminal prosecution for child abuse could also occur. Parents and abortionists could be civilly liable for battery, negligence, false imprisonment, or other claims.
Strangely, she is afforded all of these protections while she holds the legal right to literally kill her living son or daughter for any reason at all.
