    This is obviously not simply a "medical procedure" and it carries constitutional implications.

    Our health insurance covers all prenatal care for minor females, including the delivery, and the hospital stay after the birth. That said, it covers absolutely nothing, for the baby that is born, because the baby isn't technically a dependent of the primary insurance holder. So if I had a 16yo daughter, our insurance would pay for everything related to HER medical expenses, but wouldn't cover a thing for her baby.

    Texas NARAL statement on the decision:

    Heather Busby, executive director of Austin-based NARAL Pro Choice Texas told The Times the R.E.K. case does not set any new or troubling precedent.


    “We support this woman and every young woman’s decision, whatever their decision is about their pregnancy,” she said. “It’s a victory for women’s reproductive health. It confirms that women should have the ability to determine what happens to their bodies and what happens with a pregnancy, no matter what the choice is.”

    Texas parents agree to let pregnant teen keep her baby - latimes.com
    I do find it interesting that the argument used to stop the abortion was the protection granted under Roe v. Wade, just flipped.

    Agreed, this Heather Busby just made (and cheered) the pro-choice argument to a 'T.'

    our (united states) government does provide medical expenses for babies born to poor women. all you have to do (as the mother) is prove that you have no income or ability to provide medical expenses for your child. which a 16 year old mother could easily do. it may not be the greatest coverage, but a baby will not be denied.

    This is mental. I hope this girl is ready to work hard throughout her pregnancy because I bet her folks won't be giving her a penny.

    I see. They'd better hope for a healthy baby...

    I'm torn about this. She's way too young and I can totally see where her parents are coming from but she should be able to decide what happens to her own body. Pro choice means supporting every choice even an objectively stupid one. Her parents shouldn't be crying now, they should have raised her better. Same with the parents of that stupid looking teen who knocked her up.

    But if the 16-year-old is still a dependent herself - and technically not poor if living under the roof of the 16-year-old's mother. It sounds like BoogsBun is saying that there is a gap in coverage for the baby where the 16-year-old would give birth under those circumstances.

    sorry, but our government does provide in these circumstances. the hard part is filling out all the forms and applying for the aide. many people don't have the paitence to do so.....but it is there. the grandparents would not be billed for the grandchild's expenses.

    Can't blame the parents for not raising her right. They may have hammered safe sex into her head for years, but teens will still be stupid and fuck without protection. We don't know.

    I agree, Greys. It might not have anything to do with how they raised her. Horny teens will do what they want to do.

    16 is very young BUT I've known quite a few girls from school who had babies at that age and they turned out fine and have nice families. So it's not always bad.

    Yeah pretty much. Our insurance doesn't cover dependent's dependents, unless we have legal guardianship of our grandchild, or adopt it, etc. The grandbaby would have to go on Hoosier Healthwise.

    If she doesn't plan on mooching off the system this is exactly what she'll be doing once the baby is born. Working her ass off to survive.

    I also had friends that had babies at 16 and in their early 30s they became grandmas. You would think they would try to break the cycle. Some of them have grandchildren not much younger then my son!

    Well, in Poland when you go to school at 40 you can still sue your parents for financial support because you're educating yourself and it's their duty to pay for it. And judges are actually approving of this.
