Abortion - #1675 - Did DHS Pressure Teen to Get Abortion

A DEPARTMENT OF Human Services caseworker pressured a pregnant Mayfair teenager to undergo a late-term abortion by threatening to take away either her toddler or her unborn baby if she had the child, according to the teen's foster mother. The alleged strong-arm tactic happened one day after DHS learned of the pregnancy, when the girl was about 22 weeks pregnant, according to her foster mother and the girl's social worker, Marisol Rivera. In Photo: Marisol Rivera (right), speaking with a foster mother, says she lost her job for refusing to take teen for late-term abortion.

  1. This is despicable. If it is true the caseworker should be fired. Unfortunately that is about all that can be done.

  2. Thanks for your comment, we can be more aware of what is happening in our own community, and educate others what a baby at various stages of development in utero, is capable of, so they hopefully, would not allow the abortion and help others to make informed decisions.
