    I saw that on the news and was horrified. Hey, I know what its like to have a 19 year old daughter pregnant by some guy I despise and know is bad news, but they went waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay over the edge.
    I heard on the late night news that the federal authorities are involved since they crossed state lines.
    Some people don't know when to let go of their kids and let them make their own mistakes. Did they not think how she would feel about THEM if they had succeeded?? Or that if she refused to sign the consent at the abortion clinic, that it would NOT get done no matter how much they protested??? I think they are a bit touched in the head.
    I feel so sorry for that poor girl. Not only is she truly all alone to have this baby, but she probably will not ever trust her parents again, and they in their stupidity will probably not see their grandchild. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

    Today I read that they were mad especially because they are white and the baby's dad is black.

    Crazy situation. Makes me sick. Parental "love" gone completely twisted and wrong.

    Don't get me wrong, the guy does sound like a piece of scum. But, if I recall, a-holes come in many different colors. All their actions are going to do is drive her right to jerks like that guy instead of keeping her away. What a mess!
