Parents Kidnap Daughter To Force Abortion of Mixed-Race Child

A Maine couple accused of tying up their 19-year-old daughter, throwing her in their car and driving her out of state to try to force her to get an abortion were doing so because the baby's father is black.  The daughter escaped and called police, who arrested her parents.  The parents were apparently taking their daughter to New York to try to force her to get an abortion there, police said.  The parents were arraigned Monday on kidnapping charges.
