The Las Vegas Sun reports that Washoe County District Court Judge Egan Walker on Monday asked the Nevada Supreme Court to let him go ahead with hearings Tuesday to collect medical evidence about the woman's case.

The woman's parents want the state high court to stop the proceedings.

They argue that as their daughter's legal guardians, they have exclusive authority over her health care decisions.

The parents want the baby to be born and perhaps offered for adoption.

They say their daughter has the mental capacity of a 6-year-old. She was living at a group home when she became pregnant.
