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.
"The NRA is funded by the gun lobbyists," said Walsh. "The recommendations [from the NRA] are to keep the flow and sale of guns. Three million guns are imported in the United States every year, five million guns that are manufactured here are sold."
As a responsible gun owner himself, Walsh recommends the following to improve gun safety and gun control:
"I say to Smith & Wesson, to Remington, all the other gun manufacturers, 'what about putting a GPS chip in those guns?'"
Seated across from the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host, Walsh expounded upon his plan:
"You [gun owners] assume the responsibility and the cost. I have proposed this to White House, to Congress. Put a GPS chip in that gun. And so the responsible gun owner whose house gets robbed by some little punks, and those guns are sold to the bad guys, that you'd be able to activate it like I have an iPad, and if somebody steals my iPad, I can activate that iPad app and you can track it."
Watch the clip and listen to the interviews as Walsh shares with Morgan his experience seeing guns "going into the hands of people that we have absolutely no accountability for," while Evan Madison and the 16-year-old girl's lawyers further detail the reasons why the soon-to-be parents whouldn't be forced to end the pregnancy, which is in it's first trimester.
