With legal, social, and ethical implications all colliding in Texas, on Monday evening "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed Evan Madison for a live interview that focused on his pregnant girlfriend, and her mother and father's attempt to abort her pregnancy.

Madison's girlfriend, the 16-year-old mother-to-be, sued her parents for attempting to force her to abort her baby. Monday, the parents agreed in a state court to not coerce their daughter to terminate the pregnancy.

"We were always determined to have the baby," said Madison. "It didn't surprise me from her father, but her mother, yes, it surprised me," said the father of the unborn child, referring to his girlfriend's parents' reaction. "I honestly thought she would have been a lot more supportive than she was."

Also on the program, television host John Walsh shared his perspective on gun crime, gun control and gun manufacturing. FULL POST
