A Houston teenager suing her parents for allegedly pushing her to have an abortion, has won in court.
The unidentified 16-year-old is ten months pregnant and said her parents used physical and verbal threats in attempts to force her to abort her unplanned baby.
The lawsuit alleged that the girl's mother threatened to "slip (the teen) an abortion pill," took her daughter's phone and car, and kept her home from school to punish her for choosing not to abort her fetus.
With the support of the child's father and his parents, the teen asked the court for an injunction to keep her parents from threatening her.
Her parents have now agreed to let her continue carrying the baby and they gave her permission to marry the child's father.
The legal age to marry in Texas is 16 with parental consent.
The girl's parents have denied the allegations in the lawsuit and called the case baseless.
