Parents agree not to coerce teen daughter into abortion

CNN and the Houston Chronicle have stories regarding the agreement on the case where a Texas teen sued her parents after they allegedly attempted to coerce her into an abortion.  From the Chronicle:
The recently filed lawsuit ended Monday with an agreement that the teen's parents would not use physical force or psychological coercion. They also agreed to pay half of the hospital bill if the girl has not married when the baby is delivered and let her use her car to go to school and work.

CNN's story includes an interview with the child's father who seems mature for a 16-year-old, while the video shows the teen's father swinging his jacket at TV cameras.
