Police stopped from helping pregnant teen, claims pro-lifer

A pro-life organization wants answers after police weren't allowed inside an abortion clinic to check on the welfare of a teenager. 

Cheryl Sullenger says the teenager was taken to the South Wind clinic, where her father had made an appointment. But the father does not have legal custody – her mother does – and the girl began texting her mother from inside the abortuary.

"So the mother found out," explains Sullenger,  "because the girl started texting her mom saying, I don't want to be at this abortion clinic, I don't want to have this abortion but they're making me do it."
