FoxNews is reporting that the teen, identified in court records as R.E.K., reached an agreement with her parents who were threatening her with physical force and other punishments because of her refusal to have an abortion.
Under the terms of the agreement, the parents will allow the girl to marry her 16 year-old boyfriend and father of the child, Evan Madison, and to give birth to their child.
Speaking to MyFoxHouston.com, Madison said the experience has been tough emotionally. "We've had fights and arguments over all of this and what will happen next because her parents are very unpredictable."
In addition to threatening to force her to have an abortion, the teen's parents also took away her car and cell phone. Under the terms of the agreement, they will have to return the car, pay her cell phone bill as well as half of her health insurance.
The teen was represented by the Texas Center for Defense of Life, who say they see the agreement as a victory in the fight against abortion.
"Right now it's a victory for life," said attorney Stephen Carey of Texas Center for Defense of Life, who represented the teen. "And we're glad that they stood up for the right to life and that they recognized, our client recognized that her child had the right to live and she wanted to protect that."
